And from there . . .
We pull out our 3x3 decks from Joyce's Dubliners stories. (If you weren't here the other day, you need to finish building yours.)
We will experiment a bit with those decks as we try to uncover common threads and big thinking across the four stories.
Then we deep dive in Joyce's actual language, uncovering evidence of his style in across these four stories.
- Fusion of Fiction w Reality
- Real places, real buildings, even real people appear amongst the fiction
- appeals to all 5 senses
- Free Indirect Discourse
- a particular style of stream of consciousness
- fluid movement between narrator and character
- Manipulation of Language and Aesthetics
- experiments with word play, structure, linguistics, genre
All of this in the service of writing brilliant "Frankliners" short stories and narrative poetry.
What am I talking about? THIS!

Req'd Post: Create a visual 3x3 of the town (or county) where you live. What does that place mean to you? How can you capture your relationship with your town through pictures? Consider taking or drawing/painting your own. Give considerable thought to how you arrange them.
