James Joyce was the eldest of 10 children, and his father did not earn a stable living.
Joyce began living with Nora Barnacle in and married her in Nora was the model for the character Molly Bloom in Ulysses. They had two children: a son, Giorgio, born in , and a daughter, Lucia, born in Joyce did not return to Clongowes in ; instead he stayed at home for the next two years and tried to educate himself, asking his mother to check his work.
In April he and his brother Stanislaus were admitted, without fees, to Belvedere College, a Jesuit grammar school in Dublin. Joyce did well there academically and was twice elected president of the Marian Society, a position virtually that of head boy. He left, however, under a cloud, as it was thought correctly that he had lost his Roman Catholic faith. He entered University College, Dublin, which was then staffed by Jesuit priests.
This early success confirmed Joyce in his resolution to become a writer and persuaded his family, friends, and teachers that the resolution was justified. Never did he relax his efforts to master the art of writing. Recalled home in April because his mother was dying, he tried various occupations, including teaching, and lived at various addresses, including the Martello Tower at Sandycove, which later became a museum.

They left Dublin together in October Joyce obtained a position in the Berlitz School at Pola in Austria-Hungary now Pula, Croatia , working in his spare time at his novel and short stories.

In he visited Ireland twice to try to publish Dubliners and set up a chain of Irish cinemas. Another old friend proved this to be a lie.
Early travels and works
Joyce always felt that he had been betrayed, however, and the theme of betrayal runs through much of his later writings.
