Item Description...
"A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners," by James Joyce, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics"
  • New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars
  • Biographies of the authors
  • Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events
  • Footnotes and endnotes
  • Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work
  • Comments by other famous authors
  • Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations
  • Bibliographies for further reading
  • Indices & Glossaries, when appropriate
  • All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Widely regarded as the greatest stylist of twentieth-century English literature, James Joyce deserves the term "revolutionary." His literary experiments in form and structure, language and content, signaled the modernist movement and continue to influence writers today. His two earliest, and perhaps most accessible, successes--"A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" and "Dubliners"--are here brought together in one volume. Both works reflect Joyce's lifelong love-hate relationship with Dublin and the Irish culture that formed him.
    In the semi-autobiographical "Portrait," young Stephen Dedalus yearns to be an artist, but first must struggle against the forces of church, school, and society, which fetter his imagination and stifle his soul. The book's inventive style is apparent from its opening pages, a record of an infant's impressions of the world around him--and one of the first examples of the "stream of consciousness" technique.
    Comprising fifteen stories, "Dubliners" presents a community of mesmerizing, humorous, and haunting characters--a group portrait. The interactions among them form one long meditation on the human condition, culminating with "The Dead," one of Joyce's most graceful compositions centering around a character's epiphany. A carefully woven tapestry of Dublin life at the turn of the last century, "Dubliners" realizes Joyce's ambition to give his countrymen "one good look at themselves." Kevin J. H. Dettmar is Professor of English and Cultural Studies at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He is the author or editor of a half-dozen books on James Joyce, modernist literature, and rock music. He is currently finishing a term as President of the Modernist Studies Association.

    More About James Joyce & Kevin J. H. Dettmar

    Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.

    Reviews - What do our customers think?
    Once again disapointed by a Classic  Jul 1, 2008
    Unfortunately I was at a severe loss to begin to understand James Joyce's writings. I found the style of writing similar to Charles Dickens, but without the story that Dickens would spin. I'm sure there are some very sophisticated people who have read James Joyce and appreciate his works, to bad I can not be among them. I would think at the time he wrote this it must have broken some barrier's, but in today's world sounds just like another repressed Catholic. I do find reading about the Irish of the time interesting, I didn't realize the extent of the political upheaval. I found the sub notes to be distracting, but necessary.
     
    Bang for your buck, but underwhelming  Jan 16, 2007
    If you're here, you're here because you're looking for the cheapest edition of this book, which means one of two things:

    1. You're reading it for a class, or
    2. You want to read it for leisure and you're looking for the cheapest edition.

    Either way, you probably have some idea of what this book is about. I have only read Dubliners, and will be commenting primarily on that. As one of James Joyce's earliest novels, it is a series of short stories, chronicling life in Dublin.

    As a book, it's worth a read. It alternates between dull and interesting, with "The Little Cloud" and "The Dead" (the latter of which is universally renowned as the masterpiece of the work) shine above the rest. If you're a fan of realism, spontaneous prose, or Joyce, then it's for you. It's also good if you've never read Joyce and are looking for a "value pack."

    My biggest complaint with this edition is the notes. Many things are footnoted, usually to define a term. Most of these terms don't need definitions, and the sheer quantity of them is distracting. This was the major setback of the edition.

    If you want to read Joyce, I'd suggest a more expensive edition with better notes, unless you want a copy that is absurdly cheap. If so, this is for you.
