This paper uses analysis of characters and plots to illustrate the theme of escape in James Joyce's collection of short stories. The paper explains that the escape theme can be seen on two levels and cites examples that demonstrate these levels.
From the Paper:"The character that James Joyce portrays in his collection of short stories, Dubliners, is attempting to escape unsatisfying conditions that he find himself in during childhood. In three of the stories, "Sisters," "The Encounter" and "Araby," the main character hopes to escape the pressures of society and in the case of the three stories he does escape. Yet while he escapes on the surface, the character does not break away from the internal feelings he has. Joyce leaves his character with the hope of escaping his oppressive environment, but without hope of escaping feelings that accompany death, monotony and the emotions that occur from awakening to the physical and mental attraction to girls."
