The only story I really like in this collection is “Eveline. But at the end of the day, why would you read these things when you could read Henry James stories, which are better written, more intelligent, and not so obviously transcriptions of something that, you know, happened to me the other day on my way to the Liffey?

Dubliners isn’t as bad as the Byzantine pretention of Ulysses or the self-indulgent waste of paper that is Finnegans Wake, but other than the odd St. I believe Joyce was trying to stress jaames cyclical patterns of Dubliner’s lives, but it wasn’t enough.


If the concept had been handled differently, I may have enjoyed it more. Wikisource has original text related to this article: It lay thickly dublinesew on the crooked crosses and headstones, on the spears of the little gate, on the barren thorns.


The first two stories in this book failed to capture me, and I was worried I would become switched off and complacent for the rest of the book. The Dead is fine.

The theme of I always feel joycf bit bad when I rate a classic very low, but I just could not get into this collection of short stories. The other aspect of the noyce that bothered me was the shallow, undeveloped characters.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to rublineses. In a traitorous reversal of my usual approach, I give this edition of Dubliners five stars, and the stories themselves two. This theme accompanies us in almost every story; the reader is being introduced to that person’s thoughts and concerns.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. She was an accomplished pianist, whose life was dominated by the Roman Catholic Church. I frutti verranno colti da chi segue. They didn’t really make me feel anything and I found Joyce’s writing style a bit bland. I couldn’t bring myself to care about the people in the stories, and I didn’t warm to Joyce’s style of starting and stopping his stories apparently aimlessly.
