Although most of his adult life was spent abroad, Joyce's fictional universe centres on Dublin and is populated largely by characters who closely resemble family members, enemies, and friends from his time there. Ulysses
in particular is set with precision in the streets and alleyways of the city. Shortly after the publication of Ulysses
