THE LULL

In prose, which has a rather special, stylised fascination, this is an interlude which records in the third person (though it bears the earmarks of being autobiographical), the indirection of a man who had returned from the wars, in all his uneasiness and restlessness, inertia and indifference. This is a time of inaction, of inability to write, of thoughts in which he cannot escape the past since so much of it is present, of resentment of the changes which have taken place, of escape- as he goes fishing, and later makes a trip to the southwest....Tenuous, transitory in a manner which matches its mood, this has a very definite quality, though its audience is difficult to indicate.
