NOVELIST, PLAYWRIGHT & POET
Arguably Ireland’s most influential novelist, James Joyce’s works include the world famous ‘Ulysses’ (1922). ‘Blooms Day’, which is celebrated annually in honour of the life of Joyce, derives its name from the book’s protagonist, Leopold Bloom, however, it is ‘Finnegans Wake’ that Joyce considered to be his best work. Sadly, he died in Zurich, Switzerland on January 13th, 1941, still disappointed with the reception that that publication had received, however he will go down in history as one of Ireland’s literary greats.
