Though he spent most of his adult life in Zurich and Paris, James Joyce always remained fiercely attached to the city of his birth. In Dubliners, he set out to dramatize what he called the “moral history” of the place—and created his first masterpiece. Originally published in 1914, this celebrated collection of stories is both a luminous portrait of turn-of-the-century Dublin and brilliant exploration of the universal trials and yearnings of the human heart.

This audio edition contains eight unabridged selections from Dubliners:

  • Araby
  • Eveline
  • After the Race
  • Clay
  • The Boarding House
  • Two Gallants
  • A Painful Case
  • Ivy Day in the Committee Room

    " I'm indifferent. Some stories we're intresting while others not at all. Still, an overall good book. "

    " what surprised me was not how spot-on his description of 1914 Dublin was, but how much this description still valid is in our times, and not only confined to Dublin... "

    " Nice how each story is short, easy to read them in one go. Lovely little poignant stories about life in Dublin. "

    " What really dragged me in with this book is the way Joyce brought out 19th century Dublin in his setting. While common, there was an additional flare in his writing I haven't found in newer approaches to the contemporary theme. His characters are an odd mix of relateable and out-worldly for us 21st century readers; some were portrayed better than others. Eveline for example I feel was rather diminished in terms of her character; while the metaphor of the caged animal at the end was good, the lead-up towards it had lessened the impact, and not by the sense of predictability (although there was nothing dramatic in that sense with these short stories). My favourite had to be A Painful Case. "
