Welcome to the 7 Best Short Stories book series, were we present to you the best works of remarkable authors. This edition is dedicated to James Joyce. James Joyce was an Irish, modernist writer who wrote in a ground-breaking style that was known both for its complexity and explicit content. He also participated in the early days of poetic modernism in the English language, being considered by Ezra Pound one of the most eminent poets of imagism. Although Joyce has lived outside his native Irish island for most of adult life, his Irish identity was essential to his work and provide him with all the ambiance and much of the theme of his work. His fictional universe is rooted heavily in Dublin and reflects his family life and events, friendships and enmities from school and college times. In this way, he is at the same time one of the most cosmopolitan and one of the most particularists of the modernist authors of English language. In this anthology the critic August Nemo presents seven short stories that bring the most emblematic elements of the style of this important author: - The Sisters; - Eveline; - Araby; - A Painful Case; - The Dead; - Two Gallants; - After the Race; Bonus: James Joyce?s Amazing Chronicle by Joseph Collins and James Joyce by John Macy.If you appreciate good literature, be sure to check out the other Tacet Books titles!
