La versione ebook della fortunata collana Short Stories permette al lettore un'inedita esperienza di lettura, passando dal testo in lingua originale al testo in italiano in un rapido click e ascoltando il racconto audio in inglese, disponibile in streaming gratuito sul sito short-­stories. L'opera è arricchita da note sui termini ed espressioni idiomatiche. Il titolo stesso della short story è quanto mai indicativo: il termine grace, “grazia”, evoca infatti in primo luogo la grazia di Dio ma, come si capirà dalle parole del gesuita Padre Purdon nell’ultima scena, ha un altro significato: nel mondo del commercio e degli affari grace designa infatti la “dilazione” che si accorda a un debitore per permettergli di regolare il suo debito. Nel corso del racconto, d’altra parte, è evocato più volte, ambiguamente, il rapporto tra commercio e religione: i protagonisti mostrano tutti, chi più chi meno, un compiacimento nel mescolare i due ambiti e una incapacità quasi totale nel considerare . . .

The author's biography is included in this version.

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.

The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-­understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence, and maturity.

THERE was no hope for him this time: it was the third stroke. Night after night I had passed the house (it was vacation time) and studied the lighted square of window: and night after night I had found it lighted in the same way, faintly and evenly. If he was dead, I thought, I would see the reflection of candles on the darkened blind for I knew that two candles must be set at the head of a corpse. He had often said to me: "I am not long for this world,­" and I had thought his words idle. Now I knew they were true. Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euclid and the word simony in the Catechism. But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work.
Old Cotter was sitting at the fire, smoking, when I came downstairs to supper. While my aunt was . . .

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-­garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-­story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916).

One of Ireland’s most famous writers was James Joyce, a novelist and poet who’s best known for his avant garde classic Ulysses, which was inspired by The Odyssey but written in a completely modern, stream of conscience way. Joyce was also acclaimed for his poetry, journalism, and novels like A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and unreadable. In a famous 1933 court decision, Judge John M. Woolsey declared it an emetic book--­although he found it sufficiently unobscene to allow its importation into the United States--­and Virginia Woolf was moved to decry James Joyce's "cloacal obsession.­" None of these adjectives, however, do the slightest justice to the novel. To this day it remains the modernist masterpiece, in which the . . .
