The Dead is a literature & fiction classic short story written in 1914 by Irish novelist and poet James Joyce. The classic short story centers on Gabriel Conroy, a university professor, on the night of the Morkan sisters' annual dance and dinner in the first week of January 1904, a celebration of the Feast of Epiphany. James Joyce contributed to the modernist avant-garde, and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the twentieth century. The Dead is a widely popular short story and it has been adapted into a 1967 one act play, a 1997 movie, and a 1999 Broadway musical. The Dead is the final short story in the 1914 anthology collection Dubliners by James Joyce. At 15,952 words, it was the longest story in the anthology collection.
