Corey Stanton Rebecca Byrkit English 102 29 January 2008 Eveline response James Joyce’s story Eveline is a depressing story about a girl who, basically, lives a rather poor, beaten down, miserable life. Her father makes her do chores at the last minute and rarely treats her well. Since her mother’s death she has taken on the roles of housewife/mother. She finally gets a break a meets someone great and he asks her to marry him and go with him to his home in Buenos Aires. Upon the day that she is to leave with him she is torn between leaving her family and leaving her new husband. Overall I enjoyed reading this story because it reminds me of stories about how someone’s mother or father dies and they have to take on the responsibilities of that loss. Unlike most stories that I have heard that when these people are granted an “escape route” either by marriage or by a job offer or college/education they go and try and make the best of this so called escape route.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
