Mavrogordato, E.E. Review of Joyce, James,
Times Literary Supplement no. 648,
(18 June 1914):
In the "new novels" section with Marion Hill's Sunrise Valley, Olive Wadsley's Reality, Wilkinson Sherron's The Marriage Tie. JJ is "not concerned with all Dubliners, but almost exclusively with those of them who would be submerged if the tide of material difficulties were to rise a little higher." "Dubliners may be recommended to the large class of readers to whom the drab makes an appeal, for it is admirably written." "Shunning the emphatic, Mr Joyce is less concerned with the episode that with the mood which it suggests." M also reviewed that year Figure Skating in the English Style, The Gourmet's Guide to London, True Irish Ghost Stories. Eustratius Emmanuel Mavrogordato, 1870-1946, was a barister and frequent contributor to TLS and Times. He wrote over 2,000 reviews from 1908 to 1946. Times obituary (8 November 1946) notes "His free and flowing style, backed by shrewd judgement and accurate perception, gave his reviews distinction as well as authority.".
