Can you just check if everything is correct? Thank you.

1) Focus on the two recurrent themes in Joyce’s Dubliners and explain what all the characters have in common.
They focus on two recurrent themes: paralysis and epiphany.
2) Paralysis can be described as a condition which is characteristic to modern man as a result of being tied to limited cultural and social traditions.
3) All the Dubliners are entrapped by a sense of stagnation resulting from different forces; the frustrating circumstances of an unfulfilling job, the unhappiness and loneliness caused by an unsuccessful marriage or lack of friendship.
4) However, they accept their situation passively either because they are unaware of it or because they are unable to break the chains that bind them.
5)They are spiritually weak and afraid people. The second theme, epiphany, describes a sudden revelation in the everyday life of the characters caused by a trivial gesture, an external event or a bad situation which leads them to a more profound understanding of themselves and the situation in which they live.
6) The characters, however, don’t act upon this realization but passively continue with their lives as before.
