    Description

    In exploring everyday life and its intersections with death, this enduring collection of stories offers a naturalistic depiction of the working class in early twentieth-century Dublin. Joyce masterfully portrays frustrations and aborted desires to escape the mundane; transformative epiphanies both great and small; and the restraints, loneliness, violence, and contemplations of lives lived.

    Though Joyce’s subjects were considered as taboo as his language was unsavory, Dubliners was a milestone work praised for its unflinching realism. It remains a transcendent and relatable portrait of the perils—and acceptance—of the human condition.

    AmazonClassics brings you timeless works from the masters of storytelling. Ideal for anyone who wants to read a great work for the first time or rediscover an old favorite, these new editions open the door to literature’s most unforgettable characters and beloved worlds.

    Revised edition: Previously published as Dubliners, this edition of Dubliners (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

    Realism Defined

    Joyce made waves when he wrote this great book depicting the lives of people in Dublin—warts and all. It was a very realistic and somewhat depressing view of life. In other words, he really didn’t hold back all that much. Readers at that time didn’t want reality. They wanted to escape their mundane lives.

    As always, Joyce’s characters were richly defined and usually likable.

    The narration is good. However, if you don’t like the narrators, there are many other versions of this great book.

    Depth of characters were enjoyable

    It was a joy to read the personal musings of people. Tinges of sadness leading to somewhat or very painful outcomes.
