    About " James Joyce "

  • James Joyce

    James Joyce, Irish novelist, noted for his experimental use of language in such works as Ulysses 1922 and Finnegans Wake 1939 Joyce s technical innovations in the art of the novel include an extensive use of interior monologue he used a complex network of symbolic parallels drawn from the mythology, history, and literature, and created a unique language of invented words, puns, and allusions James Joyce was born in Dublin, on February 2, 1882, as the son of John Stanislaus Joyce, an impoverished gentleman, who had failed in a distillery business and tried all kinds of professions, including politics and tax collecting Joyce s mother, Mary Jane Murray, was ten years younger than her husband She was an accomplished pianist, whose life was dominated by the Roman Catholic Church In spite of their poverty, the family struggled to maintain a solid middle class facade.From the age of six Joyce, was educated by Jesuits at Clongowes Wood College, at Clane, and then at Belvedere College in Dublin 1893 97 In 1898 he entered the University College, Dublin Joyce s first publication was an essay on Ibsen s play When We Dead Awaken It appeared in the Fortnightly Review in 1900 At this time he also began writing lyric poems.After graduation in 1902 the twenty year old Joyce went to Paris, where he worked as a journalist, teacher and in other occupations under difficult financial conditions He spent a year in France, returning when a telegram arrived saying his mother was dying Not long after her death, Joyce was traveling again He left Dublin in 1904 with Nora Barnacle, a chambermaid who he married in 1931 Joyce published Dubliners in 1914, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in 1916, a play Exiles in 1918 and Ulysses in 1922 In 1907 Joyce had published a collection of poems, Chamber Music.At the outset of the First World War, Joyce moved with his family to Z rich In Z rich Joyce started to develop the early chapters of Ulysses, which was first published in France because of censorship troubles in the Great Britain and the United States, where the book became legally available only in 1933 In March 1923 Joyce started in Paris his second major work, Finnegans Wake, suffering at the same time chronic eye troubles caused by glaucoma The first segment of the novel appeared in Ford Madox Ford s transatlantic review in April 1924, as part of what Joyce called Work in Progress The final version was published in 1939.Some critics considered the work a masterpiece, though many readers found it incomprehensible After the fall of France in WWII, Joyce returned to Z rich, where he died on January 13, 1941, still disappointed with the reception of Finnegans Wake.


  • This is my favourite short story from Joyce’s excellent collection Dubliners because it shows the development of Western to Eastern perceptions in only just a few decades. And, not only that, the narrator grows from his initial state of ignorance and develops as a person, both intellectually and emotionally in just a few pages. It’s a great piece of writing. Previously, all we have had with Victorian literature is a racist representation of the Orient. They saw it as underdeveloped compared [...]

  • Araby, James Joyce"Araby" is a short story by James Joyce published in his 1914 collection Dubliners.تاریخ نخستین خوانش: هفدهم نوامبر سال 2015 میلادیاین کتاب گویا با عنوان بازار عربی ، با ترجمه: محمدصادق رییسی، در 25 ص، از سوی نشر سولار، به چاپ رسیده، اما هنوز ترجمه ی فارسی را ندیده اما. شربیانی

  • The most prevalent irony in this short story is the contrast between the dreamlike type of love he feels for the young woman, and the reality of his unrealistically high expectations. The metaphor for this irony is the bazaar Araby, after which the text is appropriately named. The prospect of attending Araby became a feverish obsession for the young narrator the minute the object of his affection expressed interest in the bazaar. When she told him she could not go, he made it his mission to atte [...]

  • Even though this beautifully worded story ends on a sad note, its life still goes on. After all there is nothing tragic happened to whatever he has with the girl. She is still there, he will again see her. It is just an unlucky moment that makes him feel unwanted at the bazaar, too soon he gives up and wallows in resentment. But we know him better, we have seen very definitive streaks of a romancer in him– “My eyes were often full of tears (I could not tell why) and at times a flood from my [...]

  • Gazing up into the darkness I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity; andmy eyes burned with anguish and anger.

  • You know, I think we've all had our own araby. Your career can be your araby, or your marriage, or your first love etc. What amazes me is how universal the theme of araby is. The juxtaposition between dreams vs reality is certainly spot-on and it acknowledges the reality that our own araby may not be as grand or as beautiful as how we expect it to be when we get there.If you analyze the story superficially, you may find it cliche, but if you look at the sub-text or the hidden meaning behind the [...]

  • But my body was like a harp and her words and gestures were like fingers running upon the wires. I have never once thought that I would love a text, given to me in English lessons. But this, this is something special.As short as it is, Joyce skilfully paints an ethereal image which is so simple yet, deep, down to its core. The delicacy of his words in every sentence to the eccentricity and depth of each character, succinctly manifests a thought provoking message by the end.One of, if not the, mo [...]

  • This short and powerful story is told by a first person narrator, a young boy. The narrative contains beautiful metaphors and descriptions, with much introspection and attention to feelings. The narrator has fallen in love with a neighborhood girl, possibly slightly older than he is, and his thoughts and emotions revolve around her. Promising to bring her something from Araby, the bazaar in town for a few days, he asks permission of his uncle to go to the bazaar on Saturday evening, permission t [...]

  • A very strange story in my opinion. Pretty dark in some parts, there are some interesting and redeeming parts but all and all it was just okay.UPDATE:I had to read this a second time, good thing it was short but I wanted to see if the feeling it gave me was from the book or was just the feeling I had at the time. And it was definitely from the book. Though it was an uneasy feeling; any story that can evoke such feeling deserves another star than the 3 I gave it just for the story.

  • “Gazing up into the darkness I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity; and my eyes burned with anguish and anger.”

