Max Tomlinson My three cents: The narrator wanted an adventure and he got one – it just wasn’t the exotic experience he wished for but one from real life. How does Joyce answer the age-old question, “What time is it?
WordSmitten This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ For Joyce, time closely connects the jamee population to the quantity of liquid flowing at the village pub. Farrington suggested the Scotch House. The bar was full of men and loud with the noise of tongues and glasses.
Joyce and his canon of literary works are part of the DNA, even today. See all 4 questions about Dublineses…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Another book from my project quite successful until now to read more classics. When I was in college and Uni I was all about contemporary literature Marquez, Reverte, Murakami and I missed many of the “must read” authors.
I am trying to redeem myself now. I chose the Dubliners because I knew I would never have the will and patience to finish Ulysses. I have to admit that although I understand the value of the volume and its structure, I did not like it. It bore me terribly. I fell asleep whi Another book from my project quite successful until now to read more classics.
I fell asleep while reading many times and it was a struggle to follow the stories. Some stories were really good but the majority were just boring. I also read a couple of analysis for the stories which were far more interesting than the stories themselves.

View all 12 comments. My displeasure with Dublinersand my general distaste for James Joyce, is a long-standing fact. I won’t waste space here by trash-talking “The Dead” like I usually do. The only story I really like in this collection is “Eveline. View all 5 comments. For some reason, these stories left me cold. No doubt this is my lack rather than the author’s.
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. I have read that in each story there is supposed to be a moment of epiphany for the central uames. I seem to have missed them: To me, the characters seemed to be quite unaware of their shortcomings, or their contribution to a dreadful outcome, such as in “A Painful Case”.
Having said that, there were phrases of description that stayed with me, and earned the second star. I loved this in “The Mother”: View all 20 comments. Reading Ulysses has always been a pending tick on my to-read list and somewhere I read that many characters from Dubliners make an appearance in it.
That made me pick up Dubliners first instead. It is good piece of work, absolutely. Choicest anecdotes and sprightly characters intersperse the dublinesea pickings from the city of Dublin and the city’s rather simple lifestyle.
Dublineses by James Joyce (2 star ratings)
Some of the stories felt like they happened in dublimeses backyard. The mundane life, if seen with a nuanced eye, can be reveling, is wh Reading Ulysses has always been a pending tick on my to-read list and somewhere I read that many characters from Dubliners make an appearance in it.
The mundane life, if seen with a nuanced eye, can be reveling, is what makes this little work, precious.
But I, more often than not, get engulfed in this inevitable expectation web that comes along with reading a celebrated author for the very first time. I raise the bar way too hoyce or perhaps, fall short of grasping the finer details sparkling underneath. I think its more the latter than the former and wearing my optimist hat, let me foresee a day when my judgement will get refined with more reading!
Having said that, I liked most of the stories jamess loved the 4th, “Evelyn”. Ulysses will not be discarded, after all: View all 13 comments. I wanted to enjoy this as much as Ulysses, but it was closer to The Portrait for me, which I didn’t particularly like. Udblineses expected to meet some familiar characters, but that didn’t really happen and I found it mostly forgettable.
I understand how some people can like this book, but it definitely wasn’t for me. Yes it was interesting to see how the people of Dublin lived at that time, dublneses I would have preferred to have one huge story and not so many novellas. It made it impossible for me to connect to any character.
In a traitorous reversal of my usual approach, I give this edition of Dubliners five stars, and the stories themselves two. So, excellent job there. On the othe In a traitorous reversal of my usual approach, I give this edition of Dubliners five stars, and the stories themselves two. On the other hand, I couldn’t help feeling that this edition was a distant descendent of The Dunciad.
Not only because so much effort had been put into annotating dublinedes that more or less anyone reading this book should know, but because there seemed to be little point dblineses the process dublinfses annotation. Sure, I appreciate being told that all of the landmarks and streets and shops are ‘real,’ and that occasionally they have some meaning that would otherwise have escaped me. But even with that meaning in my mind, very few of these stories are at all gripping.
Without the stylistic hijinks of Ulysses, you’re left with the bare fact that Joyce has no imagination, no ability to create plot, and not much of a mind for ideas. That doesn’t matter when you’re writing Ulysses.
It dublinesss a great deal when you’re asking me to trawl through nearly pages of dull, romanticized anecdotes about how x loves y dublinesss y betrays her; how w, x, y and z sit around drinking; and how people sometimes drive fast cars. In short, most of these pieces are dreadfully boring, at all levels of boredom: The Dead is fine.
Eveline is fine melodrama. The Sisters towers above jamrs rest of the collection. 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? If this book had been written by, say, James Giffon, not only would it not get the hundred pages of notation treatment.
It wouldn’t even be in print.
No rublineses that seems very impressive when you don’t know the landmarks, but consider that this is the early 20th century equivalent of putting your character in Toms and having her carry a Coach purse.
It’s not interesting in the slightest. I recognize that it was very hard for Joyce to publish a book with the word ‘bloody’ in it, and that he took a risk writing a story involving a kiddy fiddler, and so on. These facts should be noted by historians of censorship; they are not reasons for reading the stories. Joyce is a tedious git.
I already don’t care much for slice-of-life human-condition type fiction, but the fact that it’s Joyce makes it just that tiny bit worse.
At least the stories are short though The Dead is pushing it and there aren’t too many of them.
