Odlučih se za ove kratke priče, jer bih svaki dan po jednu priču pročitao te tako pokušao da držim kakav-takav fokus. The collection skillfully captures the everyday struggles and aspirations of its characters and infuses the mundane with profound insights.

To give people some kind of intellectual pleasure or spiritual enjoyment by converting the bread of everyday life into something that has a permanent artistic life of its own' - James Joyce, in a letter to his brother. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.

A perpetual struggle for attention between past and present was an integral part of these stories sans any violent clashes.

Svaki junak u priči je rastrzan nemirima, izgubljen u stvarima koje ga neprestano opkoljavaju, i kao takav grabi spas u nevidljivom. With these 4 pieces, you dive into Dublin, seeing the interaction of trials and tribulations across a variety of ages. There was one part of a short story I found to be quite humorous (‘The Dead’): several Catholics are conversing with a Protestant. Without any clear evidence of thematic unity, logic of plot, or closure, Joyce prevents any conclusive critical analysis. He loved and hated it, became a bard of Dublin and its inhabitants, a great admirer but its stern critic at the same time.Joyce published Dubliners in 1914, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in 1916, a play Exiles in 1918 and Ulysses in 1922. It presents a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.

He was astonished to hear that the monks never spoke, got up at two in the morning and slept in their coffins. In July 2014, Irish actor Carl Finnegan released a modern retelling of "Two Gallants" as a short film.Drunkenness, violence and the stifling stranglehold of the Catholic church all play their part in showing a society where aspiration is a rare commodity, usually thwarted. Given the relative mildness of them to modern eyes, this fact in itself casts another light on how socially restricted the society was at the time of writing.

He was none the less educated at the best Jesuit schools and then at University College, Dublin, and displayed considerable academic and literary ability.

I think it was ‘Ulysses’ that scared me off, and I made a massive generalization (if I don’t understand that book, I won’t understand anything by Joyce). Rich collection of elements: youth and adulthood – money matters – trapping marriages – trapping love – ill-conceived duties – Mary – temptations for youth – the ghost of England – the public house – chattered dreams – Jesuits – alcohol – nationalism – unfeminine women – dreams of change – school ploys – Death – Parnell – liberating escape – topographical anchorage of the streets of Dublin.
