Short Story Reads: A Little Cloud by James Joyce


A Little Cloud from the anthology, Dubliners is a common-place story, yet a brilliant and most-articulate one. Written by James Joyce (February 2, 1882 - January 13, 1941) a lot of people can identify with it as it is about individualism and the individualistic. It is also about  bettering one's circumstances and achieving one's dreams. The protagonist of this story, Little Chandler from Dublin is about to meet his friend Gallaher who has made it to the numero-uno spot in the world of journalism in London. While he is upbeat about meeting the latter, what follows is his age-old remorse at not having enough spunk to change his situation.
