Re: RARA-AVIS: Question about Ross Macdonald's works

Date: 13 Mar 2007

To clarify, I didn't mean to imply Archer is not involved in his cases, he surely is. What I meant was that we don't get a lot of his interior character. We see through his eyes, definitely get his (often judgemental) viewpoint of everyone else, but rarely see behind those eyes. It is a mild version of what Robbe-Grillett did in Jealousy, where the narrator is so hidden that it takes a while to realize that there is one, that it is told in the first person and not third person omniscient.
