Hich the metaphor is meant to work at key points in the book This led me back into The Tunnel for another look Halpern and Carpenter suggest that Sabato followed Borges in his interest in the labyrinthine character of history through which the world changes direction at critical nodes They also point out Borges allusions to alternative and ven parallel universes that were of interest to Sabato They contend that Sabato builds on these Borgian tropes to create scenes of discontinuous time in his storyMaybe so But I find the argument of Halpern and Carpenter to be somewhat tendentious But ven stipulating their observations I don t see the point The metaphor if there is certainly not central to this tale of murder and psychopathy Of course there are always alternative trajectories for any story or for any historical reality But the idea of using the collapse of You know I was going to review this book but then it occurred to me that I would never know if you have read my review I mean yes I do get likes but suppose people are liking them without reading them Of course why would anyone do that Two possibilities seem to suggest themselves ither they want to make a fool of me by making me keep writing reviews that no one reads or to distract me from something Of course that in itself calls for a mass conspiracy because so many people from so many countries will be liking my reviews unless of course it is one person with many fake accounts Now that I think about it the possibility seems very real The above is how our protagonist might have started a review But now to proper reviewI don t know if it can be defined that way but all art whether it be painting writing singing Campfire etc all art forms seems to be tools of communication of communicating in superior ways It is like that teenager boy writing poems to his sweat heart sort of thing or making albums uoting great poets when one doesn t feel gifted oneself because our normalveryday language isn t My Little Blue Dress enough toxpress what we feelBut what about artists What yearnings must they have in themselves to make it their profession to develop those tools to be on constant look out at just the right word phrase color Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars etc Why should MB write leave alone his manuscript of Master and Margarita leave alone keep them knowing that they are as good as their death warrant Manuscripts don t burn one hears in the answer but why don t they Is it that they live in constant fear of being misunderstood like Kafka was Perhaps getting the message right in itself notnough there must also need be the person who can understand the message And thus Nabokov s irritation at wrong interpretations of his works and Van Gogh s sorrow who though created most beautiful paintings never found a pair of Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life eyes in which that beauty is reflected Perhaps that is why artists seek posterity and immortality to carry to their death bed the hope that what they have to say will be one day be heard in just the way they wanted The protagonist in the Invitation to a Beheading by Nabokov gives his writings to hisxecutioners in desperation and asks them not to destroy them as long as he is alive so that he could at least have a theoretical chance of finding a readerSo is it for that theoretical Chance Of Finding Someone of finding someone will understand him "That Keeps The Artist Going It Seems To Be True "keeps the artist going It seems to be true the case of Juan Pablo our protagonist here for whom the whole life was like a dark tunnel yes that Crazy Love explains the title where he lived in solitude because as he puts it no one understood him The trouble begins when he finds a woman does understand him And he discovers that he has a lot to say than that single painting She wants that too because the need for understanding is mutual It doesn t matter who paints and who reflects Only our guy can t havenough his overt thinking over analytical pathological brain can t believe his good fortune Like Anna Karenina he needs constant assurances of her fidelity as is often the case of those who fell in love when they had long given up on any chance of finding it Like her he too dwells over suicide but rather prefers killing his girlfriendCamus commissioned its publishing and the narrator here too finds himself a stranger in his world but his solitude because he is a nihilist but rather because of his misanthropy It also shows similarity to Lolita in that Juan Pable might be putting his own version and suppressing the voice of his victim Really wanted to nail this in one sitting but still managed it in two wow this still retains it s power to shock all these years later disturbing and Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society even funny Sabato features possibly the most chillingnding I have come across to date Narrated by an artist in jail that being Juan Pablo Castelwho practically goes about stalking a woman named Maria after he spots her ying one of his canvases in a gallery From this moment on he forces his way into her life learning she has a blind husband and x lovers drives him deranged with jealous nvy A perverse ffect of the candour in Castel s retrospective account is that it almost makes you forget he s a murderer believing this is an ordinary man just telling a story It wasn t always uncomfortable and has some darkly humorous moments throughout The lurking horror of his crime is all the gross for its subtlety that s what makes El T nel so darn chilling A fantastic psychological short novel Missing out on top marks though because I still felt it s story somehow seemed unbalanced. Is the story of a murdererin the city of Buenos Aires Argentin. ,

From The Feet Up 
the feet up water rising in a pool but when I began to speak it was at the top of my voice Then I was amazed by two facts the words I wanted to say came out as suawks screeches that fell on my ars as desperate and alien perhaps because there was still something human about them and what was infinitely worse my friends did not hear the suawking just as they had not seen my normous bird body This nightmare foreshadows a scene in The Angel of Darkness where S bato walks down a street in Buenos Aires having been transformed into a half blind barely aware four foot batThe theme of blindness pops up continually Maria Iribarne s husband is blind During one motionally charged conversation Castel accuses Maria of deceiving a blind man At another point Castel conveys how he was blinded by the painful glare of his own shyness and at still another how his blindness prevented him from seeing a flaw in an idea And turns out we can see how Castel s obsession made him blind when it came to Maria For Pretty Reckless (All Saints High, example the followingxchange where Castel first converses with herThe hardness in her face and yes disturbed me Why is she so cold I asked myself Why Perhaps she sensed my anxiety my hunger to communicate because for an instant her xpression softened and she seemed to offer a bridge between us But I felt that it was a temporary and fragile bridge swaying high above an abyss Her voice was different when she added But I don t know what you will gain by seeing me I hurt The West Transformed everyone who comes near me Just as Opaue the Second Time RoundIn The Tunnel Ernesto Sabato has a mysogonistic puerile obsessive apparently psychopathic murderer tell the reader hisvery thought about a folie a deux with his victim and its rationale My first time through The Tunnel left me bewildered Of what literary rather than ideological merit is this work For whose dification or amusement is it meant My original conclusion It s a difficult book to be interested in much less like But I picked up on a hint by another GR reader and found that Sabato was a scientist before he was a writer and had incorporated uantum physics in The Tunnel as a sort of hidden metaphor Indeed there is a short book by Halpern and Carpenter which outlines the way in Becoming a big hit in France Albert Camus was a fan The novel.
