Publisher's Summary

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.

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.
