At Night (short story)
As with many of the pieces in his notebooks, the tale is more of a segment then a story. The narrator reflects on the emptiness that can engulf one during nighttime. Yet, at the same time, where each person sleeps there has been a rich history. Someone, the story says, must watch others at night, either for protection or posterity.
