4.0 von 5 Sternen I never thought I'd like Joyce 14. Dezember 2013
Von Franziska
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
But I really do. The text propells you along an evening with friends and leaves you with the question: What kind of power do your "dead" have over you?

Format:Hörkassette
Ich bin total begeister von diesem Buch, es enthält, wie man dem Titel entnehmen kann, mehrere kleine Stories. Für jeden geschmack ist etwas dabei; Romantik,Tragik usw.
Kein Kate Mulgrew Fan sollte um dieses Hörspiel rumkommen, ein absolutes muss!!!
Ihre Stimme ist grossartig, wie immer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen James Joyce read by Richard Setlock 19. Juli 2000
Format:Hörkassette
I have listened to Setlock's readings, this one in particular, many times. He is very close to Joyce's voice, in interpretation and execution. The readings are masterly. This recording just grows and grows on you.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful Case Study Collection of Literary Masterpiece 10. Oktober 2004
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I've found this to be the most useful of all the "case study" texts I've tried from both St. Martin's/Bedford and Norton. The primary text is sufficiently contained and the representative critical methodologies presented clearly enough to introduce students to both literature and literary theory without overwhelming them. Moreover, "The Dead" is capable of repaying the close and observant reader with a Joycean "epiphany" perhaps not surpassed by any other literary text (the last several paragraphs, especially, require attention to the developing, altering meanings of each and every word).

I have one caveat: the essay representing feminist criticism I frankly find baffling. The writer, apparently trying to have her cake and eat it too, manages to indict Joyce as a sexist while applauding the story as a critique of sexism and patriarchal hegemony! It does not "seem" to occur to her that Joyce may be removed from his central character, Gabriel, or that her evidence for Gabriel's male arrogance may actually be Joyce's idea from the start. A close reading of the character certainly suggests an ironic portrayal--everything that appears to be in Gabriel's favor is exposed through Joyce's subtle language as self-delusion. The feminist critic, however, impugns Joyce by suggesting that his "intentions" are less honorable than the meaning of the text itself!

Perhaps the writer is overstating a point in order to provide a better example of the type of critical approach she was asked to represent for the purposes of this anthology. I know that I will suggest as much should I again have occasion to use this particular essay.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An Evocative Christmas Evening 15. November 2004
Von Plume45 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Set in early 20th century Dublin this short story was the last in a collection called The Dubliners by native son, James Joyce. Despite the mournful title there is no murder nor mysterious death involved in this seemingly simple piece, set in an old-fashioned Society home during the Christmas season. Instead this proves an introspective tale from the viewpoint of middle-aged Gabriel, favorite nephew of his respected aunts who host an annual dinner party. The role of music and performers is debated among their many lively guests.

Gabriel's required speech during dinner praises the Irish tradition of warm hospitality. But something causes his wife, Gretta, to hark back to her girlhood and her first love--whose poignant memory threatens his plans for connubial bliss in their hotel room. Delicate as the snowflakes which blot out the city landscape, barely plotted with delicious hints of unexpressed emotion, The Dead transports readers to a different gas-lit age, where beauty and grace are subtly exhibited and passionately sought after. Joyce reminds us that music possesses the power to evoke the past and serve as a catalyst both for pain and pleasure. This may be read in one sitting, but don't miss the author's other reminiscences.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Masterpiece 10. Januar 2012
Von H. F. Corbin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Reynolds Price called it the greatest short story written in English. Carson McCullers reread it every Christmas. I have read James Joyce's masterpiece "The Dead" from his book DUBLINERS at least a half dozen times. I just reread it, and as usual, it made my eyes burn. It is one of those rare stories that, when you finish it, you call up those people you love and those who love literature to make sure they have read it too.

The story, set in Dublin, covers one evening during the Christmas season when two sisters, the Misses Morkan, Julia and Kate, hold their annual dance, the event of the season and not to be missed. Their nephew Gabriel and his wife Gretta are of course invited. Gabriel is pompous and, to use a current expression, full of himself as he gives his usual speech at the event. The last 4 or 5 pages of this rather long-- although there is not one sentence too many-- story contain some of the most moving language you will encounter in English. Joyce makes a sad, profound statement about love, life and death and asks the question of how well do we really know those people closest to us.

The story became the director John Huston's last film by the same name (1987). He cast his daughter Anjelica as Gretta. Tenor Frank Patterson, who left us far too soon, sang that glorious song "The Lass of Aughrim" in the movie that is almost as good as Joyce's story.

Everyone who loves literature should read this perfect story.

This is a most beautiful story, so well written and enchanting that you are completely taken away to another time and place where you meet people you hope actually lived because they will live on in you. Beautiful a must read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written 6. Juni 2011
Von Bookworm2 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The book is well-written. Not only is "The Dead" included, but five critics give their perspectives on the story, such as historicism, reader-response criticism, etc. You will learn about the rule of reading, if that is something new to you as well as many of literary terms and concepts.
