The Dead’s original rhetoric merges here into a work of art worthy of the short story’s shadowy and frosted themes. In this art print, snow falls mutedly upon a cold and lonely street. In the background, buildings rise up with a steady sameness, window upon window lit up but keeping their warmth closed behind glass and stone. A single streetlamp is shown here casting its solitary light upon the cold, alabaster ground; shadows form around each ray, fighting with the flickering glow for a chance to bring its dead back to the world of light. In this illustration, a silent and invisible battle is underway as shadow and light stand meshed together vying for control of the gloomy and freezing dusk.
The Dead remains as one of Joyce’s most famous short works and continues to chill readers with each and every line. Here, these same somber words and phrases are used to form an image which thrills with its quiet strength and arctic embrace.
