Dubliners ß This work of art reflects life in Ireland at the turn of the last century and by rejecting Was James Joyce the greatest English language writer in modern times? I don’t know maybe but Dubliners helps to make his case Brilliant in it’s subtle realistic way Fifteen stories that paint a portrait of Dublin at the turn of last century The Dead is the final story and the most poignant and powerful but several stand out as exceptional and they are all good “Counterparts” is a disturbing close up look at the old drunken Irish family stereotype that fails to be humorous “A Mother” though epitomizes the stereotype of a blusterous stubborn as a mule Irish mother And about those Irish stereotype? Might they have been given voice by Joyce through Dubliners? A highly influential work from a respected inspiring author this is great reading epub ´ ☆ James Joyce

James Joyce ☆ Dubliners text

James Joyce ☆ Dubliners text Mpses into the lives of ordinary Dubliners and collectively they paint a portrait of a nati Why do we wish to live this life; life which at times seem to accompany the vague impressions we have long since been comfortable to carry along; the ideas the choices which have become a second nature to us How many times do we stop and think about them? Particularly as readers as the ones who have been challenged and hence in a way made aware by written word; how many times do we stop and think life cannot always be a search it cannot always be a constant exploration into unknown a desperate call to something which is striven for for the attainment of something decisive Or is it? Perhaps But what when the decisive is attained is conuered? Where does one go from there? Surely in search of something still unknown still unconuered But we forget to stop in between Or we rather choose to ignore that which comes in between because we are too afraid to stop And that is life I remember this very beautiful uote by Allan Saunders “Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans” We forget that sometimes life is also the acceptance of that which is presented to us by mere chances or than that by the long witnessed “usual” So when I picked up Dubliners while still continuing with The Rebel I was at first annoyed because nothing seemed unusual or interesting there But then I just strove ahead because I had loved “A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man” and so I wanted to give this a chance Some stories and I realized the simple idea with which these stories might have been penned I realized that author might have wanted to portray life as actually experienced and lived by the characters who might in fact had been real people around him People who had lived a life set by routine patterns and where nothing out of ordinary had ever happened This realization made me sit straight and uestion myself How many right ways can be there to live a life? One or two or ; Is it ours or theirs or still somewhere between the two? I don’t even know if these are the right options But what I do understand is that either way it is life we are talking about Life which is lived both consciously and unconsciously which may be different in living but which in the end culminates into the same Oh but by this I do not undermine one way or the other but simply wish to express the value of understanding bothIt was the last story of the collection ie “The Dead” which deeply touched and gave me food for thought It actually brought to eyes something unusual from the rest of the stories view spoilerSee the incorrigible me hide spoiler
