About | Mapping Dubliners Project

The Mapping Dubliners Project began in 2010. The first version was built in Google Maps. A second version was created shortly afterwards using the Google Maps “convert to Google Earth file” tool. Once in the Google Earth format, the information was restructured to enable story-centric showing and hiding capabilities.

All quoted text from Dubliners is from the Project Gutenberg text available here. Page numbers refer to the 1967 Modern Library edition.

The Believer: An Interview with Julian Gough

The Believer: An Interview with Julian Gough | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it

The Theatre Times - The Druid "Godot"

The Theatre Times - The Druid "Godot" | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
To those who feel overexposed to Waiting For Godot—which includes many theater snobs—no text-faithful production may ever fully satisfy. A great many worldly people yawn nowadays at the play as written. They’ve seen enough Didis and Gogos who wear the requisite grubby clothes and boots and move among objects that actually resemble a tree and rock. …

Review of Derek Mahlon’s new collection

Review of Derek Mahlon’s new collection | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
The mind of Derek Mahon is not, he assures us, one that can be ‘set at rest’. But would we wish it to be? Would we want him free of tension and contradiction and impossible desire? One might as well wish for a placid elder Yeats or a young Auden free of guilt and fear.
