Dublin The First Thousand Years

Peter Somerville-Large's superb, and very pesonal histoyr concentrates on the lives of the people of this colourful and contradictory city; on the idiosyncratic combination of poverty, elegance and wit exemplified by Swift, Joyce and Gogarty; on the small intimate town where AE, George Moore and W.B. Yeats met casually and where Leopold Bloom wandered; and on the shabby, countrified Georgian capital which lingered on long after other cities had submitted to the concrete revolution.
