An Irish novelist, James Joyce, has been recognized as one of the most creative writers who had a big impact on several parts of Irish society and the rest of the world, especially on how we know about literature and cinema. He has been considered as a great writer due to his complexity of the use of his language combined with different areas of knowledge, making his pieces of writing unique and remarkable. Not only that he is well-known for the creation of the unique masterpieces of writing, but his expert in film industry has also made him stand out among all other experts in the same area. James Joyce influenced literature in a way that inspires other authors to write more about his topics. His excellence in choosing such interesting topics that are different from other novelists, therefore, encourages many other authors to follow his ideas, which in turn affects how we think of literature these days. Another area that makes James Joyce a great writer is an insertion of a variety of knowledge into his writing. According to, James Joyce was able to extend his composition by integrating it with a wide variety of his intellectualism, such as philosophy, theology and foreign languages. As a result of these integrations, English literature had become what it is called “modern”, spreading its copies to other countries not only in English speaking countries. The most well-know novel written by James Joyce was Ulysses. It is popular because he chose to write ordinary events, such as a day in his life, and make those ordinary events become a masterpiece. In Ulysses, James Joyce also described about self-consciousness, including defecation and masturbation (Lewis). His book was banned in the United States for several years ever since it had been firstly published in the state of Ireland. The main reason of restriction was the sexual part composed in his book, which was labeled as an inappropriate material in the United States back then. However, later on, his book was finally published in the United States

without any restriction, showing its true definition of freedom of expression in which American society has believed in. The publishing of his book in the United States really affected American society, pointing out the importance of freeing media and letting media takers decide what information they chose to consume. Therefore, Ulysses did not only illustrate many examples of technique in his writing, but did it also change American society to truly understand the significance of freedom. Another area that James Joyce influenced mostly in Irish society was film industry. According to the Irish Times, James Joyce has been said to be the first person who brought cinema to the state of Ireland. Killeen also mentioned in the Irish Times that “t he influence of the cinema on Joyce; another, equally interesting one, is the influence of Joyce on the cinema”. It seems that James Joyce was not only the first person who opened and managed the first cinema, the Volta, in Dublin, Ireland, but the use of cinematic technique in Ulysses attracted many moviemakers. Such cinematic techniques include a mix of one scene and another, a mix of several different pieces of information to create a single piece and a connection between fantasy and reality. Because of those reasons mentioned above, Ulysses has been adapted to many versions of cinema. All in all, James Joyce has changed the way we think about literature and film due to several reasons. However, the biggest main reason why we should remember his name is the fact that he composed his novel with ability to combine it with his excellence in philosophy, theology and foreign languages, which in turn makes it easier to spread his messages to his readers and attracts many readers to continue from what he has done. Moreover, he affected film industry by opening the first cinema in Ireland

Even more, the hook expounds on his great impact in the Irish society as well as the world at large. The hook connects to the thesis statement which focuses on James Joyce writing and expertise, (Cassiani & Konopacki, 2012). The most challenging part of completing this essay was coming up with a hook that attracts the attention of the reader; to ensure that he gets interested in my paper. Another challenge was relating or connecting the hook to the thesis statement to ensure that the essay is clear and concise. Therefore, coming up with a clear thesis statement was also a challenge; making it hard to organize and structure ideas, (Grabe & Kaplan, 2014). Another challenge that I

2 EXERCISES was faced with was ensuring that the essay had detailed information without including unnecessary information to make the essay coherent and easy to understand. One of the most significant sources that I used to write the essay is Modernism Research written by Lewis. The source focuses on James Joyce work and writing and offers detailed information on why James Joyce stands out from the other writers. Further, the source focuses on the Ulysses novel and provides more insight on James Joyce writing. The source was recent and therefore was up to date and had no bias, thus making it more reliable and valid, (Wyrick, 2013). Notably, the source enabled me to focus on James Joyce writing and point out his effectiveness and contribution in writing. Further, another source which was significant for my essay was work written by Killeen. Killeen work focused on James Joyce contribution to the film industry. According to Killeen, James Joyce had much influence on the cinema and the use of cinematic techniques in his novel Ulysses attracted a lot of moviemakers. This source helped me understand the role and influence of James Joyce in the film industry, and made it easy to identify and point out Joyce contribution to the film industry. Notably, the source was valid as it reflects more on James Joyce influence in the cinema and was free from bias In my next essay I intend to draft the essay thesis statement before writing the essay’s body, to ensure that I am in a position to organize and structure the ideas coherently. The conclusion affirms the thesis statement and points out how James Joyce writing has impacted the current literature and the film industry.
