    She wasn't necessarily irritated because of problems with her family. She was irritated because she realized she didn't really love her husband anymore. It didn't have much to do with her family, actually.

    She didn't have problems with her family. She had problems with her husband. The word "husband" and the word "family" are not interchangeable. They mean completely different things.

    Dust is symbolic of the lack of life in the house and how nothing ever really changes much. Like dust, lack of movement makes more of this fine debris accumulate; in life, stagnation also begets more stagnation unless some kind of willful movement changes us. Dust is mentioned repeatedly to reinforce Eveline's own lack of movement. The story opens with her placidly sitting beside her window, watching the world go by. Most of the action takes place in her mind. She almost makes it out of Dublin and to Buenos Aires (literally translated "good air,") the opposite of her dust-covered life in Ireland, but in the end she is too afraid to make the change. It is as if her personal dust had been disturbed by a slight wind, only to resettle once again and cover up her hopes.

    One theme would be: the contrast between the lifestyles of the rich and the lifestyles of the poor. The upper class didn't really have any misfortunes.
