The Story Behind June 16, 1904, the Day James Joyce Gave to Literature

Stuart Mitchner

O Nora! Nora! Nora! I am speaking now to the girl I loved, who had redbrown hair and sauntered over to me and took me so easily into her arms and made me a man.

James Joyce was on his way down Nassau Street (the one in Dublin, that is) when his eye was caught by “a tall young woman, auburn-haired, walking with a proud stride,” according to Richard Ellman’s James Joyce (1959). When Joyce spoke to Nora Barnacle, she “answered pertly enough to allow the conversation to continue.”
