James Joyce (1882 - 1941) - Novelista y poeta irlandés cuya agudeza psicológica e innovadoras técnicas literarias expresadas en su novela épica Ulises le convierten en uno de los escritores más importantes del siglo XX. Dublineses (en inglés, Dubliners) el primer libro de Joyce, es una colección de relatos cortos escrita por el escritor irlandés.

La Pensión: Estilo claro, de lenguaje sencillo y con gran precisión Joyce va hilando el relato como si se tratara de un hermoso manto tejido a mano. La pensión es un cuento acogedor que encierra la problemática a la que se enfrenta una familia de Dublin. La señora Mooney, es una dama muy decidida y autosuficiente, propietaria de una carnicería. Cuando muere el suegro, su marido comienza a gastar el dinero de la herencia en las tabernas. Tras una discusión, el marido casi la mata a cuchilladas. Entonces la señora Mooney consigue que su esposo se vaya de casa; vende la carnicería y funda una pensión donde se hospedan trabajadores y a veces estudiantes. La acción del cuento transcurre en esta casa de inquilinos.

    " Dubliners by James Joyce depicted the life of typical Irish people and the lives of basic people. James Joyce writes the novel in a series of short stories, depicted from the lives of everyday people and how they conduct their lives on a day-to-day basis. All the stories are conducted similarly, and James Joyce does a very detailed job of explaining the stories for simply how they are. Each story is simple and basic, but detailed and entertaining, but are all left with an abrupt ending for the imagination of the reader. The books seems to be set in late 1800's/early 1900's Ireland, and explains the way of life, poverty, emotion, and making a life from the perspective of people, ranging from men to women, young to old. I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a good, intriguing novel. James Joyce is very well thought out and intellectual when writing the novel, and it makes for a very good read for any interested reader. "

    " Joyce is brilliantly masterful with words. From "Two Gallants" - "He was tired of knocking about, of pulling the devil by the tail, of shifts and intrigues". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William S. | 1/25/2014

    " If this were many years ago, I would be hailing this writer as my latest literary discovery. It is down home Dublin as written by an evident master, with "The Dead" leading to the promise of even more substantial writing. For all that, these stories are also a pleasure to read! I bought my copy at a bookshop in Dublin, and only wished I had read it before the trip! "

    " My favorite James Joyce book. It reminds me of being in Ireland and of my grandmother...always a good combination. "

    " I've read the first short story in this for book discussion group. I don't know if I'll make it through any more of them. I read The Dead and it was pretty good. I just couldn't stomach the rest of the book. Too many footnotes and confusing language. "

    " Ja wel mooi en goed enzo maar ook best ingewikkeld hoor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 1/1/2014

    " Great short stories, but not in the modernist style Joyce is known for. So detailed and full of legitimate Irish people and places. This edition had copious notes, which were a tremendous help. Though, even with the notes I'm still a little confused about some phrases like: "a sod of turf under his oxter." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lola | 12/29/2013

    " Amazing literature! Covers aspects of Dublin from the view of a variety of citizens. "

    " I liked it less than Portrait but it had a few interesting shorts "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 11/18/2013

    " A collection to read again and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chuck Cannon | 10/15/2013

    " One of the best sets of short stories ever. I listened to audiobooks this time around and I think reading it is better. By the way, why is Ulysses and Portrait of the Artist for Kindle free on Amazon but Dubliners is 99 cents? I'm not paying that. Occupy Amazon! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 10/3/2013

    " I've read this before and it stands the test of time. I am enjoying it for my third time and know I will revisit it in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J.J. Howard | 7/3/2013

    " This is the book that made me appreciate Joyce. Worth reading "The Dead" even if you don't read the whole collection. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deepti | 5/25/2012

    " Joyce's simple stories keep one gripped. Wonderful collection and a great introduction to Joyce. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D.H. Benson | 8/7/2011

    " This book, actually a collection of short stories, was good, but not great. Maybe James Joyce's later books are literary classics but this book wasn't anything special. After reading the book, I didn't think there was anything remarkable about any of the characters or the city of Dublin. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrew G | 8/1/2011

    " Relentlessly boring, I must be a masochist to have finished this "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frankie | 6/23/2011

    " Definitely his milieu - you can actually appreciate his artifices in the shorter format "
