The narrator plays in dark and shadowy streets; his light is Mangan's sister. Examine the way he describes her, the feelings he has for her, and the language he uses to narrate his account of his devotion to her. What is the meaning of the inclusion of the language of medieval romance? In the fifth paragraph religious language dominates: "shrill litanies," "strange prayers and praises," "confused adoration." What specifically is "confused" about the boy's "adoration" of this girl?
I really need help with this, it's my last question!
The story is Araby by James Joyce .
