    go on/ throw open/ peep in

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me your opinion concerning the interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

    He went on throwing open doors, and peeping in.

    go on = keep on doing; also, proceed

    throw open = make more accessible, especially suddenly or dramatically; open a door harshly; fling the door wide open

    peep in = look in

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
