Best Answer

At around one o'clock in the morning on January 13th, James Joyce said "Does nobody understand?" before relapsing into a coma after surgery on a perforated duodenal ulcer. His wife, Nora, and his son, George, were summoned by the doctor a hour later but they arrived too late. Joyce died at 2:15 am on January 13th before his wife and son could make it to his bedside.
