This essay bargains with the topics of youth, love and intercourse in of
Joyce's brief tales: An stumble upon and Araby. the 1st half examines the
protagonist of An stumble upon, how he differs from his buddies and his being
contemptuous of them. His realisation that he can't despise them simply because he
might be depending on them is the belief of the "encounter with strangeness
and fascination". the second one half examines the protagonist of Araby and his
existence as a puppet led via Mangan's sister. either elements finish with a quick digression into symbolic shades. The final half – the vicious circle – compares either tales by way of being at the fringe of youth and ends with the foreshadowing of the men turning into paralysed adults.
