Exiles: A Play in Three Acts Including Hitherto Unpublished notes by the Author.
by Joyce, James.

Publisher Information:
Viking Press, New York: 1951.

This edition was limited to 1900 copies for public sale. A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus clipped dust jacket with a small chip near the top edge of the spine and a small water spot at the front fold of the jacket flap, else a very collectible copy. Slocum A-16. The author notes included in this edition of Exiles were uncovered after Joyce's death and appear here for the first time. "Exiles" draws on the story of "The Dead", the final short story in Joyce's story collection Dubliners. The basic premise of Exiles involves a love triangle between Richard Rowan (a Dublin writer recently returned from exile in Rome), Bertha (his common law wife) and his old friend Robert Hand (a journalist). (There are obvious parallels to be drawn with Joyce's own life Joyce and Nora Barnacle lived, unmarried, in Trieste, during the years the fictional Rowans were living in Rome, while Robert Hand is roughly the same age of Joyce's friends Oliver St. John Gogarty and Vincent Cosgrave, and shares some characteristics with them both.) This arrangement is slightly complicated by a second love triangle, involving Rowan, Hand, and Hand's cousin Beatrice Justice. (The fictional Beatrice, who in the play has recovered from a life-threatening illness, is just two years younger than Joyce's cousin Elizabeth Justice, who died in 1912.)
