From Longman's Cultural Edition series, this new edition ofDubliners, 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. 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 The first book by one of the twentieth centuryrs"s greatest writers,Dublinerscomprises 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. For anyone wishing to explore the complexities of James Joyce's writing.

James Joyce was born on February 2, 1882, in Dublin, Ireland, into a large Catholic family. Joyce was a very good pupil, studying poetics, languages, and philosophy at Clongowes Wood College, Belvedere College, and the Royal University in Dublin. Joyce taught school in Dalkey, Ireland, before marrying in 1904. Joyce lived in Zurich and Triest, teaching languages at Berlitz schools, and then settled in Paris in 1920 where he figured prominently in the Parisian literary scene, as witnessed by Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast. Joyce's collection of fine short stories, Dubliners, was published in 1914, to critical acclaim. Joyce's major works include A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, Finnegans Wake, and Stephen Hero. Ulysses, published in 1922, is considered one of the greatest English novels of the 20th century. The book simply chronicles one day in the fictional life of Leopold Bloom, but it introduces stream of consciousness as a literary method and broaches many subjects controversial to its day. As avant-garde as Ulysses was, Finnegans Wake is even more challenging to the reader as an important modernist work. Joyce died just two years after its publication, in 1941.
