James Joyce's Painful Case

This chapter discusses further features concerning James Joyce's story “A Painful Case”. It is able to observe the physical exercise of walking as being Joyce's favourite form of exercise as evidenced when Joyce endows his alter ego, James Duffy, with a similar taste for healthy exercise. The discussion also pinpoints the literary devices used in the story and examines the different drafts Joyce made while writing the story. The reading of the story, then, depends on aesthetic considerations. These are a recognition of the relationship between the songs, their spirit and their content, the relationship between their performers, and the manifold distinctions between life and art.

Keywords:   James Joyce, A Painful Case, James Duffy, literary devices, drafts, aesthetic considerations
