あらすじ・解説

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.

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.

Dubliners seems timeless, unfortunately.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes and no. I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys seamless storytelling. I would not recommend this book to anyone who enjoys lively, feel-good books. The short stories, though wonderfully written, were not for me. They could be written today, without changing a word, and they would still be accurate and relevant. The book didn't do it for me because the stories were a look into the present as much as the past. This is life, as it was and as it is, with little movement. I don't like my books to mirror what is already all around me.

Do you think Dubliners (AmazonClassics Edition) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No thank you.
