    One thought on “Dubliners”

    1. Life is full of missed opportunities and hard decisions. Sometimes it’s difficult to know what to actually do.Dublinerscreates an image of an ever movie city, of an ever moving exchange of people who experience the reality of life. And that’s the whole point: realism. Not everything goes well, not everything is perfectly constructed. Life is random and unpredictable. If we’re not careful it may escape from us entirely. There are two types of stories inDubliners. The first, and by far the m [...]

    2. Was James Joyce the greatest English language writer in modern times? I don’t know, maybe, but Dubliners helps to make his case. Brilliant in it’s subtle, realistic way. Fifteen stories that paint a portrait of Dublin at the turn of last century. "The Dead" is the final story and the most poignant and powerful but several stand out as exceptional, and they are all good. “Counterparts” is a disturbing close up look at the old drunken Irish family stereotype that fails to be humorous. “A [...]

    3. Before embarking towards my maiden Joyce read, I prepared myself to pour in as much effort required on my part to understand Dubliners. I didn’t assume them to be incomprehensible or distant, but an anxiety akin to meeting a known stranger for the first time was definitely present. The said anxiety shortly materialized into a much-awaited prospect after reading the opening story and finally transformed into a confident and gentle companion who led me through the sepia streets of an unassuming [...]

    4. (*)This is a collection of short stories. Or are they one single long story?“A Portrait of the City as an Old and Stultifying Enclave.”?This story fashions a kaleidoscopic vision of Dublin in the early 1900s. This is a city enclosed in a gray cylinder that a hand turns periodically and new scenes are conjured up for the contemplation of a single (male) eye. The same components reappear, falling in different places playing different relationships with each other; some others disappear forever [...]

    5. James Joyce once said; "If Dublin suddenly disappeared from the Earth it could be reconstructed out of my book Ulysses". I have never been to Dublin so I have no idea what it's like today, but through Joyce's writings I have a sense of what it was like in the early 20th century. It’s not so much that he describes the physical city, but his descriptions of its establishments, its social and political atmosphere, and especially its people, is so detailed and complete that the physical picture ju [...]

    7. Why do we wish to live this life; life, which at times seem to accompany the vague impressions we have long since been comfortable to carry along; the ideas, the choices, which have become a second nature to us. How many times do we stop and think about them? Particularly, as readers, as the ones who have been challenged, and hence in a way made aware by written word; how many times do we stop and think - life cannot always be a search, it cannot always be a constant exploration into unknown, a [...]

    8. Was no doubt about it: if you wanted to succeed you had to go away. You could do nothing in Dublin.The stories that make upDublinersopen with death and death ends it as well. And somewhere in between there is a life. The first truancy, the first timid amorous sighs and all shades of greyness, whole stretches of the usual humdrum reality. People caught up in the daily routine, whom life was withheld. The workers, petty crooks and freeloaders, seamstresses, scullery maids, servants, scriveners, sa [...]

    9. review update – 5/15/17The first twelve stories of Dubliners were submitted to a publisher in 1905, when Joyce was 22. They were accepted, but squeamishness on the publisher’s part kept delaying publication. Over the next three years Joyce submitted three additional stories. Finally he took the collection to a second publisher. Again it was accepted, and again it was held back. Finally, in 1914, the original publisher overcame his fears and released the volume to the public. By now, however, [...]

    10. My relationship with James Joyce has started off well and I'm excited to take on the next step: I've been wanting to read Ulysses for quite some time, and after finishing The Odyssey, I figured I'd read Dubliners as some of the characters in his short stories appear in minor roles on his longer, modernist novel.This is a collection of fifteen short stories - and I'll keep this a short review as well - that deals with the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the beginning of the 1900's [...]

    11. "Irlanda es un gran país. Lo llaman la Isla Esmeralda. Después de siglos de estrangulamiento, el gobierno metropolitano la ha dejado desierta y es ahora un campo de barbecho. El gobierno sembró hambre, sífilis, superstición y alcoholismo: puritanos, jesuitas y reaccionarios crecen ahora." James JoyceCuando uno recorre la lista de los más grandes escritores que dio la literatura y pone especial atención en aquellos que amaron en el real sentido de la palabra a su tierra natal, la cantidad [...]

    12. "For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal."-James JoyceDubliners is fantastic literary inspiration, it forced me to take better notice of my surroundings, of my own city, which has an untapped endless source of heartbreak, joy, turmoil and everything else to do with the human predicament. It also almost forced me to park myself anywhere and write somethi [...]

    13. Dubliners is a good collection to read on a quiet Sunday evening, if only to disappear from the rest of the world and into Joyce's version of Dublin, Ireland. It's also a good feeling to delve into a book that was accepted for publication in 1904, and yet, "due to puritan prudery, it got passed from fearful publisher to fearful publisher" until someone had the good sense to publish it nine years later. Thank you for the publication and for reiterating Joyce's reasons of isolation from Victorian [...]

    14. A collection of 15 short stroies by James Joyce all set in Dublin and first published in 1914.They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish Middle class sife in around Dublin in in the early years of the 20th Century.This is my second reading of this collection and this time I listened to the audio book which was narrated by Jim Norton and his Dublin accent was excellent and he really does bring the book alive with his rich voice.The stroies were all written when Nationalism was at its peak in Ire [...]

    15. 3,5*Ιστορίες καθημερινές, χωρίς υπερβολική πλοκή και αναπάντεχες εναλλαγές. Οι χαρακτήρες κάθε διηγήματος είναι άνθρωποι απλοί, πολίτες του Δουβλίνου, ο καθένας με τις δικές του προσδοκίες, αδυναμίες και πάθη. Η λιτή εξιστόρηση των γεγονότων επικεντρώνει το ενδιαφέρον του [...]

