About This Item

London: Grant Richards, 1914. First Edition. Top and bottom of spine slightly chipped; bottom margin corner of the last text leaf very slightly trimmed, far from affecting any lettering. One of 1250 copies printed, of which only 746 were bound for the London edition. This book had an infamously difficult time in getting published; it was first contracted for by Richards in 1906, and then by Maunsel, neither of whom could overcome what would now be seen as trivial, even silly, objections to some of its content.

Synopsis

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences.
