  • Norris s book is one of the most brilliant scholarly publications on DUBLINERS extant I d read and used it before, but I just blocked out a portion of time to read it from beginning to end, from cover to cover Norris s scholarship is matched by her unique, inventive, but never far fetched intensive readings of the stories Her labeling of them as suspicious is perfect And highlighting all is the sheer elegance of her delivery I don t think intellectual undertakings are often conveyed with the com [...]
