Bloomsday in Dublin - Skibbereen Eagle
The great irony is James Joyce didn’t like Dublin. He made no secret of the fact, but he never wrote of anywhere else and his writing is filled with the city. From his early work, Dubliners, to his last novel, Finnegan’s Wake, Joyce shows a type of obsession with the city of his birth and childhood. It was a very different city from today’s Dublin. It was a city of gaslight, horse-drawn carriages, out-door plumbing and unpaved streets.
★★★BOOK COVER REVIEW ★★★ Dubliners by James Joyce The cover transports the reader to a time when a great city is still becoming. Dublin, an Irish town then, depicts a small community atmosphere of the countryside blending with the growing city's periphery. All in all, the cover is very well illustrated and complimented by the earthy colors. Spread the love, Eva Márquez
