If you can't get well, die. 15 The two brothers, however, also had trouble being as generoushearted to their dying mother as they would have wished. James had to refuse her request that he take communion (//129), and Stanislaus's rejection of Catholicism had become even more violent than his older brother's. When Mrs Joyce's brother John knelt at her deathbed As All of Dublin: The Years of Youth, 1882-1904 17 in her last moments, while she was unconscious and therefore un aware, he saw that her sons were not praying and gestured for them to kneel down.
11 Such temerity aside, in fact Dubliners had earlier had its origin in a suggestion by Russell that Joyce write a 'simple' story for the Irish Homestead. 'It is easily earned money', he assured him, 'if you can write fluently and don't mind playing to the common understand ing and liking for once in a way. You can sign any name you like as a pseudonym' (//163); when The Sisters' was published 13 August 1904, Joyce signed it 'Stephen Daedalus'. Surprisingly, he was able to publish two other stories - 'Eveline' and 'After the Race' - in this journal with a largely rural audience, until complaints from readers forced the editor to stop accepting Joyce's work (// 165).
In 1909 he confessed to Padraic Colum, 'I am not a poet'. In retrospect Colum remarks that the poems 'seem to come out of a young musician's rather than a young poet's world' (Colum 55), just as Joyce had come to feel that the collection was 'a young man's book' (he was all of twenty-five when he made that comment in 1907), although 'some of them are pretty enough to be put to music' (LII 219). So it is not surprising that Stanislaus's original suggestion that the volume be called Chamber Music was accepted (Diary 28).
