Overview of A New and Complex Sensation: Esssays on Joyce's Dubliners

Editor Frawley (English, University College, Dublin) compares Dubliners to a gathering storm. The contributors of these 20 essays agree, adding that some storms are still gathering a century after Joyce wrote it and nine decades after he finally got it published. They examine newly-found contexts of the work, including the language, the space, the politics, the humor, its service to epiphany, its translations into languages not generally heard on Dublin streets. They examine the facets of individual stories, from the troubled friendship in "A Little Cloud" to the militancy in "The Dead." They also strain the themes and tropes of Dubliners through critical filters which have come since Joyce's times, finding new gold in his visual and aural senses, his doubt and his touch, his edginess toward women. The collection closes with a short story by John McCourt, showing how the storm has broken, and how much more still gathers. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
