Joyce presents Dublin in the way because it was the way it made him feel. He loved his homeland, be he felt stagnated, unable to change, improve, or learn. He felt as if time stood still, and that the church and the government, and the people, and the place would all dictate his future for him. The paralysis was his reason for leaving.
