The Emigrants by W. G. Sebald Day 6

June 15, 2021 | Ambros Adelwarth (through "the enormous cauliflower he held in his crooked left arm") p. 107-126

Dr. Abramsky’s comment about madness being “a question of perspective” makes me think of the famous paper “On Being Sane in Insane Places”

Abramsky’s fantasia of the collapsing sanatorium reminds me of the labyrinth in The Rings of Saturn, a physical space that represents the conceptual space of the book—we re-create the past in such fine detail before we watch it fall.


Ambros’s difficult with dressing/undressing: a much more tragic version of Theres’s continuous weeping.


The Deauville dream! The endless dream that goes on for days. He is tired and even sleeps in the dream.
