Study Help Practice Projects


1. Write a short story, set in your hometown, in the style of one of the stories from Dubliners.

2. Using a map of Dublin (hint: find one with a detailed index), trace Lenehan's route around the city in "Two Gallants." Although some of the pubs and restaurants mentioned no longer exist, almost all the streets and other landmarks can still be located.

3. Imagine that you are writing a screenplay for a two-hour movie combining "The Sisters," "An Encounter," and "Araby." You are limited to about 120 script pages. Which of the stories' scenes, characters, and events would you include and exclude? How would you arrange the material for maximum dramatic effect?
