James Stephens (9 February 1882–26 December 1950) was an Irish novelist and poet.
James Stephens produced many retellings of Irish myths and fairy tales. His retellings are marked by a rare combination of humor and lyricism (Deirdre, and Irish Fairy Tales are often especially praised). He also wrote several original novels (Crock of Gold, Etched in Moonlight, Demi-Gods) based loosely on Irish fairy tales. “Crock of Gold,” in particular, achieved enduring popularity and was reprinted frequently throughout the author’s lifetime.
Stephens began his career as a poet with the tutelage of “Æ” (George William Russell). His first book of poems, “Insurrections,” was published during 1909. His last book, “Kings and the Moon” (1938), was also a volume of verse.
During the 1930s, Stephens had some acquaintance with James Joyce, who found that they shared a birth year (and, Joyce mistakenly believed, a birthday). Joyce, who was concerned with his ability to finish what later became Finnegans Wake, proposed that Stephens assist him, with the authorship credited to JJ & S (James Joyce & Stephens, also a pun for the popular Irish whiskey made by John Jameson & Sons). The plan, however, was never implemented, as Joyce was able to complete the work on his own.
During the last decade of his life, Stephens found a new audience through a series of broadcasts on the BBC. (Wikipedia)
