Dubliners
Dubliners: And Chamber Music | James Joyce
Dubliners comprises fifteen short stories, which Joyce intended should accurately reflect the life of the Irish middle class. Each story centers around the moment of epiphany, when a character suddenly understands something about themselves or their life and surroundings that they didn't understand before. The protagonists of the stories progress as a life progresses: from children to adolescents, to adults and the elderly.

Here‘s a recommendation in honor of St. Patrick‘s Day. Dubliners is James Joyce‘s ode to all walks of life in turn of the century Dublin.

I finished this book last night and enjoyed it a lot. Dubliners is a collection of short stories set in Ireland and I really enjoyed going through them. My personal favourite was the story, Eveline which was based on the life og Eveline. I also liked The Sisters, which was the first story in the book.

A definite #must.

jy0tiar0ra Thanks for the review. I have it stored on my Kindle. Will try to read it soon now 10mo
justagirlhighonbooks @jy0tiar0ra oh you should definitely try! I personally loved it.😁😁 10mo
Swe_Eva My favorite is "The Dead," but it may be partly because of the wonderful John Huston film version. 10mo
justagirlhighonbooks @Swe_Eva I like The Dead, too. And particularly Gretta. She is such a strong character.😍 10mo

I just bought this from Goodwill. I'm excited to read but very intrigued by the note inside. Why did Larry donate such a lovely gift from Andrew and Dick? If someone brought a book back from Ireland to thank me for watching their children (or possibly pets?) I'd cherish it forever. Maybe they had a falling out, maybe Larry passed away. Poor Larry. So many mysteries!

CoffeeNBooks I love it when I find used books with "treasures" like this, but it always makes me wonder about the story behind it. It almost makes me sad, like the book probably took it personally that it was given away after having had a personal note written in it. ? 10mo
GingerAntics @CoffeeNBooks it didn‘t take it personally? 😯😏😂 10mo

A mellow set of short stories that gives the reader access to the faint highs and the numbed lows of life in the Dublin of Joyce's time. Pretty somber throughout, but keenly introspective in a realistic, "working-man" kind of way.

Happy Birthday to Anjelica Huston!Born in Santa Monica, makes her one of the #californiagurls.She was raised in Ireland ,her father filmmaker John Huston, became an Irish citizen.The last film he made,on oxygen ,in a wheelchair,was “The Dead”from the James Joyce story.I loved her dads respect for literature,and to see this story come to life on film , a wonderful thing.Since Dubliners is my favorite book of short stories, I was enchanted by it.

JamieArc Cool! Thanks for sharing! I‘ve always had a mild fascination with Anjelica Huston ever since seeing her in The Witches. 1y

I seem to inadvertently have ended up reading two short story collections simultaneously. I decided to read The Refugees because I recently bought it and I'm so bad at reading the books I buy straight away so when I was done with Ready Player One I jumped straight into that. The May theme for my book group was short story collections so we chose Dubliners by James Joyce.

This has been on my ‘to read‘ list for a long, long time. This book is a collection of 15 short stories highlighting the everyday middle class citizens of Dublin, Ireland in the early 20th century. I really enjoyed it. I wanted more from each story. I highly recommend it.

“Melancholy was the dominant note of his temperament, he thought, but it was a melancholy tempered by recurrences of faith and resignation and simple joy. If he could give expression to it in a book of poems perhaps men would listen.”

Just scored these two lovely editions for my #LitsyClassics Challenge at Dog Eared Books. I‘m going to try to use the library, books I already own, and Serial Reader but I‘m planning to let myself splurge on a few if they are really nice editions like these beauties. I saw some other gorgeous volumes too but they weren‘t on my list so I practiced self restraint.🙌

Our latest book club was of James Joyce's Dubliners and Gertrude Stein's Tender Buttons. We greatly preferred the Joyce with its heavy themes versus Stein which was too experimental for us. We had to switch our game plan last second, but still ended up having a great time. You can read about entire experience, including the planning bellow:

This is more of a "it's me not you" pan. While I enjoyed the first few stories I soon grew tired of them and the majority of the short stories bored me and didn't hold my attention. I've come to realize that short stories are just not for me.

KathyWheeler This and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man are pretty much the only Joyce I love. 2y
Kristy_K @KathyWheeler I'll probably give Joyce another try and I own Portrait of... so I'm glad to hear it's good! 2y
KathyWheeler @Kristy_K Yeah -- if short stories aren't your thing, at least try Portrait. It's pretty straightforward, not experimental or odd like the rest of Joyce. 2y

I've been in a reading rut for a few days waiting on a much anticipated hold to come in. I've been reading these short stories before bed. This Joyce is more "readable" than I was expecting. ?

Okay, so in case it wasn't already evident, I feel like I should warn everyone: I'm obsessed with James Joyce. He's my favorite everything & this is the book that started it all: Dubliners. It is a wonderful little collection of short stories about random characters from Dublin, young, old, rich, poor, happy, sad, & Joyce gives us a glimpse into their daily lives & shows us that there is yet so much beauty in the mundanity & minutiae of a day 😍
