James Joyce

by Edna O'Brien - £9.99  Orion Books (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781474614450 | ISBN 10: 1474614450

Edna O’Brien depicts James Joyce as a man hammered by Church, State and family, yet from such adversities he wrote works ‘to bestir the hearts of men and angels’.
 
The journey begins with Joyce the arrogant youth, his lofty courtship of Nora Barnacle, their hectic sexuality, children, wanderings, debt and profligacy, and Joyce’s obsession with the city of Dublin, which he would re-render through his words.
 
Nor does Edna O’Brien spare us the anger and isolation of Joyce’s later years, when he felt that the world had turned its back on him, and she asks how could it be otherwise for a man who knew that conflict is the source of all creation.
