Yesterday was Bloomsday. I never finished Ulysses, but I re-read some classics from Dubliners.


I used to like this one. I think it's most people's favorite and the most anthologized. Now I roll my eyes. I used to want to not be like the narrator, but now I realize I'm just like him. I don't have time for adventures in Araby and unrequited love is part of life.


This is the next most anthologized. It's very similar to Araby, but from a female perspective. That is probably why I used to like it less. But it's a bit more mature and a better story.

Two Gallants

This is the best story in the book. Characters make or break a story.
