James Joyce’s Dubliners

James Joyce called the short stories in his collection Dubliners a “nicely polished looking-glass.” Published in 1914, the 15 stories in the book examine the everyday lives of people in the city of Dublin, Ireland as they were in 1907. This short course will set the stories in the context of Ireland’s history and Dublin’s streets, as well as examine some of the symbolism of the stories and Joyce’s famous use of “epiphanies.” Copies of the stories are freely available online and at the library.

Dates and locations to be announced.
