Dubliners

James Joyce

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914.

The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life living in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.

The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They center on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character has a special moment of self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses.

The initial stories in the collection are narrated by children as protagonists, and as the stories continue they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people.
