The objective of this thesis is to examine the intricate correlation between nationalism and Irish identity as depicted in James Joyce's Dubliners. This study is exploration to the interplay between nationalistic sentiments and the concept of identity in a selection of stories from the collection. It seeks to analyse how James Joyce use these themes to critically examine the socioeconomic and cultural frameworks of Dublin during the early 1900s. The present thesis examines the influence of British colonisation on the formation of Irish identity and its societal ramifications. This study undertakes a comprehensive examination of characters, situations, and storytelling approaches to explore the nuanced depictions of nationalism and Irish identity. Moreover, this study examines the influence of these themes on the formation of both individual and community experiences. Through a comprehensive analysis of textual evidence, historical context, and literary criticism, this scholarly investigation presents a nuanced comprehension of James Joyce's Dubliners. By delving into the intricate dynamics between nationalism, Irish identity, and the human condition, this study sheds light on the multifaceted interplay within the literary work.
