''Dubliners'' is a 1914 collection of short stories about various residents of Dublin written by Creator/JamesJoyce. It was his first published work and is much less experimental than ''{{Ulysses}}'', although still considered a masterpiece, and one of the most famous short story collections of all time. The stories are interrelated, although no one character repeats. But the first three stories and the last one (especially the last one) can be very easily interpereted as being about early versions of Stephen Dedalus, the main character of his first novel, ''Literature/APortraitOfTheArtistAsAYoungMan''.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: More like early installment ''normalcy''. Read ''{{Ulysses}}'' (or ''{{Finnegans Wake}}'' if you wanna lose [[MindScrew your marbles]]), then go back and read ''Dubliners''. Weird, right? Interestingly, ''Ulysses'' was originally set to be the last story of the book, called "Ulysses in Dublin" but Joyce decided that the story of Leopold Bloom deserved its own book.

The final story of the collection, and the most famous, "The Dead" was adapted into a critically acclaimed film by Creator/JohnHuston in 1987.

* MeaningfulName: In "Counterparts," as Farrington is beating up his kid, the boy begs for mercy not to, and even promises to say a ''Hail Mary''. Cut to the next story, "Clay," where the main characters name is Maria ([[CaptainObvious which is a form of the name Mary]]), who is looked up to by everyone as a motherly figure.
