Write an essay discussing the representation of consumerism and luxury in Araby.
What does the story suggest the purposes of luxury goods, leisure activity and consumer spending are? How do these purposes differ from one another? Are some presented as justified while others are presented as unjust? What is the relationship between literary language and/or reading and consumption? Are flowery language, exotic images, pleasure, etc. presented as suspicious? What does this suggest about the author’s attitudes towards reading and writing, activities normally associated with pleasure? How does the story invite us to feel about consumerism and luxury generally, and does this seem to reinforce or estrange the reader from the norms of the society as they are presented in the story?
