The Night Face Up

The Night Face Up

The story of The Night Face Up by Julio Cortezar presented people with a sense of loss in their interpretations because it jumped from one seen to the next in such a way that it became less and less predictable as the story continued. The nameless character of the main character gave an even more eerie sense to the reader who started seeing his or her experiences in the small details of each of the outlines of the sensory experiences, such as delights at the taste of broth or water. Then there were the offsets in the dream sequences where it seemed that all the ?action? took place because every sequence was accelerated more than the first ? seeming ? reality of the motorcycle world. Following the dream sequences there came the suspensions when the character appeared back in the hospital and was preparing to move back into another dream sequence.

The reader is kept interested because he is constantly presented with
