Then the writer puts roadblocks in the way of the boy and the reader: the wait for Saturday itself, and then for the uncle's return from work. Moreover, it is "not some Freemason [Protestant] affair. After much anguished waiting, the boy receives money for the bazaar, but by the time he arrives at Araby, it is too late. First, he offers a main character who elicits sympathy because of his sensitivity and loneliness. When the protagonist finally arrives at the bazaar, too late, the reader wants so badly for the boy to buy something, anything, for Mangan's sister that when he says "No, thank you" to the Englishwoman who speaks to him, it is heartbreaking. Joyce's point-of-view strategy thereby allows the reader to examine the feelings of his young protagonists while experiencing those feelings in all their immediate, overwhelming pain. The boy requests and receives permission to attend the bazaar on Saturday night. He has forgotten about his promise to the boy, and when reminded of it — twice — he becomes distracted by the connection between the name of the bazaar and the title of a poem he knows. One evening she asks him if he plans to go to a bazaar a fair organized, probably by a church, to raise money for charity called Araby.
