The reader is bound meticulously to the cataloguing and scrutinizing of objects in rooms and nurtures a relational system based on distance, proximity, and difference.

The lla focuses on extreme surface, chronicling objects, proximity of things, and disembodied individuals treated as bits and pieces; relational. All is static, purgatorial, and repetitive in this world; change and growth come through revisiting the flood of surfaces and exterior observations. What changed in how the narrator decodes the tableau of objects as he seeks to confirm his suspicions?

A slightly damaged and subjective empiricism is at work here.

Sitting on the veranda the narrator observes:. The four hands are lying in a row, motionless.

The shrill cry of some nocturnal carnivore, sharp malousie short, echoes again toward the bottom of the valley, at an unspecified distance. Robbe-Grillet is forensic as his narrator attempts to determine whether the objects are what they purport to be, or as he alleges, an affair is taking place.


On the veranda in front of the office windows, Franck is sitting in his customary place, in one of the chairs of local manufacture. Only these three have been jslousie out this morning.

They are arranged as usual: Time is an elegant wash with events woven into jlousie flow, only anchored by the repetition of revisited moments, the clink of a glass on the veranda, a centipede squashed on a wall, a servant not responding to a call was this staged or did he not hear? A… has gone to get the glasses, the soda water, and the cognac herself.

She sets a tray with the two bottles and three big glasses down on the table. Having uncorked the cognac she turns toward Franck and looks at him, while she begins making his drink. She has arranged her hair into a low knot whose skillful waves seem about to come undone; some hidden pins must be keeping it firmer rohbe-grillet it looks.

The repetitions sneak up on the reader making it unclear if something new is happening or if the narrator is going back into the moment.

We are essentially robbe-grilpet in surface. Riding only descriptions of images and sound, the reader attempts to reconstruct the nature of how the unnamed narrator observes, how all this exterior fits and what is happening under the surface.
