Dublin has been called the centre of the paralysis of the Universe, the second city of Empire, Scandaltown, Strumpet City, a series of accidental encounters, the largest village in Europe, the fishy home of Molly Malone, and - occasionally - the capital of Ireland. Although Dublin has had a history that encompasses a huge range of human experience, Dublines is not a conventional historical presentation of the city's fascinating character, it is more a series of pictures and a choir of voices that together form a complex portrait of the city - from its venomous wit to its instinctive warm-heartedness, from its sick congestion to the expansive visions and statements of many of its sons and daughters. Questions implied in Dublines include: To what extent is Dublin still a little London? Is it in some ways a post-colonial parody of a genuine Irish city? Is it severed from the rest of Ireland, smugly unaware in its conscious and unconscious egotism, condescending even when its mediocrity is obvious? Or has it a character all its own?This anthology has been compiled not in a spirit of judgement but in a spirit of fair-mindedness. In other words, readers of this book will, when they've read it, have their own view of Dublin through the ages and the rages, the poverty, power, opulence, elegance, ugliness, congestion, gossip, disease, beggary, nightmares, revolutions and renewals of the city. Stodgy chronology is bypassed and a system of contrasts and comparisons, startling affinities and shocking oppositions is used to let the pictures and voices of Dublin have their say. The structure of the book reflects the relentless, scintillating talk, chat and gossip of the city. Here are Dublin's voices of the centuries: novelists, poets, talkers, dramatists, historians, wanderers, anecdotalists, tourists, short story writers and chroniclers of all kinds. Dublin is a city that produces and cherishes its famous characters; but the most enduring character of all is Dublin herself.Every Dub is Dublin's leading authority on Dublin. To avoid arguments, neither of the editors of Dublines is from Dublin (but both have lived in the city for most of their lives). Brendan Kennelly, a Kerryman, is one of Ireland's best-known poets and Professor of Modern Literature at Trinity College Dublin. Katie Donovan, poet, critic and Dublin journalist, is from Wexford. First word on this book from a Dub friend of theirs: 'Sure, what would a pair o' culchies know about Dublin? Yez are only a pair of blow-ins.' Read on for their answer...

Exploring writing of working-class Dublin after Seán O'Casey, this book breaks new ground in Irish Studies, unearthing submerged narratives of class in Irish life. Examining how working-class identity is depicted by authors like Brendan Behan and Roddy Doyle, it discusses how this hidden, urban Ireland has appeared in the country's literature.

This volume addresses the beauty of convention not in an attempt to recapitulate established values (as, luckily, in literature and culture, there are not absolute beauties that serve everyone and always), but as an aesthetic appreciation of form as a keeper of meaning and as an ethical post-cynical metadiscourse on human dependence on symbolic interaction and generic conventions. Looking into the artificial, invented, side of this concept, the book addresses such questions as: What is beauty by virtue of convention? How does convention generate beauty? How does it happen that a convention acquires a normative force? What is the nature and the “logic of situation” that leads to the arbitrary conventions? How are alternative conventions made? What is inertia, and what real joy or belief ensures the stability of convention? Is there a natural correctness that enables the stability of convention? How does convention determine linguistic meanings? Can interpretation avoid convention? Without imposing one definition onto the reader, this volume presents an understanding of the stability of convention and how it generates beauty by employing numerous contemporary reading strategies and diverse cultural, ethnic, gender, psychological, and textual perspectives. Primary focus is given to various literary texts ranging from early classics to modernism and contemporary writing, though there are also discussions on other forms of human expressions, such as music, dance and sculpture. This book will contribute to the on-going discussion about the ambiguities inherent in the concept of convention, and, thus, stimulate intellectual confrontation and circulation of ideas within the fields of literature and culture.
