This paper explains that James Joyce's novel "Dubliners" can be viewed from the standpoint of Joyce's own autobiographical mind. The paper specifically reveals the parallel themes and contrasting ideas of two stories in this novel, 'Eveline' and 'Araby', and compares the character of the narrator in 'Araby' and Eveline in the story 'Eveline'. The paper concludes with an analysis of the relevance of these stories and Joyce's whole body of work in contemporary fiction.

From the Paper:

"Primarily, one must review the narrator in the story Araby. The narrator in this story is grappling with a new identity as he enters adulthood. At first, he seems encouraged and engaged in the adult community through his activities of spying and collecting information. However, as the story progresses, it becomes clear that the narrator is becoming increasingly frustrated with the notion of leaving his childhood behind and entering a new and very foreign manner of living. The way in which this happens is primarily through his fantasy of the Araby fair."
