A collection of fifteen stories, evoking the voices and lives that teem in Joyce's vision of his native city
EDITED BY HANS WALTER GABLER WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY DR SCARLETT BARON AND JOHN BANVILLE
In this powerfully influential series of short stories, James Joyce captures uneasy souls, shabby lives and innocent minds in the dark streets and homes of his native city. In doing so, he conjures uncertainties and desires, illumines moments of joy and sorrow otherwise lost in private memory, and pierces the many mysteries at the heart of things.
“Joyce's stories remain undimmed in their brilliance”
“Dubliners is interested in all of us, rich and poor, old and young, men and women. It's filled with humour and love, pain and loss. Above all, it rings out with a love of these streets, of the voices of the people who inhabit them”
“Truly exhilarating...a vivid, detailed and breathtaking portrait of a city and its citizens”
