Exiles Summary

Exiles by James Joyce

It's the summer of 1912. Back in Dublin after nine years abroad, Richard, a successful writer, and Bertha, his wife, have to confront two other people who love them, and ask themselves questions about guilt and responsibility. Will infidelity hold them together? Exiles is a startlingly modern picture of a marriage, based in part on Joyce's own relationship with Nora Barnacle, while the story of a renowned writer returning to Dublin after nine years of self-imposed exile reflects Joyce's experience, too. Exiles, his only play, was written between A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses - and famously rejected for the Abbey Theatre by W.B. Yeats. It is republished in this new edition - with a specially commissioned introduction by Conor McPherson - alongside a major revival at the National Theatre, the first in London since Harold Pinter directed it in 1970.

About James Joyce

James Joyce (1882-1941) is the author of Dubliners (1914), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), Exiles (1918), Ulysses (published in Paris 1922), Finnegans Wake (1939) and many poems. He met Nora in Dublin in 1904 and the two of them lived in Pula and then Trieste until 1915, when the War forced them to move to Zurich, where, after a long spell in Paris, Joyce returned to die.
