Dubliners is a collection of short stories by james joyce that was first published in 1914.
Mainly, joyce worked and played in dubliners at plotting and characterization, description and dialogue, and (especially) point of view (the technical term for who is telling a story, to whom, and with what limitations) what is amazing is that such a relatively immature work succeeds almost without exception. Though short and easy to read, this story is devastating, possibly the most powerful in the book (the other candidate for that honor would be the dead) it is yet another dubliners tale about paralysis, as eveline stands on the pier at story's end, frozen in place by fear and guilt.
