A vivid portrait of Dublin life through a series of modernist short stories. Part of Alma Classics' Evergreens series, this edition is fully annotated and contains extra material.
Born in Dublin, James Joyce (1882-1941) spent most of his life abroad, living in Trieste, Paris and Zurich. His writings, however, mainly centre on Dublin - most famously Ulysses, Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. He pioneered and perfected avant-garde prose techniques that saw him rise to the rank of one of Europe's foremost Modernists.
His writing is not about something; it is that something itself. -- Samuel Beckett Its deep power abides in the inextricability of Joyce's masterly control of language and the breadth of his vision. -- Eimear McBride
