Literatura Inglesa I (1830023)

The Dead: a short story written by James Joyce in 1914 and included in his book ”Dubliners”. The story
centres on Gabriel Conroy on the night of Morkan Sisters’ annual party. ”The Dead” develops towards a
moment of self-awareness which Joyce described as an epiphany. The narrative generally
concentrates on Gabriel’s insecurities, his social awkwardness, and the defensive way he copes with his
discomfort. The story culminates at the point when Gabriel discovers that, through years of marriage,
there was much he never knew of his wife’s past.
James Joyce: Irish novelist, known for his experimental use of language in works such as ”Ulysses” and
”Finnegans Wake”. Joyce’s technical innovations included the use of the interior monologue and a
complex network of symbols drawn from mythology, history and literature.
