Blog Assignment #2: Imagery and Paralysis in Joyce’s Dubliners
For Monday you’ll read three short stories from James Joyce’s Dubliners. The stories portray ordinary people in Dublin, Ireland, during the first decade of the Twentieth Century, in a realistic prose style marked by vivid imagery and a certain musicality. How does Joyce use imagery or sound to explore the relationship between self and society in any one of these stories? Be sure to provide an example from the text.
Of course, feel free to write on anything else you might have observed, too.
