Hero Ponders the Lives of Mr. Billings, Ring-Eyed Liege,and Madame De La Rougierre.K. Lorraine Graham
After the hero talks to his relatives, he adjures little men no longer little to climb with unprecedented vigor and frankness. He rides a bike around ring roads in search of former military men who do not like their former leaders. He says, “Behold! The brilliant Technicolor background, the cigarette smoke!” The hero calls for an active participation in what he calls “living.” The hero says, “why produce life to sing from swings if not to sing from them as long as possible.” This indulgent sentiment is contradictory, he knows, given his diet, but it is not easy to love people and it is difficult to protect those who are small.
