Description

No city is as closely connected to literature as Dublin. Whether visiting the famous Long Room of Trinity College Library, St. Patrick's Cathedral, or one of Dublin's many literary pubs, literary travelers have plenty to explore and discover in this compact and energetic city. "Bloom's Literary Guide to Dublin" provides everything a literature lover needs to know to enjoy the city. Its features include: an introduction by esteemed literary critic Harold Bloom; a detailed literary and cultural history of the city, describing its development from the time of the Gaelic-speaking Celts through its turbulent struggle to find a sense of self; a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the landmarks featured in Joyce's Ulysses; color illustrations of literary landmarks, historic and contemporary; a color map providing a general overview of the city; a "Places of Interest" section that lists the city's major literary sights - including museums, bookstores, theaters, and more - along with their locations and hours of operation; and a list of books to read and Web sites to consult before the trip.
