James Joyce (1882-1941)

James Joyce was born in Dublin but spent most of his adult life in Europe. He used Dublin as the setting for all of his major works including Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses. Joyce claimed that if Dublin were ever destroyed, it could be recreated from the pages of Ulysses. The Irish branded the book pornographic and banned it until the 1960s.
