Symbolism/Imagery in James Joyce’s “The Boarding House” (A story in Dubliners)
The Boarding House (a story in Dubliners) by James Joyce is a rare piece of literature, which contains symbolism. This story is a study of mirrors, mirror-like characters and the self-revelation inherent in viewing one’s own image. The author has used color symbolism throughout the story. As in his other works Joyce has utilized his talents not merely as an author but also his expertise as a musician. This story also reflects the strange love-hate relationship that he had with Dublin.
