Narrative con/texts in Dubliners by Bernard Benstock( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The harvest of a long and deep acquaintance with Joyce's fifteen enigmatic stories of Dublin life, Narrative Con/Texts in "Dubliners" creatively widens the definition of "context" to include networks of theme and symbol.

There are several innovative approaches here (for example, the thorough inspection of the economic conditions of Joyce's Dublin, down to the halfpenny) as well as new twists on established ideas.

His is an old ambition (for full coverage) in a new, upbeat format
