The term "West Britain" for Ireland was worn proudly by those loyal to the English Crown, but for patriotic Irishmen it was a slight. In Ulysses and Dubliners, Joyce presents the men of Dublin as reluctant but impotent citizens of West Britain rather than of Ireland. Ulysses is widely commemorated now on Bloomsday as a celebration of Joyce's native city. Ulysses in West Britain insists that Ulysses is not a salute to Joyce's Dublin or its citizens, nor a cry de profundis for its release from colonial oppression. Joyce's satire on Dublin and Dubliners is directed not at the oppressor but at his own fellow citizens, those he called sarcastically the "gratefully oppressed." When life in the Dublin of Ulysses isn't shabbily unheroic, it is an undivine comedy, laced with mordant Swiftian humor. Even the lives and deaths of Irish patriots are made objects of derision rather than respect. Joyce was wrong that there are no heroes and there is no heroism in Dublin or in ancient Greece. He was simply unable to see it. Though Joyce's work is fashionably presented as "post-colonial" in much recent criticism, post-colonial in any positive sense it is not. In Ulysses the heroic tale of The Odyssey is inverted to an anti-epic. Odysseus subverted an enemy city with a group of valiant men and a horse made of wood; Joyce does it to his hometown alone and unheroically with a devilishly ingenious explosive made from paper and print. Among other things, this book explores some ways in which he manages it. Michael Murphy is Professor Emeritus at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York.

James Joyce’s preoccupation with space—be it urban, geographic, stellar, geometrical or optical—is a central and idiosyncratic feature of his work. In Making Space in the Works of James Joyce, some of the most esteemed scholars in Joyce studies have come together to evaluate the perception and mental construction of space, as it is evoked through Joyce’s writing. The aim is to bring together several recent trends of literary research and criticism to bear on the notion of space in its most concrete sense. The essays move dialectically out of an immediate focus on the phenomenological and intra-psychic, into broader and wider meditations on the social, urban and collective. As Joyce’s formal experiments appear the response to the difficulty of enunciating truly the experience of lived space, this eventually leads us to textual and linguistic space. The final contribution evokes the space with which Joyce worked daily, that of his manuscripts—or what he called "paperspace." With essays addressing all of Joyce's major works, this volume is a critical contribution to our understanding of modernism, as well as of the relationship between space, language, and literature.

James Joyce (1882-1941) was born in Rathgar, a Dublin suburb. His childhood was spent in different addresses scattered across the city, as his father's wealth declined. In 1904 he left Ireland and spent the rest of his life living in Europe with only a few short visits back. In this way, Joyce's Dublin is a place created from memories. Though it permeates all of his writing, it remains in some way an unreal city, which the author accessed through a process of recollection and imagination. Dublin in the year 2000 is a changing place and Virginie Amant's photography reveals the city which has survived into the 21st century, complemented by 19th century etchings, illustrations and photographs showing views familiar to Joyce

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader understand Joyce's use of textures, dialect, and symbols.Each of the beautifully written short stories in this collection precisely details a brief scene in the life of a resident of Dublin at the turn of the 20th century. Although the characters do not know each other, their experiences unfold along the same streets and often overlap thematically. Their tragedies mirror that of Ireland, a country struggling for political identity and held back, in Joyce's view, by rigid religious ideas and adherence to tradition.Joyce's great skill at dialect offers a sense of the city's complex social structure, while themes of isolation, emotional paralysis, violence, regret, and death run throughout the collection and link all of the stories. Chronologically, too, the stories appear to progress; portrayals of youthful confusion and disillusionment in the opening story, "The Sisters," become the haunting midlife meditations of "The Dead." Like his masterpieces Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake, James Joyce's Dubliners displays consummate control of nuances, emotions, and images.
