Research Paper On Eveline James Joyce

EVELINE by JAMES JOYCE, literary essay help please

Writing a LITERARY ESSAY, here's the skeleton, help me please? Let me know if i'm on the right track, or changes i need to make.

Thesis: Although a life of adventure is appealing to Eveline she is imobilized by the fear of the unknown.

Arg. 1: -mother's death traumatizing = leave to feel something other than pain / look after sibling like mother = leave as to not repeat mother's life or routine

Arg. 2: -has all she needs at home & never wanted to leave = sheltered lifestyle / leave Dubliin = on her own & forget all she's known for something comepletely new / Frank = bad influence "drown her" , lost in the new world, won't make it

Arg. 3: -her "right to happiness" motivates her to leave (franks love = happy) / father doesn't like Frank (Eve. alway pleases others, never does anything for herself) / leaving with him will bring unkown consequences = scares Eve.

In conclusion i want to talk about how water is a sign of rejuvination but Eve. sees it as her "death" and the difference between Dublin and Buenos Aires (small town vs. big city), those are kind of what the unkown are made up of in Eve.'s head.

Help? Feedback, recommendations, anything, please help.

Thanks, Lots of Love <3
