The Hill of Vision
The Dublin firm of Maunsel and Co. was founded in 1905 by George Roberts, Joseph Maunsel Hone, and Stephen Gwynn. A disagreement over the printing of Dubliners caused Joyce to satirize the firm in his 'Gas from a Burner'. James Stephens also relied on their publishing efforts. The Hill of Vision appeared in 1912, and reflects the poet's obsession with the work of the English visionary poet William Blake.
