Dubliners’ fifteen stories can be read individually or as part of a fenestrated novel, moving from menacing childhood to death. In spare prose, James Joyce describes the shabby disappointed lives of chancers and dreamers. Yet an underlying Joycean radical uncertainty allows multiple meaning and implications to live within these stories. We will concentrate on these stories: “Araby,” “Eveline,” “Two Gallants,” “”Clay,” “A Mother,” and “The Dead.”
