Bazaar in Ireland in 1914, credit to V.I. Pozdneev.
          Araby is a James Joyce’s short story that was originally published in 1914 (Wikipedia, 2016). The story is about the boy who preoccupied with a neighboring girl. The chance to attract the girl happen when the boy talk to girl in front of the girl house. The boy offers to go to bazaar, and promise to buy a gift to the girl.
Bazaar that talked by the boy and the girl is called Araby, a Saturday bazaar in Dublin, Ireland. Unfortunately, the boy come to bazaar so late as written by Joyce (2000-2017), “I heard a voice call from one end of the gallery that the light was out. The upper part of the hall was now completely dark. Gazing up into the darkness I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity; and my eyes burned with anguish and anger” (paragraph. 36-37).
Finally, I feel pity after reading the story. It is because the uncle who will give money to the boy come home too late. Thus, the boy arrives at bazaar when stalls almost close. He has no opportunity to select good gifts with reasonable price. The story end with light of bazaar turns off.

  6. I never heard of that book. James Joyce is famous for one book, a not very good one.
