- Stream of Consciousness- "a narrative device that attempts to give the written equivalent of the character's thought processes, either in a loose interior monologue, or in connection to his or her actions." This writing technique can be seen in many of Joyce's works such as A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake
- Kaleidoscopic writing- this describes his writing technique as a whole in Ulysses where each chapter employs its own literary style and parodies a certain plot from Homer's Odyssey. It also describes how each chapter is associated with a specific colour, art or science, and bodily organ.
- Literary allusions- the reference to historical people, places and things is used greatly throughout many of Joyce's works, however was pushed to the limit in Finnegans Wake.
