Auster loves writing about men who lose their memory I think this is the third book of his with that basic premise and he's such a great writer that every single one of them is wonderful One of the things I liked so much about this book besides Auster's writing and storytelling was that there were points throughout the story where it became possible that this book was taking place in the same world as his apocalyptic novel In the Country of Last Things It may or may not be related but one of the things I like so much about Auster's worlds is that there is so much left unexplained that possibilities abound everywhere

Picking The Language LockFrom Kafka to Blanchot to Auster it sounds a bit like an old American baseball triple play However unlikely it seems it is in fact a direct literary lineage What’s passed along isn’t a baseball; it’s an attitude toward language an attitude inspired by of all things the Kabbalah Kabbalah is a Jewish meditative techniue an inadeuate description but so is method or philosophy or experience the purpose of which is not to understand what language means but to reveal what it conceals behind its mask of innocent neutrality Travels in the Scriptorium is one of Auster’s explicit Kabbalistic pieces and therefore probably can’t be fully grasped without understanding its literary ancestryPaul Auster has translated at least two of the French Maurice Blanchot’s books on the philosophy of language and incorporates much of that philosophy in his fiction Blanchot in turn was a serious scholar of Franz Kafka who inspired Blanchot’s thought through his distinctive prose of alienation apparently alienation of the individual from repressive social regimes But Kafka’s primary focus wasn’t political it was linguistic The overtly political insinuations of his stories are allegorical That is to say their language means something other than what it says Travels in the Scroptorium is obviously Kafka esue and obviously allegorical The protagonist Mr Blank inhabits a room without explanation to him or to the reader He has no memory of his arrival there or of his previous life The room could be a bedroom a hospital ward or a prison cell Mr Blank doesn’t know whether he is a guest a patient or a prisoner Meaning is in abeyance thus capturing the reader’s attention with an unstated macguffin So far so KafkaBut very uickly it is evident that there is to the story In particular there are labels in block capitals placed on the objects in the room TABLE PEN SHADE WALL etc As descriptive designations these labels are superfluous Mr Blank obviously knows what these objects are; he hasn’t lost his ability for language along with his memory They are clearly not descriptions or reminders The labels are commands The words they contain are imposed on Mr Blank even if he is unaware of the situation The labels assert an euivalence between the object on which they are placed and the word they contain This is a rather Blanchotian twist It makes explicit the real subject of the story the power of language For on Blanchot and Kabbalah see On the desk is a set of typescripts which Mr Blank fears might reveal unpleasant things but to which he is irresistibly drawn The typescripts don’t have a label Or said another way they constitute one complex narrative label Mr Blank reads them with incomprehension Who are they written by Are they truthful Why are they here for him to read They constitute a command like the labels But Blank has no idea how to respond Could this be precisely the right response to the command of the typescript I think so; and I think that this is a key contribution of Auster to the tradition in which he has chosen to participate The dominance of language is inescapable even when the tactics of the ‘language game’ are clearBlank tries to reassure himself with logical reason “It's only words he tells himself and since when have words had the power to frighten a man half to death It won't do” but they are obviously not ‘merely’ words They have an attractive power which draws him into themselves into the story they form And they generate a range of emotions the most important of which is the compulsion he feels to comprehend what’s ‘behind’ them “while he has grasped every word of the text so far he has no idea what to make of it” Unlike the other experiences he has in the room the feel of his sock clad feet on the polished floor; the sexual ministrations of his mysterious visitor Anna; the touch of a wash cloth on his neck the experience of language is problematicThere is literally no getting behind the labels After a false start to see what’s outside the room Blank gets the shade with its label to roll up only to find impenetrably toughened glass of the window further protected by steel shutters which are themselves held in place by large nails which he has no means to extract “Imagine Mr Blank's disappointment when he peers through the window and sees that the shutters have been closed blocking any possibility of looking out to discover where he is”But in a manner analogous to his attitude toward the typescript text Blank’s desire to understand his context is also ambivalent He could try the door since he doesn’t know whether it locks from inside or out “But Mr Blank does not move from his spot by the window for the simple reason that he is afraid so afraid of what he might learn from the door that he cannot bring himself to risk a confrontation with the truth” The danger is that there is nothing there at all at least nothing which can be discovered with a label already attached For me this is a perfect example of Auster’s imaginative brilliance And it’s also the opening by which Kabbalah enters his storyThe first ‘principle’ another inadeuate term of Kabbalah is that everything is a sign It doesn’t fight language it succumbs entirely to it Auster alludes to this by the visual and audio recording of everything that occurs in the room “The least groan or sniffle the least cough or fleeting flatulence that emerges from his body is therefore an integral part of our account as well” In Kabbalah every jot and tittle of the text is of tremendous import My sense is that Auster’s inclusion of Blank’s grunts and mumbles and the unintelligible random noises of the room is an intentional self referential parody of Kabbalah a very appropriate Kabbalistic tactic which freuently exposes itself to its own critiue Kabbalah then destroys the conventional meaning of the signs As he reads the typescript Blank is informed that the narrative will be used against the writer who has prepared it by those who are persecuting him The writer implies that although he is being as factual as he can be in his report what he has written is essentially a lie which will convict him The text says “Thank the Colonel for me and tell him I understand what he's doing He's giving me a chance to lie about what happened in order to save my neck That's very sporting of him Please tell him that I appreciate the gesture By allowing me to put the story in writing he is gathering evidence irrefutable evidence that will justify any action he decides to take against me” In other words even the most factual account he can give is evidence of his guilt Truth itself is falsehood; the connections between words and things is brokenBut Kabbalah is not merely destructive It seeks to re construct reality by re arranging the relationships among the signs of language to give these signs not new designations connecting them to things but to give them new relationships with each other thus re framing their emotional import as well as demonstrating their arbitrary exercise of power At one point Blank tries to adjust the labels as “a symbolic undertaking to restore harmony to a broken universe” This is one of many examples of Auster’s explicit use of the terminology of Kabbalah repairing the broken universeWhat does Blank do to escape the power of words Remarkably he writes He throws himself back into the arms of the thing which is constraining him namely language He constructs a story Like the writer of the typescript Blank can only tell another story regardless of the conseuences “The only thing I can do is tell the story” The uniue aspect of this story is that it cannot be a command except perhaps to oneself It is therefore not something definitive or eternal or verifiable The story is a re construction out of the material at hand which will change as the material allows including the new material of his story itselfThis is the dangerous truth the ghost in the machine the bedrock of thought that there is no bedrock Many find this not just dangerous but sacrilegious an affront to both the human mind and whatever they consider to be divine intelligence Travels in the Scriptorium is wonderfully dangerous and sacrilegious just like Kabbalah
