This is my first reading of Joyce’s “Dubliners.” I know, shocking, everyone else read it in high school or collegiate undergraduate literature courses and were forced to author papers on Joyce’s themes and symbolism. I read it for pleasure and for background on a project I’m working on. It’s considered one of Joyce’s more accessible works, certainly when compared with “Ulysses” which has a reputation for everyone claiming to have read it, but no one actually does. Anyways, I did find it readable, even with it being over a hundred years old and full of references to cultural and colloquial phrases which are beyond me. Anyway, I’ll try my hand at a short analysis of this collection of fifteen short stories.

The first thing that strikes me is how pedestrian and mundane the characters and even the plots of these tales are. This is the dreary, everyday life of Dublin commoners. It’s also largely filled with horrible people – thieves, drunks, and abusers to name a few. Most of the tales either end tragically (e.g., suicide) or at best – an unresolved melancholy stalemate. As I was reading it, I wasn’t sure if Joyce was going for a realistic expose of Dublin (sort of a 107-year-old version of a modern reality show) or something else. But when you step back and look at the whole of the book, it shows a stunted Dublin filled with people going nowhere and unable to break out of their gloomy routines and lives. And knowing a little of the history of Ireland, it makes me wonder if this was a delicate cut on the impact of English colonialism and maybe even to a lesser extent the restraints of the Catholic Church. About the only positive you’ll take away from 1914 Dublin is the pride in Irish hospitality.

Still, despite the dismal subject matter, Joyce writes with beauty. His ability to rapidly create complex characters with realistic needs and desires is extraordinary. He describes everyday life, but with such a fine blend of place, dialog, and narration, it feels all too real. Character’s display little notions, quirks, and thoughts that feel authentic, like Joyce is reporting on what’s going on around him, but able to jump in everyone’s head. The last story is particularly beautifully told, about an annual dance, that spins characters and motivations and songs, food, and drink until you’re dizzy. The prose is lush and vivid, but still with the same underlying sadness and cold themes. Although I probably don’t have the proper context of 1914 Ireland and Joyce’s intentions, I was still able to appreciate this impressive classic. ( )

James Joyce apresenta narrativas de um rigor realista extraordinário, composto por cenas cotidianas da capital da Irlanda. Seus personagens são forrados por mais carne do que por ficção escrita.
Os incidentes que os envolvem reforçam ainda mais a falta de necessidade de uma situação com tempo e espaço cronometrados.

As soon as I finished I realized that I was going to be re-reading these stories, probably many times. I will probably get more out of them with each and every time I revisit them. This is a masterpiece and I can see why we still read Joyce. The raw emotion combined with deep analysis of these real characters--no, real people, make these stories as illuminating as they are compelling. These characters lived and live in every city and their Irish experience is not a cultural anomaly. It is universal. When the husband in "The Dead" ponders his own superficiality and wonders whether he has been important in his wife's life--worthy even, of the life and the part of herself that she has given to him, this is any man in any time. Each story deals in universals yet takes these characters out of the vague imagination and gives them local habitation and a name. These stories have happened, are happening now, and will continue happening as long as people live and share their lives together. ( )

I read (most of) these short stories for my OU course. This particular edition has an absurd number of 'helpful' footnotes, which I gradually learnt to ignore unless I was really struggling with the meaning. I came to this collection with the idea that Joyce was difficult to read, but these were not that difficult really, other than one about an election, which I gave up on.

I can see that they are good, but I didn't particularly enjoy them and the mood was so depressing throughout. ( )

I liked these stories, but read them very slowly. Many of them were a bit too subtle for my taste, or featured a bit too much talk about religion. But I really loved the evocative and grim descriptions of Dublin, the vivid insights into how people lived. And the writing was very good, so, tack a star on just for pure joyful wordsmithery. ( )

Araby: North Richmond Street, being blind, was a quiet street except at the hour when the Christian Brothers' School set the boys free.

Traversando il Grattan Bridge abbassò gli occhi con compatimento sulla fila dei miseri aborti di case lungo le rive del fiume. Gli apparivano come un branco di vagabondi ammucchiati gli uni addosso agli altri sulla banchina, coi vecchi pastrani fuligginosi e infangati; vagabondi stupefatti dal panorama del tramonto, che attendessero il primo freddo notturno per alzarsi, riscuotersi e partire.
