James Joyce


Dubliners is a collection of picturesque short stories that paint a portrait of life in middle-class Dublin in the early 20th century. Joyce, a Dublin native, was careful to use actual locations and settings in the city, as well as language and slang in use at the time, to make the stories directly relatable to those who lived there.
The collection had a rocky publication history, with the stories being initially rejected over eighteen times before being provisionally accepted by a publisher—then later rejected again, multiple times. It took Joyce nine years to finally see his stories in print, but not before seeing a printer burn all but one copy of the proofs. Today Dubliners survives as a rich example of not just literary excellence, but of what everyday life was like for average Dubliners in their day.

    There was no hope for him this time: it was the third stroke. Night after night I had passed the house (it was va­ca­tion time) and stud­ied the lighted square of win­dow: and night after night I had found it lighted in the same way, faintly and evenly. If he was dead, I thought, I would see the re­flec­tion of candles on the darkened blind for I knew that two candles must be set at the head of a corpse. He had of­ten said to me: “I am not long for this world,” and I had thought his words idle. Now I knew they were true. Every night as I gazed up at the win­dow I said softly to my­self the word para­lysis. It had al­ways soun­ded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euc­lid and the word si­mony in the Cat­ech­ism. But now it soun­ded to me like the name of some mal­efi­cent and sin­ful be­ing. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work.

    After that Mrs. Don­nelly played Miss McCloud’s Reel for the chil­dren and Joe made Maria take a glass of wine. Soon they were all quite merry again and Mrs. Don­nelly said Maria would enter a con­vent be­fore the year was out be­cause she had got the pray­er­book. Maria had never seen Joe so nice to her as he was that night, so full of pleas­ant talk and re­min­is­cences. She said they were all very good to her.
