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 encyclopedia.com, 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
