Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, and was first published in The stories form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.
The main character, Gabriel Conroy, works as a teacher and book reviewer. He is better educated and more sophisticated than the average man. Fargnoli and Gillespie , p. Indeed, the epiphany is a moment of individual revelation, and its precise features may vary from person to person.
His psychological position is far removed from local customs and from the celebration over which he presides. He inhabits a world markedly [p. He was undecided about the lines from Robert Browning, for he feared they would be above the heads of his hearers.
Some quotation that they would recognise from Shakespeare or from the Melodies4 would be better.
He would only make himself ridiculous by quoting poetry to them which they could not understand. Her voice was veiled and sad.
Consumption, was it? But he shook himself free of it with an effort of reason and continued to caress her hand. He did not question her again, for he felt that she would tell him of herself.
Her hand was warm and moist: it did not respond to his touch, but he continued to caress it just as he had caressed her first letter to him that spring morning JOYCE, , p. Gretta and Gabriel have been far from each other all night long and this lack of connection between the couple establishes, at the end of the story, a kind of competition between Gabriel and the dead Michael Furey. According to Fargnoli and Gillespie this song is a well-known ballad by an anonymous author, which originated in the north of Ireland.
It tells the story of a young peasant girl seduced and abandoned by Lord Gregory. Lord Gregory learns of this and pursues the lass and the child, who put to sea before he can catch up to them, leaving him helplessly to witness their drowning. Since he is dead he can be romantically idealised, unlike Gabriel, who is obliged to reveal his flaws and failings in the present. While he had been full of memories of their secret life together [Gabriel and Gretta], full of tenderness and joy and desire, she had been comparing him in her mind with another.
A shameful consciousness of his own person assailed him. He saw himself as a ludicrous figure, acting as pennyboy for his aunts, a nervous, well- meaning sentimentalist, orating to vulgarians and idealising his own clownish lusts, the pitiable fatuous fellow he had caught a glimpse of in the mirror.
Instinctively he turned his back more to the light lest she might see the shame that burned upon his forehead JOYCE, , p. The most clearly unambiguous representation of Irish Nationalism in the story is to be found in the character of Miss Molly Ivors. She is an ardent Irish nationalist with strong ideas about Irish cultural independence, and also a supporter of the language movement Irish Gaelic. She is a critical presence, rendering Gabriel uncomfortable when she teases him because of his book.
Her Irishness is even manifest in the jewellery she chooses to wear: Gabriel found himself partnered [to dance] with Miss lvors. She was a frank-mannered talkative young lady, with a freckled face and prominent brown eyes. She did not wear a low-cut bodice and the large brooch which was fixed in the front of her collar bore on it an Irish device [An identifiably Irish design] and motto JOYCE, , p.
His alcoholic behaviour associated with his kind-hearted empathy, and his profound respect for popular custom makes him a contrastive character of Gabriel. Joyce describes him in such a way as to [p. According to Fargnoli and Gillespie , p. Joyce, while questioning the moral personality of his characters is also questioning the political ability of Ireland to exist as an independent country. This Irish weakness would be the real subject of the entire work.

New York: Facts on File, My uncle saw me staring and said to me: "Well, so your old friend is gone, you'll be sorry to hear. Cotter here has just told us. He was passing by the house. My uncle explained to old Cotter. The old chap taught him a great deal, mind you; and they say he had a great wish for him. Old Cotter looked at me for a while.
I felt that his little beady black eyes were examining me but I would not satisfy him by looking up from my plate. He returned to his pipe and finally spat rudely into the grate.
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? That's what I'm always saying to that Rosicrucian there: take exercise. Why, when I was a nipper every morning of my life I had a cold bath, winter and summer. And that's what stands to me now.
Education is all very fine and large Cotter might take a pick of that leg mutton," he added to my aunt. My aunt brought the dish from the safe and put it on the table. When children see things like that, you know, it has an effect Tiresome old red-nosed imbecile! It was late when I fell asleep. Though I was angry with old Cotter for alluding to me as a child, I puzzled my head to extract meaning from his unfinished sentences.
In the dark of my room I imagined that I saw again the heavy grey face of the paralytic. I drew the blankets over my head and tried to think of Christmas.
But the grey face still followed me.
