James Joyce

Araby

Araby is a short story by James Joyce published in his 1914 collection Dubliners. It touches on a great number of themes coming of age, the loss of innocence,
the life of the mind versus poverty (both physical and intellectual), the consequences of idealization and others. The themes build on one another entirely through the thoughts of the young boy, who is portrayed by the first-person narrator, who writes from memory.

    Gazing up into the darkness I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity; and my eyes burned with anguish and anger.

    After an intolerable delay the train moved out of the station slowly. It crept onward among ruinous houses and over the twinkling river.

    The syllables of the word Araby were called to me through the silence in which my soul luxuriated and cast an Eastern enchantment over me.
