    Favourite stories of Joyce's Dubliners

    which are your favourite stories (or which is your favourite story) of Dubliners, by James Joyce?

    I would have to say A painful case, The dead, Araby.

    Most definitely "A Little Cloud" - very psychological, reflective, introspective, and harsh - precisely what made the Lost Generation what it seemed, and why James Joyce, in my opinion, seemed a part of it.

    Cool I liked The Dead ....

    and also the movie. I think it was the last movie directed by John Huston before (obviously) his death.

    A Little Cloud.

    As he crossed Grattan Bridge he looked down the river towards the lower quays and pitied the poor stunted houses. They seemed to him a band of tramps, huddled together along the river-banks, their old coats covered with dust and soot, stupefied by the panorama of sunset and waiting for the first chill of night to bid them arise, shake themselves and begone.
