“The London Connection” draws on the “Book of Days” (1906–1909), Stanislaus Joyce’s unpublished diary from the time he lived together with Joyce in Trieste. This little-studied diary offers valuable evidence of Joyce’s aspirations and strategies to publish and promote Dubliners through London’s literary industry including his plan to move to the city in 1908 and study for an MA degree at the University of London. My close readings of Joyce’s works aim to highlight the historical conditions against which Joyce shaped his stance towards Dublin’s history and culture and its geopolitical entanglement with London, the centre of the British Empire: the ways London is evoked in an epiphany he wrote in Cockney idiom (1900), in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and in Ulysses.

Keywords:   diary, Dubliners, London, literary industry, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, British Empire, James Joyce, Stanislaus Joyce
