“In Dubliners, Joyce’s first attempt to register in language and fictive form the protean complexities of the ‘reality of experience,’ he learns the paradoxical lesson that only through the most rigorous economy, only by concentrating on the minutest of particulars, can he have any hope of engaging with the immensity of the world.”–from the Introduction
“Joyce renews our apprehension of reality, strengthens our sympathy with our fellow creatures, and leaves us in awe before the mystery of created things.” –Atlantic Monthly
“It is in the prose of Dubliners that we first hear the authentic rhythms of Joyce the poet…Dubliners is, in a very real sense, the foundation of Joyce’s art. In shaping its stories, he developed that mastery of naturalistic detail and symbolic design which is the hallmark of his mature fiction.” –Robert Scholes and A. Walton Litz, authors of Dubliners: Text and Criticism
With an Introduction by John Kelly

These are more character than action or plot driven, almost "snapshots" in the lives of the inhabitants of Dublin at the turn of the century. Well worth a look at.
Joyce's wife allegedly said, "Why don't you write books that people can read?".
A walk through Dublin when the Irish were still reluctant British subjects and, as Joyce wrote elsewhere, "The Irish are afraid to admit they are afraid".
Frightful short story about alcoholism.
