Introduction and Notes by Laurence Davies, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire.

Living overseas but writing, always, about his native city, Joyce made Dublin unforgettable. The stories in Dubliners show us truants, seducers, gossips, rally-drivers, generous hostesses, corrupt politicians, failing priests, amateur theologians, struggling musicians, moony adolescents, victims of domestic brutishness, sentimental aunts and poets, patriots earnest or cynical, and people striving to get by.

In every sense an international figure, Joyce was faithful to his own country by seeing it unflinchingly and challenging every precedent and piety in Irish literature.

“Grey days in Dublin.”

I came to this book having never read Joyce before and this time out only for the purposes of revision for exams. I know that many people regard this book extremely highly but I found it to be rather dull. The stories... More

“Betwixt and between”

A series of short stories, but not satisfying like a Guy de Maupassant. Apart from the last chapter, they are more observational of lives in Dublin than « stories ». Very little character development or purpose in the... More
