Overview

James Joyce's Dubliners is one of the most studied collections of short stories in the world. Perplexing and innovative in technique, Joyce wanted Dubliners to be a 'chapter in the moral history of my country'.

This New Casebook brings together a range of different critical interpretations of Dubliners that demonstrate the complexity and fascination of Joyce's 'moral history'. It includes a variety of essays by a number of influential Joyce scholars and shows how contemporary literary theory has opened up the stories in exciting and revealing new ways. The essays show how Joyce interrogates the key issues of Irish history, gender relations, and the nature of literary interpretation itself, thereby encouraging the reader to return to Dubliners with a new set of questions to explore.
