"Eveline"

by James Joyce


 
1. What keeps Eveline from going with Frank?  Why is she like "a helpless animal" at the end?
2. Why is Eveline attracted to Frank?  What does she think he will save her from?  (Pay attention to the images of dust and darkness.)  Can he really save her?
3. Try to analyze the father-mother-daughter relationships in the story in Freudian terms.
