    clearly delineating his characters' every feature, Joyce concentrates on hinting at the emotional meanings of his depictions with a rich thick dab of paint here and there. Although Joyce flexes his descriptive muscles in the Dubliners short story "Eveline" (1914,) he leaves much to the imagination of the reader through calculated omissions and suggestive phrases. Such omissions begin at the opening of the story; "She sat at the window watching the evening invade the avenue" (Joyce 37). Joyce
