He was an Irish novelist, poet and literary critic and he is regarded as one of the most influential and important writers of the 20th Century. He was always known for experimenting use of language and exploring new literary methods.

He used methods such as interior monologue, symbolic parallels and puns, inverted words and allusions in the novels that he wrote, especially in one of his most famous books; Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. At the James Joyce Centre you can see the famous No. 7 Eccles Street from Ulysses.
