Leonard Mead, the protagonist, enjoys going for walks in the city especially at night. 10 15 20 25 30 [...] Sometimes he would walk for hours and miles and return only at midnight to his house. And on his way he would see the cottages and homes with their dark windows, and it was not unequal to walking through a graveyard where only the faintest glimmers of firefly light appeared in flickers behind the windows. Sudden gray phantoms seemed to manifest upon inner room walls where...

a curtain was still undrawn against the night, or there were whisperings and murmurs where a window in a tomb-like building was still open. Mr. Leonard Mead would pause, cock his head, listen, look, and march on, his feet making no noise on the lumpy walk. For long ago he had wisely changed to sneakers when strolling at night, because the dogs in intermittent squads would parallel his journey with barkings if he wore hard heels, and lights might click on and faces appear and an entire street be startled by the passing of a lone figure, himself, in the early November evening. On this particular evening he began his journey in a westerly direction, toward the hidden sea. There was a good crystal frost in the air; it cut the nose and made the lungs blaze like a Christmas tree inside; you could feel the cold light going on and off, all the branches filled with invisible snow. He listened to the faint push of his soft shoes through autumn leaves with satisfaction, and whistled a cold quiet whistle between his teeth, occasionally picking up a leaf as he passed, examining its skeletal pattern in the infrequent lamplights as he went on, smelling its rusty smell. actenos 'Hello, in there,' he whispered to every house on every side as he moved. What's up tonight on Channel 4, Channel 7, Channel 9? Where are the cowboys rushing, and do I see the United States Cavalry over the next hill to the rescue? [...] sensely a S He turned back on a side street, circling around toward his home. He was within a block of his destination when the lone car turned a corner quite suddenly and flashed a fierce white cone of light upon him. He stood entranced, not unlike a night moth, stunned by the illumination, and then drawn toward it. A metallic voice called to him: 'Stand still. Stay where you are! Don't move!" He halted. Put up your hands! But he said. 35 40 45 50 55 60 05 'Your hands up! Or we'll shoot!

Crime was ebbing; there was no now for the police, save for this one lone car wandering and wandering the empty streets. Your name?' said the police car in a metallic whisper. He couldn't see the men in it for the bright light in his eyes. Leonard Mead, he said. 'Speak up!' Leonard Mead!" 'Business or profession?' I guess you'd call me a writer' 'No profession,' said the police car, as if talking to itself. The light held him fixed, like a museum specimen, needle thrust through chest. You might say that,' said Mr. Mead. He hadn't written in years. Magazines and books didn't sell any more. Everything went on in the tomblike houses at night now, he thought, continuing his fancy. The tombs, ill-lit by television light, where the people sat like the dead, the gray or multicolored lights touching their faces, but never really touching them. 'No profession,' said the phonograph voice, hissing. What are you doing out?" Walking' said Leonard Mead. 'Walking!' Just walking,' he said simply, but his face felt cold. Walking, just walking, walking?' 'Yes, sir." 'Walking where? For what?" Walking for air. Walking to see. 'Your address!" Pararaxis Glhen Hypotesis Eleven South Saint James Street." And there is air in your house, you have an air conditioner, Mr. Mead?" easy language. Precisely 'Yes. And you have a viewing screen in your house to see with? 'No. peaceful fearful Espooky No There was a crackling quiet that in itself was an accusation. Are you married, Mr. Mead?" 'No.' 'Not married,' said the police voice behind the fiery beam. The moon was high and clear among the stars and the houses were gray and silent. Nobody wanted me, said Leonard Mead with a smile. Don't speak unless you're spoken to!" Leonard Mead waited in the cold night. Just walking, Mr. Mead?' 'Yes.' "But you haven't explained for what purpose." '1 explained; for air, and to see, and just to walk." Have you done this often?'

In the beginning of the excerpt, the almosphere seems to be peaceful - even a bit bering - when Mr. Mead walks through the city. Everything is dark and quiet, as if nothing would happen.

By using and short paratactie crys and sentences (1.55), the auther supports the almosphere. Also the use of repetitions (11. 53-55) shows the absurdity, that this se scene produces.
