We seem to get one perspective in Araby, and the narrators experiences and ideas are limited. In what ways is he subjective and in which ways is he objective? Is there even an objective voice? What things should we believe the narrator in and which should we immediately take as a distorted truth?
Would apreciate it if you would share your views :)

Hi. Im not quite clear, are we talking about 'Araby' the short story by James Joyce, or the poem by Walter de la Mare?
James Joyce's version
Also, a question that resonates with the reader of the story: why did the character feel angry and anguished at the end of the story? Why didn't he just buy the girl he likes any gift and continue with his life? what particular action triggered this?
