Joyce's writing style was very unique, first of all, so he stood apart from his comtemporaries.  The fragmented style he wrote Potrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses two of his famous novels, for example, is like nothing else of this time period. Joyce frequently used stream-of-consiousness in his writing, as well as interior monologue, which wasn't used with any notability in previous eras.
