No description available, The only extant play by the great Irish novelist Exiles is of interest both for its autobiographical content and for formal reasons In the characters and their circumstances details of Joyce s life are evident The main character Richard Rowan the moody tormented writer who is at odds with both his wife and the parochial Irish society around him is clearly a portrait of Joyce himself The character of Rowan s wife Bertha is certainly influenced by Joyce s lover and later wife Nora Barnacle with whom he left Ireland and lived a seminomadic existence in Zurich Rome Trieste and Paris As in real life the play depicts the couple with a young son and like Joyce Rowan has returned to Ireland because of his mother s illness and subsequent death br One can also detect hints of Joyce s interest in Nietzsche in Rowan s flawed pursuit of total individual freedom despite the stifling morals of Irish society Though wrestling with guilt over his own infidelities Rowan insists on this personal liberty not only for himself but for his wife as well who he knows is tempted by his cousin s amorous overtures br Joyce s decision to express himself in the form of a play no doubt reflects his long admiration of the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen In the tense dialogue the largely interior drama focused on the characters relationships the undertones of guilt and the longing for freedom one sees similarities with Ibsen s themes Also the spare understated writing style so unlike Joyce s exuberant playful and experimental use of language in his novels shows the influence of Ibsen s naked drama as Joyce described Ibsen s style in a published review Above all Joyce emulated the Scandinavian master in making the central issue of his drama the conflict between individual freedom and a demanding judgmental society In Exiles the protagonists struggle with the choice between living in defiance of the rigid conventions of Irish society or exile from their homeland br Though lesser known Exiles written after Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and while Joyce was working on Ulysses provides interesting insights into the development of the creative gifts of a literary genius, Si el Ulises de James Joyce se considera no s lo como su obra maestra sino tambi n como una de las cumbres de la literatura contempor nea el Retrato del artista adolescente tambi n suele ser considerada como una obra merecedora por s misma para situar a su autor entre los grandes escritores del siglo XX Si en algo difiere de las otras autobiograf as es una mayor ingenuidad Se distingue de ellas en el nfasis que pone en las aventuras emotivas e intelectuales del protagonista, b He asked himself what is a woman standing on the stairs in the shadow listening to distant music a symbol of b br br Often cited as the best work of short fiction ever written Joyce s elegant story details a New Year s Eve gathering in Dublin that is so evocative and beautiful that it prompts the protagonist s wife to make a shocking revelation to her husband closing the story with an emotionally powerful epiphany that is unsurpassed in modern literature br br b The Art of The Novella Series br br b Too short to be a novel too long to be a short story the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers Nonetheless it is a form beloved and practiced by literature s greatest writers In the Art Of The Novella series Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are in many instances presented in book form for the first time
