comment Use of a comma to separate a single word
That does seem to be what he's doing, using it how we in English might use quotes, but I wanted to keep the question as open-ended as I could :)

comment Use of も in this sentence.
I think what he's saying is that the "everything else" is implied. You could also say something like "places like the pubs and city center"

comment Have a trouble with まで
My first instinct would be that it means something similar to what we would say in English when we say "I've had it up to here!" (まで meaning "up to" in this case.)

comment Don't undestand this particular use of ない form
Well explained :) I would just add that using ない is a common, casual way of inviting someone to do something.

comment Why would one use 当て字?
From my impression of it, new uses of 当て字 are few and far between, but they used to be a lot more common, and what we see are hold-overs from that.

comment What does これも at the start of a sentence mean?
It may just be my English brain protesting the start of a sentence with an "Also", but here is the context: 今の文学青年はセンチメンタルになることを怖れている。これも傷つけられるのを怖れる一種のさもしい心のあらわれかも知れない。

comment What does ちゃい in やっちゃいねぇ mean?
I know you weren't looking for a translation, that's why I suggested you reword your question, not change it. And I don't really know but I would guess that it's just short for やっちゃいない.

comment What does ちゃい in やっちゃいねぇ mean?
Welcome to JLSE! We generally frown on asking questions like this, because it looks like a simple translation question. It looks like you're trying to understand what the ~っちゃい form is short for. It's good that you've included what you think it isn't, (but for the record, why do you think it is not やっちゃう) but if you reword your question to ask about the underlying grammar of what is troubling you, it will be less likely to be closed. meta.japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/796/…
