Joyce’s Irish experiences are essential to his writings, and provide all of the settings for his fiction and much of their subject matter. The early volume of short stories, Dubliners, is a penetrating analysis of the stagnation and paralysis of Dublin society. The stories incorporate epiphanies, a word used particularly by Joyce, by which he meant a sudden consciousness of the «soul» of a thing. Although many of Joyce’s works illustrate the rich tradition of the Catholic Church, his short story «Araby» displays his disaffection and loss of faith with the Church. The final and most famous story in the collection, «The Dead», was directed by John Huston as his last feature film, completed in 1987.

I found it strange that neither I nor the day seemed in a mourning mood
Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis
The Rev. James Flynn (formerly of St Catherine's Church, Meath Street), aged sixty-five years. R.I.P. The reading of the card persuaded me that he was dead and I was disturbed to find myself at check. Had he not been dead I would have gone into the little dark room behind the shop to find him sitting in his arm-chair by the fire, nearly smothered in his great-coat.
