This chapter discusses Chamber Music, which was Joyce's first creative work. It looks at Joyce's own original ordering of the songs of Chamber Music, which is considered to be important to understanding them as a whole and in relation to “A Painful Case”. The discussion then shifts to “A Painful Case”, with highlights the three cases of pain as allusion to the blatant depiction of the emotional disability of Mr. Duffy and the meanings behind the words in the story title.
