James Joyce’s “Dubliners”
Foundation course of the Irish Short Story tradition
Students will engage with arguably the most widely known and influential short story collection in the English language. Joyce’s bittersweet and incisive “style of scrupulous meanness” plainly dissects his native city and its political, social, and psychological constraints in a mode of lyrical and symbolic haunted realism. These plainly written and accessible fifteen stories examine childhood, youth, and maturity and culminate in a tender celebration of the humor, humanity, and hospitality of Dublin in the famous concluding story, “The Dead.”
