(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) Though James Joyce began these stories of Dublin life in 1904 when he was twenty-two and completed them in 1907, their unconventional themes and language led to repeated rejections by publishers and delayed publication until 1914. In the century since, his story "The Dead" has come to be seen as one of the most powerful evocations of human loss and longing that the English language possesses; all the other stories in Dubliners are as beautifully turned and as greatly admired. They remind us once again that James Joyce was not only modernism's chief innovator but also one of its most intimate and poetic writers. In this edition the text has been revised in keeping with Joyce's wishes, and the original versions of "The Sisters," "Eveline," and "After the Race" have been made available in an appendix, along with Joyce's suppressed preface to the 1914 edition of Dubliners .

display_description James Joyce, one of the most studied and influential writers of the 20th century, submits a chronology of Dublin's poorer class in 15 intense stories paired up on parallel subjects: adolescent life, sporting life, artistic life, political life, religious life. The Dublin that Joyce portrays is a tarnished and squalid background against which he positions individual experiences subtly reawakening themes common to everyone. Even though the city fosters death and disease, these focused tales invigorate the possibility of a more precious day-to-day life which is most often seen as meaningless, empty, and repulsive. Human nature, in Joyce's observation, finds it difficult to deal with failure and incompetent to face fear or loss. The short story "The Dead" is regarded as a masterpiece of the form. Written almost a hundred years ago, these accounts leave an impression of timelessness in man's search for happiness and fulfillment.
