Introduction and Notes by Laurence Davies, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire. Living overseas but writing, always, about his native city, Joyce made Dublin unforgettable. The stories in Dubliners show us truants, seducers, gossips, rally-drivers, generous hostesses, corrupt politicians, failing priests, amateur theologians, struggling musicians, moony adolescents, victims of domestic brutishness, sentimental aunts and poets, patriots earnest or cynical, and people striving to get by. In every sense an international figure, Joyce was faithful to his own country by seeing it unflinchingly and challenging every precedent and piety in Irish literature.

Dubliners is a landmark in modern literature, and one of the twentieth century's finest collections of short stories. In its remarkable portrait of a city and its people, it dramatises ordinary life in the modern world. Together, the stories form one interwoven tapestry which provides a rich and subtle picture of the struggles of men and women to rise above the constraints of their everyday lives.
