Happy Birthday, James Joyce

James Joyce (and James Joyce, and James Joyce). Ulysses is ranked by Modern Library as the number one book of the 20th Century.

By Sheila Langan, Deputy Editor

On February 2, 1882, James Augustine Aloysius Joyce, author of Dubliners, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, was born in Rathgar, Dublin to John Stanislaus Joyce and Mary Jane Murray. Today marks the 130th anniversary of his birth.

In celebration, check out this excellently animated video of Joyce (or his bust in St. Stephens Green) set to a recording of him reading from Finnegans Wake. It’s a notoriously daunting tome, but when read aloud – especially by the author himself – it all makes a beautiful sort of sense.



Listen here to Fionnula Flanagan reading the short story “Counterparts” from Joyce’s Dubliners:
