This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on James Joyce's book Dubliners. It describes the ways Joyce felt estranged from the prevalent power in Ireland of his times, which came primarily in the form of the Roman Catholic Church and the British Empire. The chapter highlights his opposition to literary revival, and suggests that Dubliners was intended to mirror the anxieties and hopes of the powerless in Ireland during his time.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Dubliners, Ireland, Roman Catholic Church, British Empire, literary revival, powerless
