Choose one topic in the following:
James Joyce’s Araby 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 dangers of idealization, the Catholic Church’s influence, asceticism [where desire and sensuality are seen as immoral], the pain that often comes when one encounters love in reality instead of its elevated form. Select one or more of these themes and show how Joyce represented the theme[s].

Araby involves a character who embarks on a journey, the end result of which is fruitless, and ends with the character going back to where he came from. Discuss the journey itself and its significance in the story. This is, after all, a ”quest” narrative, and the quest, it appears is for love itself.
The paper is 3 pages, typed, double space. Good luck!
