A glimpse into the troubled life and times of the author of such works as "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man," "Finnegan's Wake," and "Ulysses."

Plot Synopsis:

"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "James Joyce," viewers learn how the Irish writer survived his impoverished roots and carved out an identity for himself in a family of ten children. Through his education at Jesuit institutions and his flirtation with newspaper reporting, Joyce went on to become a genius of poetry and prose. Though others experimented with time or character, Joyce did both with consistently fine results. In his writing he also engaged in wordplay, invented terms, incorporated foreign languages, and used stream-of-consciousness styles.
What may surprise some is that Joyce's works were roundly denounced as nonsensical and offensive by many in the prevailing intelligentsia of his day.
