Counterparts

by James Joyce · Advanced

‘Counterparts’ is about an alcoholic husband and father who cares more for a drink than he does for his job. We can almost taste the whiskey and smell the pubs he drinks it in, as Joyce tells us of his night out in Ireland’s capital. At the same time, he explores an anti-hero who lives for the moment and for himself (3,820 words).
