James Joyce was an Irish novelist, short story writer, and poet. He contributed to the modernist avant-garde(অগ্রসেনা, অগ্রদূত, পুরোধা ) and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th century.
Joyce is best known for Ulysses, (40তম বিসিএস প্রিলিমিনারি) a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer’s Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he utilized. Other well-known works are the short-story collection Dubliners, and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake (1939). His other writings include three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism and his published letters.
