James Joyce articles on TMO

James Joyce is often consigned to a crusty corner of the literary world – declared in one breath to be both a genius and utterly unreadable; (overly) revered by academics – something being satirised as far back as the 1960s by writers like Patrick Kavanagh and Flann O’Brien – but scarcely read. Here at TMO, though, through articles with Joycean scholars, and interviews with contemporary writers, we’re convinced that Joyce is one of those writers whose work remains fresh, relevant and inspiring. Here we’ve a collection of these articles -tagged ‘James Joyce’ for various reasons, be it an article that focusses in particular on Joyce (like our interviews with Joycean Scholars David Norris or John McCourt), or a mention in one of our interviews (for example our interview with Nadeem Aslam). We hope that it helps broaden and enrich your appreciation of this fine Irish writer.
