—Joyce ... The Remains of the Day is told in the first-person narration of an English butler named Stevens. In July 1956, Stevens decides to take a six- day road trip to the West Country of England—a region to the west of Darlington Hall, the house in which Stevens resides and has worked as a butler for thirty-four years. "The Remains of the Day" tells the story of Stevens' trip to the sea, and what he finds there.
