Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Manby James Joyce, Don Gifford
Joyce was born near Dublin in 1882 and
These 15 stories, Joyce's first published prose, are complete in themselves, even though they got further development in ULYSSES. The author called them "a series of chapters in the moral history of his community." They bear the unmistakable stamp of Joyce's genius and are an augury of the masterworks which were to follow.
Joyce was born near Dublin in 1882 and educated in Jesuit schools in Ireland. Dissatisfied with the intellectual atmosphere, he left in 1902 and spent most of the remainder of his life abroad.
ULYSSES, his best-known work, was published in 1922. When he died 19 years later, his pioneering literary efforts were still the subject of intense debate, as they are to this day. No author could ask for more.
