Publisher's Summary

In short stories, poems, and monumental novels, James Joyce set out to discover the meaning of his nationality, simultaneously celebrating and ridiculing the history of Ireland in the brilliant style that has made him the most towering figure in the literary landscape of the early 20th century. Dublin-born Gabriel Byrne, who has starred in 16 films, including Little Women and The Usual Suspects, clearly brings to life Joyce's short stories from Dubliners, and selections from A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Chamber Music in this audio version.

Times past

A beautiful evocation of the distant past, narrated with a timeless fluidity, and with the warmth and witticism reminiscent of the Irish personality and character. I remember that song "The Lass of Aughrim" from when as a 17yo I hear it sung by an Irish tenor (in Ireland) and was deeply moved. Sigh
