Setting is one of the most significant elements in a story The setting goes far beyond the simple physical attributes and external face value It seems Eveline solely takes place in Dublin in an old room but the setting actually plays a key role in the story The setting in Eveline helps the reader to better understand the behavior of the main character The setting in Eveline is paralyzing and this helps the reader to understand why Eveline does not go with Frank to Buenos Aires In the majority of the story Eveline sat at the window 512 which parallels with her paralysis because she does not move Eveline was going to go away like the others 512 because she was one of the only people left in Dublin from her childhood However Eveline doesnt go since she is trapped in her setting Almost nothing in Evelines setting ever changes throughout her life The significance of Eveline looking around the room reviewing all its familiar objects 512 is that she never dreamed of being divided from them All around her Eveline had those she had know all her life about her 512 Eveline is a product of her environment The reader can see how the setting never changes Evelines life molds to it This explains the reason for her not going away and starting a much happier life It is extremely hard for her to make the decision of whether or not to go with Frank because she only knows one way Eveline understands that she has a hard life513 and she has the chance to go to a place where it would not be like that 513 However it scares Eveline to change her setting After thinking about leaving she did not find her present setting as wholly undesirable 513 as she previously did The latter part of Eveline is set by the sea This sea is a symbol of rejuvenation for Eveline Much
