James Joyce (1882-1941) is considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. His work includes the semi-autobiographical" A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man," the landmark work of modernist fiction" Ulysses," and its successor "Finnegan's Wake."Review :
"In "Dubliners", Joyce's first attempt to register in language and fictive form the protean complexities of the 'reality of experience, ' he learns the paradoxical lesson that only through the most rigorous economy, only by concentrating on the minutest of particulars, can he have any hope of engaging with the immensity of the world."-from the Introduction
"Joyce renews our apprehension of reality, strengthens our sympathy with our fellow creatures, and leaves us in awe before the mystery of created things." -"Atlantic Monthly "
"It is in the prose of "Dubliners" that we first hear the authentic rhythms of Joyce the poet..."Dubliners" is, in a very real sense, the foundation of Joyce's art. In shaping its stories, he developed that mastery of naturalistic detail and symbolic design which is the hallmark of his mature fiction." -Robert Scholes and A. Walton Litz, authors of "Dubliners: Text and Criticism"
With an Introduction by John Kelly
