Example text

It was anton’s story 26 almost 8 o’clock: curfew. Outside all was as still as it must be on the moon. (1516) The phrase “the dice being shaken and the pawns being moved across the board” suggests a symbolic narrative device – the dice and pawns used in the game of “mens erger je niet” obviously foreshadow the fateful event which is about to occur in the lives of the Steenwijks. The Dutch word for “die” is “dobbelsteen”,6 and throughout the book any stone or rock will signify fate to Anton;7 although he will do all he can to forget the events of that night, stones and rocks will continue to appear in the narrative as stumbling blocks placed in his path.

The woman asks permission to touch his face in order to discern his features. Again, Anton finds her touch, her maternal tenderness exciting: Softly her cold fingertips caressed his forehead, his eyebrows, cheeks, nose, and lips. He sat motionless, his head slightly tilted back. He felt that this was something very solemn, a kind of initiation, something they might do in Africa. All of a sudden she pulled her hand back and moaned. (35) An initiation indeed, though not one “they might do (only) in Africa”; it will turn out that Anton habitually thinks of events, customs or behaviors with which he is not familiar in terms of geographical distance.

57) This appears on the surface to be a case of willful ignorance, of a determination to not know – after all, by virtue of raising the question whether the woman “had had anything to with the assault”, the narrator points out that in spite of himself Anton had an awareness of the assault (thus relegating to paradox the statement that all that had been hermetically sealed away), and secondly, that Anton could and must have known (or at least “suspected”) that the woman was somehow involved in the assault.
