Claude Simon - The Wind: Attempted Restoration of a Baroque Altarpiece

The novel with a fast-paced plot is a story about a strange human fate that faces the unsolvable mystery of peace and chaos, order and disorder. The thirty-five-year-old hero of the novel, Antoine Montes, comes after his father's death to receive his inheritance - one of the largest estates in the city with vineyards. As in any provincial town, here too, every new, foreign body is perceived as an absolute encroachment on public peace, established order. The cases are not presented as an objective narrative, but the author of the story tries to restore the complicated, multi-layered, elusive reality through revealing facts, conversations, and his own conclusions. "Wind" covering is really similar to "Baroque Altarpiece" with abundance of details, unpredictable arabesques and curves, endless brackets. Through the fate of the main character K. Simon expresses his perception of fiction as often branching out in its quest, never reaching a dead end, moving forward "through quicksand".
