This chapter discusses the presence of Wordsworth in the library of Mr. Duffy, the main character in James Joyce's “A Painful Case”. The other book featured and identified in the character's library is the Maynooth Catechism. The juxtaposition of these two volumes in the narrative, even though separated by the rest of his unitemized collection, implies something about the process of Mr. Duffy's spiritual or intellectual growth.

Keywords:   Wordsworth, Mr. Duffy, James Joyce, A Painful Case, Maynooth Catechism, juxtaposition, narrative, spiritual growth, intellectual growth
