Q. 2

Describe the conflict of emotions felt by Eveline on the day she had decided to elope with Frank.

Answer :

When Eveline decided to elope with Frank, the memories of her happy days, her childhood, her mother and her siblings came all of a sudden in front of her eyes. She felt nostalgic about the memories of her childhood and of all the people, Harry, Ernest and all of them who have left her house. The voice of organ player reminded of the day her mother died.

On one side, she wanted to start a new respectful life with Frank in Argentin and run away from her father’s cruelty. On the contrary, the promise she made to her mother, to hold the house as she could, was not letting her go.

Through the imagery of ‘window’ and ‘dirty curtains’, the writer has presented a beautiful contrast of conflicting emotions, Eveline was going through, where she has opportunity to run away but flash f memories were restricting her from eloping.
