James is my second favorite writer, after Proust, of course. While Marcher is sure that something monstrous is going to happen to him, thus remaining hypervigilant through his entire life in wait for what he calls the beast, James is quick to show how the underlying narcissism that pervades our suffering—and which can blind us to the suffering of others—still courts a desire to be understood, acknowledged, and ultimately known.

No it is not a clown in a sewer 'where everything floats. Or maybe it's simply about closeted dudes and their faithful beards. Marcher continues to visit her at her house, and she is constantly seated by the fire in an old-fashioned armchair that she can now scarce leave.
