James Joyce

The Sisters

Joyce’s Irish experiences are essential to his writings, and provide all of the settings for his fiction and much of their subject matter. The early volume of short stories, Dubliners, is a penetrating analysis of the stagnation and paralysis of Dublin society. The stories incorporate epiphanies, a word used particularly by Joyce, by which he meant a sudden consciousness of the «soul» of a thing. Although many of Joyce’s works illustrate the rich tradition of the Catholic Church, his short story «Araby» displays his disaffection and loss of faith with the Church. The final and most famous story in the collection, «The Dead», was directed by John Huston as his last feature film, completed in 1987.

    `What I mean is,' said old Cotter, `it's bad for children. My idea is: let a young lad run about and play with young lads of his own age and not be... Am I right, Jack?'
