Critically acclaimed author James Joyceâ??s Dubliners is a collection of short stories depicting middle-class life in Dublin in the early twentieth century. First published in 1914, the stories draw on themes relevant to the time such as nationalism and Irelandâ??s national identity, and cement Joyceâ??s reputation for brutally honest and revealing depictions of everyday Irish life.
