James Joyce wrote Dubliners to portray Dublin at the turn of the early 20th century. In Dubliners, faith and reason are represented using dark images and symbols. James Joyce uses these symbols to show the negative side of Dublin. In “The Sisters,” “The Boarding House,” and “The Dead” dark is expressed in many ways. James Joyce uses the light and dark form of symbolism in his imagination to make his stories come to life.
The book, “The Irish Way” by James R. Barrett is a masterpiece written to describe the life of Irish immigrants who went to start new lives in America after conditions at home became un-accommodative.

I have a mortal enemy, he harasses me for most of the year, he gets a sick sense of enjoyment from my singeing pain. My mortal enemy… the sun. Being remarkably pasty, every summer consists of ice cream, sports and scarlet red skin. Little did my enemy know, I had an ace in the hole, a little something I like to call sunscreen 50 spf, because strutting around in the typical 30 spf was a risk I was not willing to take. For all this tormentation for most of the year, I have only one thing to thank; something so meaningful that the agony is worthwhile, my strictly Irish genealogy.

Traditional Irish music is made with instruments such as the fiddle, the tin whistle, and the Irish bagpipes. It is performed at many pubs, and traditional songs are often sung there in the Irish language. Thousands of people participate in the country’s musical, dance, and storytelling events. The Irish’s daily life really depends on where you are, though. For example, Dublin is one of Europe’s most civilized and modern cities, while the Blasket Islands of Dingle Bay, which are off Ireland’s southwestern coast, seem to be a throwback to the earlier centuries with huge castles and rolling hills.
