JAMES JOYCE'S USAGE OF DICTION IN REPRESENTATION OF IRISH SOCIETY IN DUBLINERS: THE ANALYSIS OF "THE SISTERS" AND "THE DEAD" IN HISTORICAL CONTEXT

Abstract

Author(s): Esmaeel Najar DARONKOLAEE

In the present study the researcher argues the important role the diction play in Dubliners, especially in the first and the last stories, "The Sisters" and "The Dead." The researcher attempts to show how phraseology helped Joyce to carry the themes of decrepitude, stagnation, and paralysis in Irish society at the turning of the twentieth century, and how this collection emphasizes the significance of societal context in understanding Joyce's texts, and vice versa. The hope of this de-codification is to help readers having a clearer understanding of this collection of short stories, what happens beyond the text, and the commonalities prevailed in atmosphere of Dublin of 1900s. In order to fill in the concealed gaps in cryptic references of Joyce, etymological and symbolic functions of specific words, especially allusive ones, would be discussed in this article.
