Abstract [en]

Nationalism and religion seem inseparable in the two texts "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" and "Dubliners". Therefore, the purpose of this essay is to determine if the characters are able to fit into a society even though they do not follow the strict religious rules and the social norms. The main characters have difficulty in developing an individual identity since both society and church exercise a restraining influence on the characters. On some of the characters in the texts, alienation follows as a result of not abiding by the rules of society. In order to fit into society a few of the characters decide to disregard their true feelings.
