James Joyce faleceu em Zurique há 70 anos. Está enterrado no Cemitério de Fluntern, naquela cidade, junto à sua mulher e ao seu filho Giorgio.

O romancista e poeta irlandês, James Augustine Aloysius Joyce, considerado um dos maiores autores do século XX, faleceu em Zurique, em 13 de Janeiro de 1941.
Embora James Joyce tenha vivido fora do seu país a maior parte da vida adulta, a sua obra reflecte bem as suas origens. Apesar de inúmeras dificuldades familiares, Joyce foi para Paris, em 1902, para estudar medicina. No ano seguinte, porém, voltou à Irlanda em virtude de doença grave de sua mãe.
Escreveu e exerceu a profissão de jornalista, deambulando depois um pouco pela Europa.
A publicação de Ulisses, romance que se desenrola num único dia, foi uma obra fundamental na história do modernismo da literatura de língua inglesa, sendo considerado como um dos melhores 100 livros do século.
O livro explora diversos aspectos da vida de Dublin, sobretudo a sua degradação e monotonia. Além disso, o livro é também um estudo minucioso sobre a cidade. Joyce costumava afirmar que «se Dublin fosse destruída por alguma catástrofe, poderia bem ser reconstruída tijolo a tijolo, usando como modelo a sua obra».
Começou cedo a padecer dos olhos, sendo operado por várias vezes na capital francesa. Na década de 30, a visão degradou-se ainda mais e passou a necessitar da ajuda de alguns jovens admiradores, entre eles Samuel Beckett, que escreviam o que ele ditava.
Com a erupção da Segunda Guerra Mundial, Joyce teve de deixar Paris e por fim voltou a Zurique, quase cego. No começo de 1941, morreria de úlcera duodenal perfurada e peritonite generalizada, durante uma operação cirúrgica.
A obra de Joyce foi objecto de estudos de quase todos os géneros, tendo tido influência em escritores tão diferentes como Samuel Beckett, Jorge Luís Borges, Salman Rushdie, William Burroughs e muitos outros.

Caso ainda não tenham lido nada do James Joyce, não vos aconselho a começar pelo Ulisses. Comecem sim, pelo volume de quinze contos Dublinenses/Gente de Dublin. O conto mais conhecido chama-se The Dead.


  1. Pois, tentei ler Ulisses há muitos anos, mas não estava a perceber patavina. Aliás, muito mais tarde disseram-me que existiam péssimas traduções do livro, que era possível que tivesse apanhado uma delas...

    Apesar disso, nunca mais tive curiosidade em voltar a ler nada dele. Provavelmente, injustamente! ;)


  2. Infelizmente nunca nada li de James Joyce e obrigado pelo conselho/recomendação.

  3. Há qum não goste de "Ulisses". Para mim foi um livro marcante e ainda há ouco tempo o reli.

  4. Pensei que Joyce repousava no Pére Lachaise.
    Sempre a aprender!

  5. Um destes dias espero conseguir terminar de ler o Ulisses...

    Throughout the awesome design of things you receive a B+ just for
    effort and hard work. Exactly

    where you confused us was in your details. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.
    . And it couldn't be

    much more correct in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you what

    did give good results. Your authoring

    is certainly very

    powerful which is possibly the reason why

    I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of

    doing that. Second, although I can easily see the jumps in reason you make, I am not

    necessarily certain of exactly how you seem to

    unite your ideas which inturn make

    your final result. For the moment I shall subscribe to your position but wish in the near future

    you actually link your facts much better.

    lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you

    I wanted to write you this little bit of observation to
    give many thanks the moment again with the fantastic advice

    you've documented at this time. This has been simply incredibly generous of people like you to supply unhampered exactly what some people might have distributed for an e-book to earn some profit for

    their own end, especially considering the

    fact that you might have

    tried it in case you desired. These guidelines

    also acted to be a fantastic way to understand that other people online have the same passion much like my personal own to learn

    significantly more in

    terms of this problem.

    I'm sure there are lots of more pleasurable moments in the future for people who scan your website.
