Dubliners by James Joyce( Book )

30 editions published between 1916 and 1996 in English and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although James Joyce left Ireland as a young man and spent most of his adult life on the European continent, all his books have Ireland as their geographic center. When asked near the end of his life if he ever intended to return to Ireland, Joyce responded candidly, "Have I ever left it?" In the fifteen classic stories that comprise Dubliners, James Joyce seeks to explore the "significance of trivial things." While the stories can be regarded as separate and independent entities, they can also be considered as parts of a larger whole, reinforcing and illuminating each other, acting as pieces of a mosaic that captures moods from childhood, young adulthood, courtship, and married life, as well as the public life of church, state, and the arts. Included in the collection is The Dead," Joyce's most enduring and evocative piece of short fiction, together with the often anthologized Araby, Eveline, and A Painful Case. Complementing the edition are eight specially commissioned maps of Dublin that allow the reader to follow the characters in and around the city that Joyce deemed "the center of paralysis," and an introduction by renowned Joyce scholar Don Gifford. --Publisher

Poems and shorter writings : including Epiphanies, Giacomo Joyce, and 'A Portrait of the artist' by James Joyce( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important collection brings together in one volume all the poems published by James Joyce in his lifetime, most notably Chamber music and Pomes Penyeach. It also includes a large body of his satiric or humorous occasional verse, much of which is fugitive and little known to the general reader. In addition, the volume provides the text of the surviving prose Epiphanies, which help us to understand the formative stages of Joyce's art; Giacomo Joyce, the fascinating Trieste notebook that Joyce compiled while finishing A portrait of the artist and beginning Ulysses; and the 1904 essay "A Portrait of the Artist," in which he first explored the world of his autobiographical novel. Assembled by the late Richard Ellmann, the leading Joyce scholar of his generation and with critical introductions and full annotations - by Professor A. Walton Litz and Dr. John Whittier-Ferguson, the whole collection contains much that will be unfamiliar to the student and the general reader
