Слайд 7: James Joyce’s most famous work: Dubliners 1914
James Joyce’s first major work was Dubliners, a collection of fifteen short stories dealing successively with events of childhood, youth and adulthood. As the title indicated, Joyce made Ireland the focus of his stories.
All of the short stories are set in Dublin, Ireland. Many focus on the themes of death, disease, and paralysis. Many of the short stories are interconnected by symbols and moods. The stories are not as bleak as their themes suggest, though. Many explore the subtleties of experiences that are common to all.
Dubliners is about people’s spiritual growth more than anything else. All of the characters in the stories struggle, in one way or another, with morality, personal frustrations, or restless desires. They are ordinary people involved in various minor, yet meaningful, events in everyday life. Often, these characters are on the brink of discovering something, such as loss, shame, failure, or death.
These stories contain no melodramatic conflict. Instead, the stories present those quiet moments in the characters’ lives when they come to a sudden realization of the meaning of their existence (an epiphany ).
In Dubliners, James Joyce made use of epiphany to show complex emotions. At the end of the stories, the heroes suddenly understood their predicament. It is then that the heroes of the stories realize the essence (real meaning) of life.
