    This is a collection of short stories Or are they one single long story A Portrait of the City as an Old and Stultifying Enclave This story fashions a kaleidoscopic vision of Dublin in the early 1900s This is a city enclosed in a gray cylinder that a hand turns periodically and new scenes are conjured up for the contemplation of a single male eye The same components reappear, falling in different places playing different relationships with each ot

    James Joyce once said If Dublin suddenly disappeared from the Earth it could be reconstructed out of my book Ulysses I have never been to Dublin so I have no idea what it s like today, but through Joyce s writings I have a sense of what it was like in the early 20th century It s not so much that he describes the physical city, but his descriptions of its establishments, its social and political atmosphere, and especially its people, is so detailed and

    Why do we wish to live this life life, which at times seem to accompany the vague impressions we have long since been comfortable to carry along the ideas, the choices, which have become a second nature to us How many times do we stop and think about them Particularly, as readers, as the ones who have been challenged, and hence in a way made aware by written word how many times do we stop and think life cannot always be a search, it cannot always be a constan

    Was no doubt about it if you wanted to succeed you had to go away You could do nothing in Dublin .The stories that make upDublinersopen with death and death ends it as well And somewhere in between there is a life The first truancy, the first timid amorous sighs and all shades of greyness, whole stretches of the usual humdrum reality People caught up in the daily routine, whom life was withheld The workers, petty crooks and freeloaders, seamstresses, scullery mai
