ILSHS Volume 54, ISSN 2300-2697
Collection of short stories of James Joyce in a book under the title of “Dubliners” (1914) is a collection composing of 15 short stories, which topic of all of them is living in Dublin (stories about death, love, live in school, etc.). Short story of “sisters” narrates feelings of a boy about death of a priest. The first woman, who is afraid of love, a mother in law speaks about ambition and destroys her daughter. It ispainful narrative of a single man, who leaves the woman he loves and the woman finds in the time of her death that he has been in his loneliness all his life. Accordingly, it could be mentioned that the author has selected in his short stories a style that Flober has been its establisher. Hence, stories in the collection of Dubliners have been strongly image-based and have been less relied on storied actions. (Stein et al, 2008)The present study has analyzed two short stories of the mentioned collection under the titles of “The Dead Persons” and “The sisters\s”. In this analysis, the author has considered internal modes and feelings of characters of the story. Process of analyzing the two works has been firstly related to analysis of every story separately and then has been related to goals and destinies of creator of the work and totally his collection of short stories. Finally, the study has considered investigation and analysis of short stories of James Joyce, which analysts and critics of his works have presented it and it is that Dubliners should be considered as an origin and generality. Considering stories of this artist separately can’t be a competent work, since as it is obvious in this collection, the author has been tended to achieve a specific goal through considering a certain order for these stories.
