The religious symbolisms in The Sisters, by James Joyce.
According to Joyce himself, his intention was to "write a chapter of the moral history of [his] country and [he] chose Dublin for the scene because the city seemed to [b]e the center of paralysis". True to his goal, each of the fifteen stories composing Dubliners are tales of disappointment, darkness, captivity, frustration, and flaw.
