I think the book is inspirational, powerful, uplifting and raw in the most relatable way. His daughter Lucia was born later that year. Joyce returned to Dublin in mid with George, to visit his father and work on getting Dubliners published. He visited Nora's family in Galway and liked Nora's mother very much. He spent a month in Trieste before returning to Dublin, this time as a representative of some cinema owners and businessmen from Trieste.
With their backing he launched Ireland's first cinema, the Volta Cinematograph , which was well-received, but fell apart after Joyce left. He returned to Trieste in January with another sister, Eileen, in tow. Joyce returned to Dublin again briefly in mid during his years-long fight with Dublin publisher George Roberts over the publication of Dubliners. His trip was once again fruitless, and on his return he wrote the poem "Gas from a Burner", an invective against Roberts. After this trip, he never again came closer to Dublin than London, despite many pleas from his father and invitations from his fellow Irish writer William Butler Yeats.
They met in and became lasting friends and mutual critics. Schmitz was a Catholic of Jewish origin and became a primary model for Leopold Bloom; most of the details about the Jewish faith in Ulysses came from Schmitz's responses to queries from Joyce. Joyce concocted a number of money-making schemes during this period, including an attempt to become a cinema magnate in Dublin.
He frequently discussed but ultimately abandoned a plan to import Irish tweed to Trieste. Correspondence relating to that venture with the Irish Woollen Mills were for a long time displayed in the windows of their premises in Dublin. Joyce's skill at borrowing money saved him from indigence.
What income he had came partially from his position at the Berlitz school and partially from teaching private students. Two influential private students, Baron Ambrogio Ralli and Count Francesco Sordina, petitioned officials for an exit permit for the Joyces, who in turn agreed not to take any action against the emperor of Austria-Hungary during the war. During this period Joyce took an active interest in socialism.
Watson agree that Joyce's interest in socialism and pacifistic anarchism continued for much of his life, and that both the form and content of Joyce's work reflect a sympathy for democratic and socialist ideas.

Joyce set himself to finishing Ulysses in Paris, delighted to find that he was gradually gaining fame as an avant-garde writer. A further grant from Harriet Shaw Weaver meant he could devote himself full-time to writing again, as well as consort with other literary figures in the city. During this time, Joyce's eyes began to give him more and more problems and he often wore an eyepatch. He was treated by Louis Borsch in Paris, undergoing nine operations before Borsch's death in Lucia was analysed by Carl Jung at the time, who after reading Ulysses is said to have concluded that her father had schizophrenia.
Were it not for their support along with Harriet Shaw Weaver's constant financial support , there is a good possibility that his books might never have been finished or published. In their literary magazine transition , the Jolases published serially various sections of Finnegans Wake under the title Work in Progress. Joyce used his contacts to help some sixteen Jews escape Nazi persecution.
The issue of Joyce's relationship with religion is somewhat controversial. Early in life, he lapsed from Catholicism, according to first-hand testimonies coming from himself, his brother Stanislaus Joyce, and his wife:.
My mind rejects the whole present social order and Christianity—home, the recognised virtues, classes of life and religious doctrines. Six years ago I left the Catholic church, hating it most fervently. I found it impossible for me to remain in it on account of the impulses of my nature.
I made secret war upon it when I was a student and declined to accept the positions it offered me.
By doing this I made myself a beggar but I retained my pride. Now I make open war upon it by what I write and say and do.
When the arrangements for Joyce's burial were being made, a Catholic priest offered a religious service, which Joyce's wife, Nora, declined, saying, "I couldn't do that to him. Leonard Strong , William T. Noon, Robert Boyle and others have argued that Joyce, later in life, reconciled with the faith he rejected earlier in life and that his parting with the faith was succeeded by a not so obvious reunion, and that Ulysses and Finnegans Wake are essentially Catholic expressions. Eliot believed they saw between the lines of Joyce's work the outlook of a serious Christian and that beneath the veneer of the work lies a remnant of Catholic belief and attitude.
Umberto Eco compares Joyce to the ancient episcopi vagantes wandering bishops in the Middle Ages. They left a discipline, not a cultural heritage or a way of thinking. Like them, the writer retains the sense of blasphemy held as a liturgical ritual. Some critics and biographers have opined along the lines of Andrew Gibson : "The modern James Joyce may have vigorously resisted the oppressive power of Catholic tradition. But there was another Joyce who asserted his allegiance to that tradition, and never left it, or wanted to leave it, behind him. He acknowledged the debt he owed to his early Jesuit training.
Joyce told the sculptor August Suter , that from his Jesuit education, he had 'learnt to arrange things in such a way that they become easy to survey and to judge.
