What are the most significant stories in Dubliners regarding the aspect of the city as "the soul of paralysis"?

 

I am writing a thesis on how city life influences (mainly focussing on social issues rather than geographical) the characters in Dubliners, regarding the famous quotation of Joyce that the city is "the soul of hemiplegia and paralysis".

Now I want to concentrate on  two of the short-stories, but I struggle to find the most significant ones regarding my topic.

I thought about choosing Eveline as the first story, as she is obviously paralysed by the social structures the city life brings along. You think this is ok? What other story would you analyse?
