Description:
That James Joyce's ''The Dead'' forms an extraordinary conclusion to his collection Dubliners , there can be no doubt. But as many have pointed out, ''The Dead'' may equally well be read as a novella--arguably, one of the finest novellas ever written. ''The Dead,'' a ''story of public life,'' as Joyce categorised it, was written more than a year after Joyce had finished the other stories in the collection, and was meant to redress what he felt was their ''unnecessary harsh[ness].'' Set on the feast of the epiphany, it is a haunting tale of connection and of alienation, reflecting, in the words of Stanislaus Joyce (James's brother and confidant), ''the nostalgic love of a rejected exile.'' The present volume highlights ''The Dead'' for readers who wish to focus on that great work in a concise volume--and for university courses in which it is not possible to cover all of Dubliners . But it also gives a strong sense of how that story is part of a larger whole.
One story from each of the other sections of Dubliners has been included, and a wide range of background materials is included as well, providing a vivid sense of the literary and historical context out of which the work emerged.
