A Dubliners Time Chart [699-Dub3c.htm] Heyward Ehrlich © January 2012

Dubliners had a complex publishing history. Three stories were published in the Irish Homestead in 1904, nine more were written in 1905, and "Two Gallants" and "A Little Cloud" were added during negotiations with publishers Grant Richards (London) and Maunsel (Dublin). In 1906, "The Sisters" and two other stories were revised, and Joyce added "The Dead" in 1907. The eventual publication of Dubliners by Richards in June 1914 overlapped both the start of the serialization of Portrait in The Egoist in February and the earliest drafts of Ulysses in March. For details, see short or long Joyce chronologies.
