Overview

Centennial Edition

Perhaps the greatest short story collection in the English language, James Joyce’s Dubliners is both a vivid and unflinching portrait of “dear dirty Dublin” at the turn of the twentieth century and a moral history of a nation and a people whose “golden age” has passed. His richly drawn characters—at once intensely Irish and utterly universal—may forever haunt the reader. In mesmerizing writing that evokes rich imagery, Joyce delves into the heart of the city of his birth, capturing the cadences of Dubliners’ speech in remarkably realistic portrayals of their inner lives. This magnificent collection of fifteen stories reveals Joyce at his most accessible and perhaps most profound.

With an Introduction by Edna O’Brien and an Afterword by Malachy McCourt
