Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Among the most read and studied stories in English literature, these 15 tales offer vivid, tightly focused observations of the lives of Dublin’s poorer classes. At least one, "The Dead," is considered a masterpiece of the form. Taken together, the stories offer an excellent introduction to the work of one of the 20th century’s most influential novelists. They are reprinted here, complete and unabridged, from a standard edition.

Book News Annotation:

**** In BCL3. This very legible and complete reprint of the Grant Richards edition of 1914 is priced at so low a price that stores will resent selling it. Salute to Dover.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In these masterful stories, steeped in realism, Joyce creates an exacting portrait of his native city, showing how it reflects the general decline of Irish culture and civilization. Joyce compels attention by the power of its unique vision of the world, its controlling sense of the truths of human experience.

About the Author

Sooner or later, most undergraduates encounter him, and some scholars devote their careers to his exuberantly eloquent prose. James Joyce (1882-1941) led the vanguard of 20th-century fiction, and his experimental use of language and stream-of-consciousness technique continue to captivate, intrigue, and influence modern readers and writers.
