Description

Dubliners is arguably the best-known and most influential collection of short stories written in English, and has been since its publication in 1914.

Through what Joyce described as their "style of scrupulous meanness, " the stories present a direct, sometimes searing view of Dublin in the early twentieth century.

Most of the stories are wonderfully written and brilliantly thought-provoking.

With these fifteen stories, James Joyce reinvented the art of fiction, using a scrupulous, deadpan realism to convey truths that were at once blasphemous and sacramental.

Whether writing about the death of a fallen priest ("The Sisters"), the petty sexual and fiscal machinations of "Two Gallants, " or of the Christmas party at which an uprooted intellectual discovers just how little he really knows about his wife ("The Dead"), Joyce takes narrative places it had never been before.

Each story is a gem, and together they tell like a rosary. "The Dead, " is by itself a masterpiece which resonates long after you've finished it.

In essence, these are Joyce's portraits of the people of Dublin and the city itself, most of these stories are character sketches, mostly following a few people around as they go about their lives.

At his best, he makes you live the lives of the characters and immerses you deeply into the city of Dublin, probably more than any group of short stories has ever brought a city to life.

The last story in the collection is called "The Dead". . . simply put it is one of the best pieces of short fiction you will ever read.

Dubliners is Joyce's most accessible work, readable and enjoyable without losing any of its deeper nuances.

If you were wowed by Ulysses, then Dubliners should reconfirm Joyce's genius for you and that he could do other writing besides that postmodern classic.
