The Dubliners at Slate and the Wake at 75

I hadn't realized that this year marked the centenary of The Dubliners till Mark O'Connell put up a post about it yesterday on Slate magazine. Time to reread Dubliners, I'm thinking. Check out his piece HERE .

And now I see that I entirely missed the 75th birthday of the Wake itself yesterday, but as Peter Chrisp tells us over on his blog From Swerve of Shore to Bend of Bay, although Joyce himself got a copy for his birthday earlier, the official release date was May 4, 1939. He also tells us that this is the day when the title finally became public.
