Dubliners by James Joyce


by James Joyce

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs.


Dubliners is a collection of short stories about the lives of the people of Dublin around the turn of the century. Each story describes a small but significant moment of crisis or revelation in the life of a particular Dubliner, sympathetically but always with stark honesty. Many of the characters are desperate to escape the confines of their humdrum lives, though those that have the opportunity to do so seem unable to take it. These stories introduce us to the city, which fed Joyce's entire creative output, and to many of the characters who made it such a well of literary inspiration. Rich in humor and musical allusion, they contain some of Joyce's most powerful and moving prose. Features: The Sisters | An Encounter | Araby | Eveline | After the Race | Two Gallants | The Boarding House | Grace; A Little Cloud | Counterparts | Clay | A Painful Case | Ivy Day in the Committee Room | A Mother | The Dead.
