Notes

Chapter four is devoted to introducing the fourth of the main characters in the novel, the fourth lonely heart, Jake Blount. He is a man who seems close to insanity, who has read a great deal but doesnít seem to have the formal education that would provide him with rational habits of thought. He bursts out with his insights to people who donít understand his language or his ideas. He thinks he has the truth, that he is one among a very few people who understand how things are run. He thinks it is his responsibility to communicate this truth to people as if it were gospel, but he is constantly frustrated at peopleís unwillingness to accept what he says.


He attaches to Mr. Singer for the same reason that Mick does. Mr. Singer canít speak up to tell him that he has his own thoughts, so Jake assumes that Mr. Singer understands and agrees with everything he says. Jake has been on a week long drinking bout. In this chapter, he has woken from sleeping at Mr. Singerís and is feeling very shaky from the affects of alcohol. As he stares into Mr. Singerís eyes, he feels balanced and steadied.
