Dublin. Richard Ellmannl; F. Lionel Monro (as Administrator of the Estate of James Joyce). 1969. Oversized softcover with spiral bounding. Book Condition: Fine, some fading to pages. Jacket Condition: Near Fine, fading along spine and shelf wear to delicate edges. 23pp. (ill. in b/w).

 

This rare chapbook is a concentration on the connection between biography, imagination, and place. Anchored by geography, Ellmann uses Sandycove in Dublin as the grounds of his inquiry: into Joyce's personal experience and time spent there, to the setting it became for Joyce's characters, and into the idea of the site of memory and return. With a roving biographic text, personal photographs, reproductions of tickets and letters, and even maps, this volume is a case for the tower - the emblem - for the recurring symbols that in a writer or artist's works, becomes a way into perceiving the life of the figure, in this case of Joyce, himself.
