Clerkship in Babel's First-Person Narration
This chapter presents specific readings of five of Babel's “metaliterary” stories—“Guy de Maupassant,” “The Ivan-and-Maria,” “The Story of My Dovecote,” “My First Fee,” and “Pan Apolek”—wherein the narrator's double identity as clerk and writer, and the epistemological accounting for literature through the materials of life, are examined.
