This chapter analyses the allusive technique used by James Joyce in writing Dubliners. It identifies a number of previously unconsidered texts that lie submerged in the stories and considers what they might tell us about Joyce's attitudes towards literary revival and to Ireland's tragic history. The chapter also highlights the phantom presence of several other authors in Dubliners including William Butler Yeats, Alfred Perceval Graves, William Rooney and Ethna Carbery.

Keywords:   James Joyce, allusive technique, Dubliners, literary revival, Ireland's history, William Butler Yeats, Alfred Perceval Graves, William Rooney, Ethna Carbery
