Produktbeschreibung
James Joyce's Dubliners is an enthralling collection of modernist short stories which create a vivid picture of the day-to-day experience of Dublin life. This Penguin Classics edition includes notes and an introduction by Terence Brown. Joyce's first major work, written when he was only twenty-five, brought his city to the world for the first time. His stories are rooted in the rich detail of Dublin life, portraying ordinary, often defeated lives with unflinching realism. From 'The Sisters', a vivid portrait of childhood faith and guilt, to 'Araby', a timeless evocation of the inexplicable yearnings of adolescence, to 'The Dead', in which Gabriel Conroy is gradually brought to a painful epiphany regarding the nature of his existence, Joyce draws a realistic and memorable cast of Dubliners together in an powerful exploration of overarching themes. Writing of social decline, sexual desire and exploitation, corruption and personal failure, he creates a brilliantly compelling, unique vision of the world and of human experience. James Joyce (1882-1941), the eldest of ten children, was born in Dublin, but exiled himself to Paris at twenty as a rebellion against his upbringing. He only returned to Ireland briefly from the continent but Dublin was at heart of his greatest works, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. He lived in poverty until the last ten years of his life and was plagued by near blindness and the grief of his daughter's mental illness. If you enjoyed Dubliners, you might like Joyce's Ulysses, also available in Penguin Modern Classics. 'Joyce redeems his Dubliners, assures their identity, and makes their social existence appear permanent and immortal, like the streets they walk' Tom Paulin 'Joyce's early short stories remain undimmed in their brilliance' Sunday Times

Autorenporträt
James Joyce wurde am 2. Februar 1882 in Dublin geboren, wo er in schwierigen und ärmlichen Familienverhältnissen aufwuchs. Joyce studierte am University College von Dublin moderne Sprachen, u.a. Englisch, Französisch und Italienisch. 1902 ging er nach Paris, um ein Medizinstudium zu beginnen. Er wandte sich dort aber dem Schreiben zu und führte einen ausschweifenden Lebensstil. 1903 kehrte er nach Dublin zurück, konnte dort jedoch nicht Fuß fassen. Mit seiner Geliebten und späteren Ehefrau Nora Barnacle siedelte er 1904 auf den Kontinent über und lebte hauptsächlich in Triest. 1914 erschien Joyces erste Kurzgeschichtensammlung. Nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges zog er mit seiner Familie nach Zürich. 1920 zog Joyce auf Einladung seines Freundes Ezra Pound nach Paris, wo er bis zu Frankreichs Besetzung im Zweiten Weltkrieg lebte. James Joyce starb am 13. Januar 1941 in Zürich.
