James Joyce’s only surviving play in a new edition with an introduction and annotations by Andrew Gibson.

After ten long years spent away from Dublin, Richard, Bertha and their young illegitimate son Archie are back home. Despite expectations of comfort and domesticity, the couple’s return to the place where they first met triggers an existential questioning, an anxiousness which is exacerbated by meetings with old friends and lovers.

James Joyce’s only surviving play, Exiles builds upon one of his most famous short stories, ‘The Dead’, to provide a profound exploration of jealousy, doubt and the complexity of human desire.
