Prize for literature. Joyce, also born in Dublin, was educated at Ireland's leading
Jesuit ...

Ireland's Cultural Scene, 1800–1849 The debate surrounding the Act of Union
gave rise to a great outpouring of pamphlets, speeches, and poems injecting a

a theme that had exercised writers since at least Swift and Molyneux. Under the
influence of new trends in thought—conjoined under the term romanticism—in
