    I hated itHippolyte the central character is a drifter and a dreamer he does literally dream unfortunately – yawn yawn yawn and can afford to do so As the book progresses it becomes harder to tell dream from ‘reality’ sanity from madness Set in France and mostly in Paris during the German occupation there is something so unwholesome about the atmosphere of this novel I found myself wanting Fritz to clean up this nasty little show f

Sontag wrote this the first of her four novels in the early sixties when the Freudian theory of dream interpretation still held water We know today from the work of neuroscientists that there is no consensus on what dreams mean if anything Indeed some researchers have called dreams meaningless nothing than an overactive brain repeating recent stimuli during the nightly period of sensory deprivation The narrator here Hippolyte evinces a powerful inwardness and love of solitude His only interest is his dreams He lives in Paris His friend Jean Jacues is a homosexual prostitute and thief who lives a dangerous night life Perhaps as a means of highlighting Hippolyte s inwardness Sontag has Jean Jacues take him home to bed one night After he shows not a jot of curiosity about his recent homosexual experience Despite its utter uniueness in his experience the event passes as if it were nothing significant than a recent shower It is as if Sontag wants to signify through Hippolyte s incuriousness his total immersion in his dream life For both his bisexuality and his real lifedream life can be viewed as forms of dualism a willingness to dwell simultaneously in opposing worlds Hippolyte is for the most part drawn to women Frau Anders is a matronly socialite given to nightly soirees where she collects the talented and famous Here Hippolyte meets Jean Jacues She and Hippolyte run off to an unnamed Islamic country There Hippolyte sells her to a native merchant and returns home without her He mulls her newfound happiness I must confess that knowing nothing of her fortunes I envied her She had achieved her freedom which coincided with the fulfillment of her fantasy In such an oneiric novel nothing is made of this Frau Anders seems missed by no one Hippolyte continues to dream his true passion For him dream life and logic have overtaken reality In his Dream of Mirrors he comes to see his dreams as a reflection of daily life The dreams all of them were a mirror before which my daytime life presented itself and which gave back to me an unfamiliar but intelligible image With perseverance and attentive inactivity the two would come together Thus he comes close to 20th century dream theory He is entirely self involved with little or no compassion for others After he unceremoniously dumps Frau Anders he takes up with her libertine daughter Lucrezia His fling with her ends just in time for Frau Anders return She shows him her damaged body Hippolyte s response is to plan and carry out her murder But alas she survives Hippolyte is inept as anything but a dreamer He falls in with a professor of obscure religions When Frau Anders turns up undead he decides to redecorate and give to her a house his father left him She wants him He doesn t want her He returns to the provinces to marry a young woman who rapidly sickens As she fades Hippolyte invites Jean Jacues back into their lives When he shows up in a Gestapo uniform incidentally Hippolyte breaks a chair over his back knocking him unconscious The fringe professor of religion expounds laughably at the wife s funeral Frau Anders who s Jewish shows up running from the Nazis Hippolyte hides her for a while and is relieved when she leaves The war ends Frau Anders returns Hippolyte decides to go live in the house he once gave her She in turn becomes his housekeeper And then there s this blur into alternative storylines Suddenly Frau Anders shows up at Hippolyte s door so it can t be her who is sitting in the kitchen in a housekeeper s uniform and so on
