Original book
"Dubliners"
by James Joyce
 


The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  The Dead
This is the last short story in James Joyce's "Dubliners." Set at a party in 1904 Dublin during the early days of Sinn Fein, the story subtly exposes the hypocrisy of those Irish, who except for their Catholic religion, talk, dress, and behave exactly like the British, all the while decrying the "West Britons" as traitorous to Ireland. The party takes place on the day of Epiphany in the Christian calendar. Look closely for an epiphany in each of the characters. Link to reviews
