With him was a dapper, cagey thirty-three-yearold six foot tall, medium-size man with eyes that remained mysteriously hidden behind shades. Both of his hands were anchored on his hips‒ the man was Sean McGinty. Also with Linzyc were Hanna and Gellman. Giving the good looking, red-headed Irishman a good once-over, Lane was happy to see that he had a wedding ring on. He was garbed in a fashionable, blue Nike sweat suit and smelled like he fell into a bottle of…

    and great change in my opinion. The disillusion of identity here confuses Evelyn and fears she will become lost at sea with her identity. In this moment at the north wall she seems passive, questioning her identity yet too fearful to make a decision to stay home or escape. The identity crisis here and the fear of the unknown endures that Evelyn does not have a decision the boat leaves with her love on it ; yet she remains paralysed at the north wall on the land not moving in any direction.…

    "It doesn’t matter who you are or what you are. Death is going to come to us all no matter what…we 're like a flower. We come up, we flourish, we die off.

    Throughout his short story “A Little Cloud,” James Joyce considers the ramifications of remaining sedentary in Dublin through his characters Little Chandler and Ignatius Gallaher. That Little Chandler and Gallaher seem so antithetical, despite their proximity and similar upbringings, invites the reader to question whether Joyce intends to insinuate that success is only possible outside of Dublin, and that ambition and Celtic nationalism are incongruous. Having left Ireland at twenty years old,…

    Joyce’s portrayal of Dublin in Dubliners is certainly not one of praise or fanfare. Rather, Joyce’s Dublin is a slumbering and pathetic portrayal of a metropolis in which her citizens cannot exercise the ability to break free from the city’s frigid grasp. Therefore, the Dubliners struggle to carve out a distinct identity that contains meaningful aspects of human life. Somerville states that “Dublin has suffered a sickness of the heart,” an assentation that certainly captures the undertones of…

    Similarly, the expulsion of Bowen’s characters, as they struggle to keep themselves intact in a world that seems to be fragmenting around them, exhibit the danger and destruction that is present in London. Both narratives successfully illustrate a lost sense of identity, not only in the lives of characters, but also in the novel as a whole.

    ago. Written in 1729, in an era of Irish history where Protestant absentee landlords ruled the roost, and Roman Catholic peasants left to starve at their hands, it is a scathing attack on the British establishment present in Ireland at the time. Swift empathised with the horrific scenes of poverty and decay of Catholics he witnessed on the streets of Dublin city where he lived, and felt compelled to scribe a sarcastic proposal, suggesting that selling and eating Roman Catholic children would…
