Do you think James Joyce was an "Exile"?

I go back and forth on this...and currently writing my senior thesis on Joyce's exile as essentially a revolutionary act, qualifying him as an exile in a relatively traditional sense. But that definitely becomes more difficult to justify in relation to the mass refugee populations that typify "exile" these least as it's noted by Said and Arendt. It seems to me that Joyce represented a condition of exile that was a departure from the intellectual exile of the 19th-century, however, viewing it this way is ethically problematic for us. So I'm curious as to what you think about him.
