Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity. In Dubliners Joyce rarely uses hyperbole, relying on simplicity and close detail to create a realistic setting. This ties the reader's understanding of people to their environments. He does not tell readers what to think, rather they are left to come to their own conclusions. This is even more evident when contrasted with the moral judgements displayed by earlier writers such as Charles Dickens. This frequently leads to a lack of traditional dramatic resolution within the stories. The collection as a whole displays an overall plan, beginning with stories of youth and progressing in age to culminate in The Dead. Great emphasis is laid upon the specific geographic details of Dublin, details to which a reader with a knowledge of the area would be able to directly relate. The multiple perspectives presented throughout the collection serve to contrast the characters in Dublin at this time.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: JAMES JOYCES Erzahlsammlung Dubliners wurde im Jahre 1914 erstmals in Buchform veroffentlicht, obgleich 14 der darin enthaltenen Geschichten bereits in den Jahren 1902 bis 1906 fertig gestellt worden waren. Ursprunglich sollten die Geschichten in der Zeitschrift The Irish Homestead abgedruckt werden, doch war die Resonanz der Leser auf die kritische Haltung des Autors gegenuber Irland und Dublin und den negativen Tenor zunachst ausgesprochen schlecht. Ein weiteres Hindernis, das der Veroffentlichung von JOYCES erstem bedeutendem Werk entgegen stand, war die Furcht der Verleger und Drucker vor der Zensur. Insbesondere wegen der politischen Erzahlung Ivy Day in the Committee Room befurchteten sie eine Anklage wegen Majestatsbeleidigung und auch die verwendete Sprache erschien ihnen teilweise als unanstandig. Durch die Vermittlung von EZRA POUND, der sich gegen den allgemeinen Vorwurf der Morbiditat des Werkes ausserte, gelang JOYCE schliesslich doch noch die Publikation. Bedingt durch die Verzogerung von beinahe einem Jahrzehnt kam zu den ursprunglichen Erzahlungen noch eine weitere hinzu, und zwar die 1907 entstandene Geschichte The Dead, die sich formal und stilistisch etwas von den anderen abhebt. Aus literaturwissenschaftlicher Sicht macht eine typologische Einteilung von Dubliners gewissen Schwierigkeiten. Ein plot im klassischen Sinne ist kaum feststellbar. Die Geschichten sind statisch, verfugen teilweise uber keinen Spannungsbogen und wollen sich - unter anderem wegen ihrer elliptischen Konstruktion - nicht recht in die ubliche Vorstellung von Kurzgeschichten einfugen. HUGH KENNER et al. schlagen daher vor, das Werk eher als eine multi-faceted novel" zu betrachten. Obgleich sich das vorliegende Essay vorrangig mit der Frage beschaftigen mochte, inwieweit Dubliners als Kurzgeschichtensam

Seminar paper from the year 1994 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Englische Philologie), language: English, comment: "Good - excellent hold of English language ," abstract: 1. Introduction. When James Joyce had finally completed Dubliners in 1908, he himself considered his first work of fiction, a collection of fifteen short stories, to be a scrupulously realistic portrait of the Irish middle-class society of his time - a "looking-glass" in which the people of Dublin could see themselves and their paralysis. To introduce the book's major theme of paralysis, Joyce wrote the following critical commentary on Dubliners: My intention was to write a chapter of moral history of my own country and I chose Dublin for the scene because that city seemed to me the centre of paralysis. I have tried to present it to the indifferent public under four of its aspects: childhood, adolescence, maturity and public life. The stories are arranged in this order. I have written it for the most part in a style of scrupulous meanness... All of the characters in Dubliners are embedded in life's chronology, ranging from young to old and everyone is a typical portrayal of the ordinary people caught in everyday situations. They all have to endure the progressive diminution of life and vitality in the morbid and constrictive society of Dublin, in which human relations become distorted and escape seems to be impossible. In Dubliners, men and women are equally depicted as victims of their social and economic milieu, but the realistic picture Joyce drew of the situation of his female characters shows that women were even more affected by the narrow confines of a rather male dominant society. This paper is an attempt to picture Joyce's female Dubliners in their oppressive environment, mainly focusing on Joyce's "Eveline" as an all-encompassing representative of women's s

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,5, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Beim Lesen des Werkes Dubliners drangt sich die Frage auf, ob es sich bei diesem Buch um eine Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten oder einen Roman handelt. Formal und auch inhaltlich treffen die Merkmale einer Kurzgeschichte auf die einzelnen Geschichten von Dubliners zu. Aber kann man die Geschichten nicht auch in einen grosseren Zusammenhang stellen? Ein Roman kann sowohl Fiktion als auch tatsachlich passierte Ereignisse wiedergeben. Eine Serie von Ereignissen wird plausibel, nachvollziehbar und logisch auflosbar dargestellt. Protagonisten entwickeln sich und offnen sich gegenuber dem Leser, meistens in chronologischer Reihenfolge. Romane enden nicht abrupt in einem Hohepunkt, wie zum Beispiel eine Kurzgeschichte, sondern losen die Ratsel ihrer Geschichte auf. Die vorliegende Arbeit soll anhand einiger ausgewahlter Aspekte klaren, ob die Kurzgeschichten in Dubliners in Bezug zueinander stehen und ob eine thematisch einheitliche Qualitat vorliegt."

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2, University of Ulster at Coleraine (Faculty of Arts), course: Proseminar Irish Author Studies, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: This essay aims to examine James Joyce's method of 'scrupulous meanness' in two short stories chosen from the collection of Dubliners: 'The Sisters' and 'The Dead'. In addition, Joyce's attempt of conveying a temper of death and hopelessness shall find access into the discussion., abstract: When in 1914 James Joyce wanted to have his literary work Dubliners published by the British publisher Grant Richards, it was not at all as easy as Joyce had imagined. Before Richards could accept the work changes had to be applied that were accompanied by an exchange of various letters between author and publisher. The reason for Richard's hesitation to publish the book in its first version was the very accuracy of its language. Literary conventions would have been shocked by Joyce's accurate and entirely realistic description of social situations and psychological states. In his letter to Grant Richards Joyce tries to justify his style, and it is thus that he speaks of 'scrupulous meanness' for the first time. The term 'meanness' connotes stinginess or the lack of generosity. Joyce uses it to describe the economy of language applying to his stories. However, the interpretation demands a more complicated understanding of the term. 'Scrupulousness' is a crucial element both in Joyce's use of language, and in the structure and form of the stories. 'Scrupulous meanness' refers to a most complex and heavily allusive style that determines the reading of Dubliners. From the minimum of words Joyce succeeds to extract the maximum effect so that the very economy of his style gives Dubliners such concentration and resonance that it "passes through realism into symbolism" (Dubliners,1991, p. xix). Joyce puts this style forw
