About book Araby (Dubliners) (2000)

In Araby, Joyce writes of a boy falling in love with the sister of his friend, but fails in his quest to buy her a worthy gift from the Araby bazaar. In this short story Joyce tells of a young man coming of age, the pain that often comes when one encounters love in reality instead of its elevated form, and innocence. Joyce's prose always paints a picture, his words a paintbrush, his story the canvas. The protagonist is a coming-of-age kid who lives too much in his head and we see him faced with disappointment and anger. I think everyone can relate to how he feels, whether towards his love interest or the expectations he puts up on the Araby bazaar. Aren't all the kids like that?I loved the emotions it evoked in me through Joyce's elegant use of words and literary expressions. This is probably my favourite line: "But my body was like a harp and her words and gestures were like fingers running upon the wires."
