Lit Paper Ms. Sanchez The Dead The short story “The Dead” is the final story in the “Dubliners” by James Joyce. It is different than all other stories found in the story. While in “The Sisters” a young boy is affected by the death of a “father figure” in his life. While the two women in the stories in “Eveline” and “Clay” are distraught because they are haunted by death. But in the story “The Dead” it explains how someone’s death can affect someone’s heart and future experiences. Throughout this whole story Gretta is reminded of the mad whom she once loved, which is different than any of the ways death is brought up in the other short stories Joyce wrote in this book. While the title “The Dead” represents her very memories of the man who had passed. It also shows how death can effect our lives even long after our loved ones are gone. Michael Furey who was Gretta’s love and the Morkan’s brother all affect the lives who are still living.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
