A Single Multi-Answer For All Araby Important Questions
(You can write this answer for every Question about Araby Short Story)
[Passion] In “Araby” James Joyce himself is a central character of his story. He is in a hot youth and cloudy mind which is full of foolish noise. His stream of consciousness becomes obvious when he tries to tame his wild heart at a bright butterfly’s loving hand, waist and neck. He lives in a world of illusion. The destructive dream of love becomes the working week, Sunday rest, his noon, his midnight, his talk, and his soul which full-blown him a poisonous demon. He says, “But my body was like a harp and her words and gestures were like fingers, running upon the wires” and “O, love! O, love!”
[Visit] Little candle throws her beam on Araby and it begins to blaze. The desire of the moth for the Araby star made his Saturday Night a tears night, walls night, thumbs night fright night, and shatter the night. He with his shadow feels buried in the deep dark silent tomb of Araby. So, under the pressure of objective reality, his subjective feelings were broken down and he said, “Gazing into the darkness, I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity”. The writer just points out the mental process of a young boy in civilization instead of any moral.
Thus I conclude that.
