It's true, and the same has been true of painters since the Renaissance. One-man bands are few & far between & usually the mark of the unsuccessful (i.e. those lacking the reputational and literal capital to assemble a fuckin squad, RIP)
Joyce hisself seemed to be mere center in a network full of nodes, soliciting contributions like a dictionary editor, friends and foreign correspondents wiring in fragments, references, translations, scraps of text
Yes but it's funny because bourgeois Instagram culture flips a bitch if you don't give author credit, they're still in the plagiarism mentality, they can't conceive of an ethos outside of capital (altho many/most of them identify as leftists)The total obliteration of authorship when it comes to memes is fun.

LONDON, Feb 5 (Reuters) - An Australian computer scientist's claim to be the inventor of bitcoin is "a brazen lie", lawyers representing a Jack Dorsey-backed group told a London court on Monday as a legal battle over ownership of the cryptocurrency began.
Craig Wright says he is the author of a 2008 white paper, the foundational text of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, published in the name "Satoshi Nakamoto".
... COPA's lawyer Jonathan Hough said his claim was "a brazen lie, an elaborate false narrative supported by forgery on an industrial scale".
Hough said that "there are elements of Dr Wright's conduct that stray into farce", citing his alleged use of ChatGPT to produce forgeries.
