James Joyce (/ʤeɪmz ʤɔɪs/; 1882-1941) was an Irish novelist, short story writer, poet, literary critic - and English teacher.[1]

Joyce taught English as a foreign language in Pola and Trieste (then both in Austria) from 1904-1914, and Zurich in Switzerland from 1914-1920. He thereafter lived in Paris from 1920-1940, fleeing to Switzerland in 1940 where he died the year later.

Joyce’s short story collection Dubliners[2] is available as Oxford Bookworms level 6[3]
