AN EXAMINATION OF THE WORK OF HERBERT QUAIN PDF

The reader of this singular book is thus forcible more discerning than the detective. The first reports the ambiguous dialogue of certain strangers on a railway platform. The second narrates the events on the eve of the first act [the book itself is the third and sole act — UOC]. Each on of these three eves each of which rigorously excludes the other is divided into three other eves, each of a very different kind. The entire work, thus, constitutes nine novels; each novel contains three long chapters.

The reader of this singular book is thus forcible more discerning than the detective. The first reports the ambiguous dialogue of certain strangers on a railway platform.

The second narrates the events on the eve of the first act [the book itself is the third and sole act — UOC]. Each on of these three eves each of which rigorously excludes the other is divided into three other eves, each of a very different kind.

The entire work, thus, constitutes nine novels; each novel contains three long chapters. The first chapter, naturally, is common to all. Rather than the fractured ternary structure of the prior work, Quain has opted for a streamlined two-act structure. The first act tells one story and the second act tells the same story, recast slightly. The stories inform each other and create a rich tapestry for the novel.

The reader, led astray by vanity, thinks he has invented them. It is probably the story that has stuck with me least throughout this collection, but I still find it fascinating to consider all the different divisions and fractal mazes that can lie buried in books, ready for the reader to engage with.

Borges will revisit this particular idea in a later story that I appreciated much more. Share this:.
