Description

Dubliners (published in 1914), is not a collection of short stories that were written at various periods and with various themes. It is clearly meant to be a unified work of art. James Joyce said that he chose Dublin as the setting because it was "the center of paralysis." Yet he also stated that his purpose was to depict "the eventual spiritual liberation of my country." Such a "liberation" could occur only if the Dubliners were to shed the myths about Ireland and face their true situation. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences a life-changing self-understanding or illumination.show more
