Book Description

This carefully crafted ebook: "Dubliners (All 15 Short Stories)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.


Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.


James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His complete oeuvre also includes three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now we're talkin' June 23, 2014

Dubliners is still a magnificent collection of Joyce's short fiction. The big difference between this version and the one I purchased last night is that this one is readable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Consummate Master January 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No one has ever bested this consummate Irish master at the art of the short story. It is a treat to revisit the stories introduced in most college modern lit classes as well as to find lesser known jewels.
