Cet ouvrage est un recueil de 15 nouvelles de James Joyce (1914), tableau de la misère matérielle et spirituelle des petites gens de Dublin.
Ce n'est pas la ville qui en est le personnage principal et chaque nouvelle est isolée ; c'est un portrait, ou un groupe, ce sont des individualités bien marquées que l'auteur se plaît à faire vivre.
"Gens de Dublin", qui constitue une excellente introduction à l'œuvre de James Joyce, est, par lui-­même, un des livres les plus importants de la littérature d'imagination en langue anglaise publiés depuis 1900.

Extrait :
"Le locataire qui nous avait précédés, un prêtre, était mort dans le salon du fond. Il flottait un air de moisi dans toutes les pièces fermées depuis longtemps, et la chambre de débarras, derrière la cuisine, était jonchée de vieilles paperasses inutiles. Je découvris dans le tas quelques livres brochés aux pages humides et repliées : L’Abbé de Walter Scott, Le Dévot Communiant et les Mémoires de Vidocq. Ce dernier était . . .

Cura e traduzione di Marina Emo Capodilista Introduzione di Mario Praz Edizione integrale Il Ritratto dell’artista da giovane è la storia di una mente creativa: un’educazione intellettuale, insomma, piuttosto che sentimentale. Attingendo ampiamente alla propria biografia, Joyce racconta, in uno stile mirabile per inventiva e fantasia, la formazione della personalità del giovane protagonista Stephen Dedalus, il suo alter ego, dall’infanzia nel collegio gesuita alla scoperta della vocazione per l’Arte. Sembra proprio che parli Joyce per bocca di Dedalus, quando dice: «Tenterò di esprimere me stesso in qualche modo di vita o di arte, quanto più potrò liberamente e integralmente, adoperando per difendermi le sole armi che mi concedo di usare: il silenzio, l’esilio e l’astuzia». Un capolavoro della letteratura, dall’autore dell’Ulisse. «L’anima dapprima nasce», dise ambiguamente, «in quei momenti di cui ti ho parlato. Ha una nascita lenta e oscura, più misteriosa della nascita del . . .

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Dead (A Novella)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Considered as one of the greatest short stories in the Western Canon, James Joyce's complex narrative "The Dead", explores the intricate issues of identity and power through the lens of language, patriarchy, and imperialism. These issues are directly tied to the longstanding political turmoil of his native Ireland and the social questions of his day. Joyce’s story reveals that we often achieve what we tried to avoid by pretending to be what we are not. At 15,­672 words The Dead is often considered a novella and the best of Joyce's shorter works. James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-­garde of the early 20th century.

Ulysses is a novel by the Irish author James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, in Paris. One of the most important works of Modernist literature, it has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking.­"

Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyce's first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle). The title alludes to Odysseus (Latinised into Ulysses), the hero of Homer's Odyssey, and establishes a series of parallels between characters and events in Homer's poem and Joyce's novel (e.­g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen . . .

The author's biography is included in this version.

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.

The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-­understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence, and maturity.

This carefully crafted ebook: "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - The Original Book Edition of 1916" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. A novel written in Joyce's characteristic free indirect speech style, A Portrait is a major example of the Künstlerroman (an artist's Bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-­philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions with which he has been raised. He finally leaves for abroad to pursue his ambitions as an artist. The work is an early example of some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later be represented in a more developed manner by Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The novel, which has had a "huge influence on novelists across the world", was ranked by Modern Library as the third greatest English-­language novel of the 20th century.
