From Longman's Cultural Edition series, this new edition of Dubliners, edited by Sean Latham, recovers the cultural complexity of James Joyce's stories, locating them amid the tumultuous debates about politics, culture, and aesthetics that helped drive Joyce out of Ireland and into the world of his imagination.
The first book by one of the twentieth century's greatest writers, Dubliners comprises fifteen complexly interwoven stories that helped establish the literary revolution we now call modernism. These haunting tales illuminate the seemingly inconsequential events of everyday life, unsettling readers by opening up the subtle mysteries of selfhood, language and history.
Handsomely produced and affordably priced, the Longman Cultural Editions series presents classic works in provocative and illuminating contexts-cultural, critical, and literary. Each Cultural Edition consists of the complete texts of important literary works, reliably edited, headed by an inviting introduction, and supplemented by helpful annotations; a table of dates to track its composition, publication, and public reception in relation to biographical, cultural and historical events; and a guide for further inquiry and study.
