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.
