Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

When James Joyce's sequence of short stories entitled Dubliners was published in 1914, it met with a distinctly cool reception. This was largely on account of its un-attractive subject, the representation of Dublin life in the early 1900s. Nowadays, Dubliners is considered not only the prime example of the Irish short story but a classic of the genre itself. And in the course of the 20th century critics came to appreciate the explanation Joyce gave to his publisher in 1906, when he wrote: "My intention was to write a chapter of the moral history of my country and I chose Dublin for the scene because that city seemed to me the centre of paralysis. [¿] I have written it for the most part in a style of scrupulous meanness [¿]."

Assessment and permitted materials

Requirements for credit: regular attendance, active participation in class, PowerPoint presentation, written final test.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

To study short stories is essentially an exercise in close reading. We will thereby explore basic premises of the genre. Another aim will be to situate Joyce's art in the context of early-2oth-century social and cultural history.

Examination topics

Inter-active (oral presentations, class-room discussion, short introductory lectures).

Reading list

Required reading:
James Joyce, Dubliners. Edited by Jeri Johnson. Oxford Paperbacks. Oxford World's Classics. ISBN 978-0-19-953643-6.
