Dubliner is logically set in the Dublin city of Ireland which was less cosmopolitan compared to a number of other cities in Western Europe when the work was done. The city was not sophisticated when Joyce did the work. Joyce presents a number of stories in the book and the analysis in this paper will analyze and compare two characters in the play. The paper will analyze Gabriel Conroy “The dead” and Farrington Counterparts “(Joyce, 1926). It will also consider Eveline in analyzing the two characters in terms of social status, motivation, self-image, impression on (and of) others, family relationships, among other variables.
Gabriel Conroy is one of the last protagonists found in Joyce’s work. He embodies some of the characters that are portrayed in other stories which include acute class, frustrated love, short temper, social awkwardness, and consciousness. Gabriel is presented as a character with a number of faces, a loving family man who brings a lot of joy with a cheerful presence. He is involved in performing a number of masculine jobs. He is however unable to forge a reasonable connection and the attempts to do so become offensive and awkward. Through the conversation, he defenselessly stumbles through the entire conversation about the plan of going on with cycling. He is perceived as a man whose life mainly struggles to remain relevant to the world around him. He is presented as a social performer. His unease with unbridled thoughts and feelings is palpable though he is forced to face it throughout the story. He is a representation of the intersection between personal confrontation and social isolation.
Farrington on the other hand is presented as one of the darkest characters in the story. He violently rebels against the daily boring life. His life involves a repetitive mechanical, paralyzing repetition on daily basis as a copy clerk with takes which are mind-numbing with the uncompromising bosses who cause rapid .rage over him. During the day of counterpart, he unleashes on the innocent beings of his world, the innocent children. His main problem started when he was unable to realize the maddening circularity that was defined in his days. He has no boundaries between different parts of his life. his work-life affects his family life and therefore his life becomes worse instead of making it better.
