There are two kinds of stories in "Dubliners" - those that are intimate and really involve the readers with the characters and those that are detached and show the reader as being more of just a casual observer. Both of the story types are fascinating, but not everyone will like the stories because of the different feelings that they often invoke in the readers. However, the main purpose of this paper is not to discuss the book specifically, but instead to discuss how it relates to the actual life that James Joyce lived.

From the Paper:

"Even though the idea of hope is very important to the stories in "Dubliners", this does not mean that the book is full of happy endings. On the contrary, there are very few happy endings in the book. Instead, there are only the stories that Joyce tells, what happens to the people in them, the choices that they make, and what kinds of consequences that these individuals experience based on the choices that they make. Many of the people in the stories do not think of the future or even really realize that it is ahead of them."
