A Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man

Description: This fictionalised portrait of Joyce1s youth is one of the most vivid accounts of the growth from childhood to adulthood. Dublin at the turn of the century provides the backdrop as Stephen Dedalus moves from town and society, towards the irrevocable decision to leave. It was the decision made by Joyce himself which resulted in the mature novels of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. Read unabridged by the incomparable Joyce expert, Jim Norton.This volume contains the last six stories from James Joyce's "Dubliners" collection: "A Painful Case", "Ivy Day in the Committee Room", "A Mother," "Grace", and "The Dead".

Ulysses [Unabridged]

Description: A masterwork of modernist literature, Ulysses records the events of a single day, June 16, 1904, in Dublin. Ireland. Joyce used the structure of Homer's epic The Odyssey as a contrast to the lives of the Dublin working class. Like the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes, Ulysses contains leitmotifs of vanity and the uselessness of pursuit. Ulysses follows two characters, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom through a day in Dublin, Ireland. The men participate in and observe human activities, many base and obscene, and respond with their own emotions, thoughts, and memories. Through these observations Joyce contrasts subjects such as religiosity vs. irreligiosity; realism vs. sentimentality; and pessimism vs. optimism. Each extreme has an extreme opposite. Ulysses was banned in the United States until 1933.
