>What is meant by Barnes's dictum that memory is identity and identity is memory?
>Do the biographical, fictional and historical narratives fit with one another?
>Does Barnes intend to let his narrative art carry its religious/moral sense?
>Does the narrative art help unravel the riddle and lead him and his contemporaries to sensible moral orientations?
