    One underlying current in Joyce's work is his fascination with Irish-Catholic culture, as well with literature and the history of literature itself. Much of his middle and later works are based on Greek mytholohgy, and contain almost an infinite amount of allusions to many many works from the Western Canon.

    There is of course a dichodemy splitting his works in half; the early ones with a mastery in minimalistic subtle prose, and the middle and later ones with an ingenious revolutionary style and story-telling, which flipped the literary world on its head.
