James Joyce’s Dubliners, published in 1914, is a collection of fifteen short stories that portray a memorable array of characters in the early 20th century. Joyce’s ambivalence toward Dublin and its residents emerges through the stories, which are highly varied in character and plot, and, unlike Joyce’s later works, fully accessible to readers. We will read and discuss eleven of the stories. The course will include an on-line discussion forum and a weekly Zoom session. The teacher has recorded a very short video about the course: https://vimeo.com/458991493. Required Book: James Joyce, Dubliners—available free and on-line with Project Gutenberg. Paul Kalkstein studied James Joyce’s works as a Princeton undergraduate and taught Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man at Phillips Academy, Andover.
