The remarkable collection of stories that make up Dubliners was described by Joyce himself as a series of chapters in the moral history of his community; and, according to Harry Levin, the arrangement of the tales reveals "a progression from childhood to maturity, broadening from private to public scope." In June 1914, after nine years of effor on Joyce's part, the first edition of Dubliners was published. A few critical responses to the book foreshadowed more sympathetic attention in the years to come. G. E. Moore called the "The Dead" "perfection," and Yeats wrote of the stories that they showed "the promise of a great novelist, and a great novelist of a new kind."
