Dubliners Summary

Dubliners (Collins Classics) by James Joyce

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

'One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.'

Revealing the truths and realities about Irish society in the early 20th century, Joyce's Dubliners challenged the prevailing image of Dublin at the time. A group portrait made up of 15 short stories about the inhabitants of Joyce's native city, he offers a subtle critique of his own town, imbuing the text with an underlying tone of tragedy. Through his various characters he displays the complicated relationships, hardships and mundane details of everyday life and the desire for escape - a yearning that so closely mirrored his own experiences.

About James Joyce

Irish novelist and poet James Joyce produced some of the most influential literature of the early 20th century, experimenting with new styles of writing. Perhaps most well-known for Ulysses, Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Joyce remains one of the most celebrated authors of the modernist avant-garde.
