Anna Livia Plurabelle: Faber Modern Classics

Paperback, 02/02/2017, £6.99

As James Joyce was working on Finnegans Wake, he asked his friend T S Eliot to shepherd an early extract, simply known as 'Work in Progress' into print. This celebrated episode, Anna Livia Plurabelle, was the first part of Joyce's extraordinary text to be published in England, printed in pamphlet form in 1930. This is a new edition of the episode.

Poems

7, 02/01/1992, £12.99

It is only James Joyce's towering genius as a novelist that has led to the comparative neglect of his poetry and sole surviving play. This work presents a portrait of the artist as a young man. It confronts painfully personal issues of adultery, jealousy and betrayal.

£8.99
Capturing a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom, his friends Buck Mulligan and Stephen Dedalus, his wife Molly, and a cast of supporting characters, the author pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes.

£8.09
A series of short stories, in which the author captures uneasy souls, shabby lives and innocent minds in the dark streets and homes of his native city.
