Broadly speaking, there are two kinds of narration: one, where the reader would remain aware of some outside voice telling him/her what’s going on; two, a narration that seeks to reproduce, without the narrator’s intervention, the full spectrum and continuous flow of a character’s mental process. Which of these is exemplified in this essay? Illustrate.
‘The mark on the wall’ is a perfect example of Virginia Woolf’s ‘Stream of Consciousness’, Which is a narration that seeks to reproduce, without the narrator’s intervention, the full spectrum of and continuous flow of a character’s mental process. Throughout the story, the narrator centered her interpretations of the mark that she sees on the wall while smoking a cigarette sitting on a chair from some distance. In this process of solving the mystery behind the mark, the narrator comes up with a collection of vast unconnected thoughts and opinions. These thoughts persuade the reader to think and stimulate his/her mental process. The flood of thoughts that the mark provokes in the narrator’s mind is so un-relatable to the actual reason behind the mark- the snail.
