Hi,
the things being compared here are, life of burrughs and joyce, so AS is correct here..
left and chose should be used to talk of actions of Joyce...
Joyce lived a generation earlier to Burroughs, so this aspect too should come out clearly..
ONLY C is left

Though I was confused between B and C, I finally went for B. can you explain on what basis B was ruled out like in B is the modifier "leaving Ireland and choosing" correct or no?
