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.

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

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.
