This paper analyzes and reviews the portrayal of the two main female characters in this short story taken from Joyce's famous collection of short stories, "Dubliners". The paper explains how Joyce has painted the female characters in this story, and in all the short stories in "Dubliners", as predators out to trap any man into marriage. The paper then compares this portrayal to Joyce's portrayal of the male characters in "The Gallant" and shows how Joyce's message is that, while men are only after one thing with women, namely sex, women also only want one thing, marriage or the man's money, and this is a more base and elemental need.