    16. I suppose I've always intended to read Joyce; it's terribly daunting but seems inevitable, too, that I must follow the man all the way through to Finnegans Wake. I have a copy. Untouched. Another remnant of the days when I thought I was on Earth to prove some kind of a point.But I'm still awfully curious, and this year I finally dipped a toe in. Dubliners came first and seemed easiest to start with, and I'd read a story or two of it already. And indeed it is pretty conventional, even self-consci [...]

    17. Another book from my project (quite successful until now) to read more classics. When I was in college and Uni I was all about contemporary literature (Marquez, Reverte, Murakami) and I missed many of the "must read" authors. I am trying to redeem myself now. I chose the Dubliners because I knew I would never have the will and patience to finish Ulysses. I have to admit that although I understand the value of the volume and its structure, I did not like it. It bore me terribly. I fell asleep whi [...]

    18. From my review of The Dead, the final story in Dubliners:I thought I was done with James Joyce. I really did.I've read Ulysses. Twice. I've also read multiple study-guides; slogged through countless websites of analyses. I'm still resentful at Ulysses. Right when you are about to give up, with finality, you come across one of those lines. Those Joyce nuggets. Those snippets of such purity you wonder if he is but a vessel through with a literary higher power is speaking. Then the magic wears off [...]

    19. Dubliners is a collection of fifteen short storiesStory of a citywhile you are reading, you will feel more comfortable with city and citizensyou will find many personalities that are interesting to youthis is a wonderful book that is full of emotions favorites are Araby, A Little Cloud and The Dead

    20. This is a book of ghosts; a book full of life and death, and how lives are affected by life and death, and how the dead affected the lives of the living. Joyce makes one feel how all of these Dubliners are living; you will get swept up in their lives. Some stories are better than others, but they all had something to bring to the life Dublin. I can see this was the first stepping stone to getting to Ulysses from the use of the daily happenings of people. I loved the links that some of the storie [...]

    21. My first ever Joyce and I have to say that I approached this book with a lot of trepidation and yet a curious feeling that I just can’t describe but one can associate with such authors and their books. With Finnegan’s Wake and Ulysses on my ‘I hope to read and understand someday’ shelf, given their notoriety for their abstract and difficult prose, it is no surprise that one would approach Joyce with such feelings. Nevertheless, I picked this one up for two reasons. Firstly, because I am [...]

    22. I must confess I dreaded a little to start reading something of James Joyce. I think I made the wright choice to start with 'Dubliners'. I really appreciated the stories although they are not always easy to understand. The last story for example begins with festivities for Christmas. At the end of the party the woman of the main charachter introduces herself. She descends from the staircase as in many ghoststories the ghost appears. One wonders if it's a ghost, if she's just an image that Gabrie [...]

    23. Οι Δουβλινέζοι είναι τύποι παρακμιακοί, από την άποψη ότι ζούν στο περιθώριο της ζωής. Σε καμία ιστορία δεν συμβαίνουν συγκλονιστικά μυθιστορηματικού τύπου γεγονότα. Σε κάθε μία όμως από αυτές ο εκάστοτε πρωταγωνιστής βρίσκεται αντιμέτωπος με μια αλλαγή( είτε το θέλει είτ [...]

    25. “There was no doubt about it: if you wanted to succeed you had to go away. You could do nothing in Dublin.”--Joyce "Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euclid and the word simony in the Catechism. But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work.” Dublin [...]

    26. Brilliant and encyclopedic as James Joyce was -- the artist who, more than any other, hauled the ancient storytellers' calling to distill an entire culture into the 20th Century -- his work in prose began with this subdued, sequenced exercise in urban heartache, and it's the book I choose to celebrate for . Yes, ULYSSES had its way with me, too, a walloping inspiration, there's no denying. But DUBLINERS provides the ur-version for what's become a fiction staple, the community portrait in linked [...]

    27. Magnificent. A real work of literary piece of art. It is sublime. It is the author's complsion to present the beauty of the secret soul of Dublin people , inner mobilities of their hert, in their contorsions. Moving, deeply moving , touching revulsion-like experience of set-in habits and customs of the country, of one city, it is the cartography of the city. It is more than a mere collection of short stories. It is inhabited by compartiments of lives of desesperations. From the Sisters to the De [...]

    28. There's nothing I can say about this collection of fifteen short stories (or rather, fourteen short stories and one novella) which hasn’t been said thousands of times before. However, I can say that it's been a revelation to discover that Joyce's early work is so accessible. I found these stories - all of which provide glimpses of Dubliners at a particular moment of insight and self-realisation in their lives - utterly fascinating. They contain memorable characters, beautiful language and a st [...]

    29. My displeasure with Dubliners, and my general distaste for James Joyce, is a long-standing fact. I won't waste space here by trash-talking "The Dead" like I usually do. The only story I really like in this collection is "Eveline."I know, I'm the worst English major ever.

    30. مثال بسیار مناسبی برای خوندن یک کتاب در زمان نامناسب. من این کتاب رو سال سوم دبیرستان خوندم. تا یه سال قبلش، هنوز کتاب های شرلوک هلمز و پوارو و کتاب های ایزاک آسیموف میخوندم. بعد، این رو خوندم. معلومه که بیشتر داستاناش رو به زور تموم کردم، فقط چون توی کلاس داستان نویسی، استادمون [...]