  • . I did not know whether I would ever speak to her or not or, if I spoke to her, how I could tell her of my confused adoration. Adoration and foolishness mixed together in a short story. He is expecting too much from a girl who is a figment of his imagination. I believe that expectation is the root of all heartaches and this further cemented my belief. I can see why Araby is adored by the readers. The frustration of first love and adoration. The pain of lost love that is never there.

  • The "enchanted days" of a boy comes to an end when he comes face to face with the material realities of the Eastern enchantment of the "Araby" bazaar. Self deluding blindness and self inflating romanticism terminates in disillusionment and self disdain. The language of the text is really beautiful.

  • The short story with a pleasuring yourself scene which doesn't seem like a pleasuring oneself scene because it's so poetic.

  • The unnamed protagonist in "Araby" is a boy who is just starting to come into his sexual identity. Through his first-person narration, we are immersed at the start of the story in the drab life that people live on North Richmond Street, which seems to be illuminated only by the verve and imagination of the children who, despite the growing darkness that comes during the winter months, insist on playing "until [their:] bodies glowed." Even though the conditions of this neighbourhood leave much to [...]

  • The boy lives in a neighborhood full of houses that face each other, and Catholic children who fill the streets with noise. The boy is consumed by a beautiful girl, as well as her presence, beauty, and yearning to go to the bazaar.When he mounts the staircase in the house, “the high cold empty gloomy rooms [liberate him]…” representing the Holy Spirit that dwells within the body that Joyce describes in an unflattering manner.The journey to fulfill the Lord’s Will is an independent one. T [...]

  • Joyce had a bizarre affinity with language ,he didn't follow the casual style of language , he was adamantly in quest of a new style and did his best to come up with something that would break the monotony of ordinary language and make us rather conscious of what we emanate as language from our mind rather than the language deeply rooted in our unconscious . This notion of his might be a backbone for all of his works . In this short story we see a young boy who is kind of dreaming of going to a [...]

  • Araby is a short story that deals with a young boy's life in Ireland. It largely focuses on religion and juxtaposes holiness and profanity. The young boy is in love with his friend's sister and goes to the bizarre, Araby, in order to impress her because she cannot attend. In the end, the boy realizes that the bizarre is ordinary and all of his dreams and hopes about it have fallen short. Thus, Araby taught me the importance of juxtaposition. Because Joyce paired things together, like sex and lov [...]

  • The protagonist is a coming-of-age kid who lives too much in his head and we see him faced with disappointment and anger. I think everyone can relate to how he feels, whether towards his love interest or the expectations he puts up on the Araby bazaar. Aren't all the kids like that?I loved the emotions it evoked in me through Joyce's elegant use of words and literary expressions. This is probably my favourite line: "But my body was like a harp and her words and gestures were like fingers running [...]

  • Araby by James Joyce4 starsThis short story follows a young Irish boy going through his first infatuation. This is a beautiful written story that spoke to me deeply. I personally took away that life will cause you to face hardships, but your hardships mean nothing because in the big World you are just a nameless boy or girl in the vastness of the world. I really enjoyed this one. I'm definitely going to be looking into other works by Joyce, particularly his short stories.

  • This story did not vibe with me, and I barely understood it. Joyce is pretty infuriating to my typical taste in literature from what I’ve seen so far, but I am now deterred from reading any of his longer works.

  • Sometimes we love the idea of something more than the thing itself. This has to be one of my all time favorite short stories. Definitely worth a read.

  • Araby by James JoyceMESMERIZINGThis is an extremely beautiful short story by the writer who scholars consider to be the best creator of English literature, for at least the 20th century. There would also be Marcel Proust to consider for the top spot, and for me, Proust is the greatest author that I have read, albeit he wrote in French and is not a contender for the English literature trophy.I have read in How Proust Can Change Your Life by Alain de Botton that Proust and Joyce met at a party and [...]

  • 2.5 out of 5 starsThis story was just very underwhelming. My English course is finally beginning our section on short stories and films, and I was so excited, but then we had to go and read this and ruin my good mood.I know, I know, that's a little dramatic, but in all honesty it's the truth. I went into this story expecting for it to be interesting in the very least, and it didn't even deliver on that. The entire story is basically about a young Irish boy who has been obsessed with his friends [...]

  • Topically speaking, subtle references to clerical child abuse and homosexuality make Araby as relevant now as it was when it was published in the first part of the twentieth century. Thematically also, the story takes on contemporary relevance: The story is a first-person narrative about a boy who leaves the confines of his religiously-framed childhood and ventures to the exotic land of 'Araby', really a travelling fair/marketplace. Along the way, he discovers that there is no romantic ideal tha [...]

  • Here is a writer with real stories and a way with words. "The career of our play brought us through the dark muddy lanes behind the houses where we ran the gauntlet of the rough tribes from the cottages, to the back doors of the dark dripping gardens where odours arose from the ashpits, to the dark odorous stables where a coachman smoothed and combed the horse or shook music from the buckled harness.”So much in a line!

  • This was a very interesting coming of age story. It perfectly highlights the confusion of a young boy who is reaching the point in his life where everything changes. I thought it was well-written and highly relatable. But, it could've been done better. In fact, I read John Boyne's version of "Araby" as well, and I thought it was better than the original. Maybe it's because it was written more recently, but nonetheless, it was a perfectly crafted story and deserved 5/5 stars.

  • Picture me not impressed. I read an interesting analysis about this though :PI guess short stories are not really my thing lol.

  • The idea of houses being depicted as conscious entities is similar to Woolf's depiction of letters in her Jacob's room and similar as well to the Italian Futurist plays where jacket and an apron are having a conversation. All these are post 1900 ideas and themes. the thing about Joyce that I completely respect is his talent to make language beautiful and at the same time ambiguous. As for the boy in the story, he probably a decent boy ans well as the people around him as stated in there in the b [...]
