The Sisters towers above the rest of the collection. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man It’s not interesting in the slightest.

Eveline is fine melodrama. This book just wasn’t doing it for me. I seem to have missed them: It’s one of the great story collections in the English language–a brilliant, unflinching, often tragic portrait of early 20th-century Dublin. Views Read Dublinesee View history. I will say that the narrator on this book was really excellent.

No doubt 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. Some aspects of the book are interesting, but the pacing and flow are hard to get past. If this book had been written by, say, James Giffon, not only would it not get the hundred pages of notation treatment. At least I gave it a try. In a traitorous reversal of my usual approach, I give this edition of Dubliners five stars, and the stories themselves two.

I expected to meet some familiar characters, but that didn’t really happen and I found it mostly forgettable. This was, of course, because each story was so short, but I like to delve into my character’s lives and issues.

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”. It offers great glimpses into the daily lives of the people of Dublin. 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!

Not long after her death, Joyce was traveling again. Joyce offered to pay the printing costs himself if the sheets were turned over to him and he was allowed to complete the job elsewhere and distribute the book, but when Joyce arrived at the printers they refused to surrender the sheets. Wikiquote has quotations related to: The Dead is fine. Joyce is a tedious git. In he entered the University College, Dublin.
