The Dream Archipelago Week 4: The Trace of Him
Short read this week, and a short discussion, too!
Here's a familiar story, very similar (but not the same as) a story called The Trace from The Islanders.
The summary is simple: A woman (who is given no identity) travels to Piqay to attend the funeral of an old lover. She is an outsider, and treated as such by her friend's family, though they recognize her as important. She visits the room of her old friend, and finds there a trace of him. She leaves shortly thereafter.
What was different about this version? Does it achieve a different mood?
