ENGLISH 4 QUESTION - "ARABY" BY JAMES JOYCE - HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

At the end of “Araby” the narrator sees himself as “driven and

derided by vanity.” One meaning of "vanity" is “the state of being

empty, idle, valueless.” Another meaning is “exaggerated self-love.”

Still another is “hunger for praise or admiration.” Explain, with

specific examples from the text, how each of these definitions of

vanity could apply to the narrator.
