As a descendant of the Irish, this book meant a great deal to me. My own grandparents had many stories.

Post Re: Dubliners - "The Dead" (Story 15 of 15)
When I first came across the works of James Joyce, I was very unimpressed. Fifty pages of "Ullysses" was more than enough for me and "Finnegan's Wake" was thrown aside after a cursery glance, not to be revisited in this world and only fit for punishment in the next. "Dubliners" was much more my taste and I read it all through. I can't, at this distance in time, remember all the stories, but the one that is the subject of this thread, will forever stay in my mind and will be a favourite of mine well into the future. The story of a family divided by the politics of pre-independence Ireland reminds me of my parents generation, who also split apart, because of the civil war that followed the granting of independence, to that volatile celtic nation. "The Dead" is a tale that I have not read for nearly forty years now. The time to revisit it is overdue. Thanks for the reminder.

Hi Saffron,

I want to join in, but I haven't started the book yet. I'm also balancing a couple of projects right now. I'll be sure to join in at some point (perhaps in August). Sorry to be so iffy.
