Book 3, Chapter 4, (Renascence) Summary

Thursday December 4, 2008 Clare = 37

Clare goes to her studio, two years later, she waits for inspiration to come; she tries to ease the difference between then and now and draws a self-portrait, which she holds to the window and perforates with thousands of tiny holes.

Book 3, Chapter 4, (Renascence) Analysis

The self-portrait is symbolic because it defines how Clare feels about being here in the present and wanting to be a ghostlike person, as she once perceived Henry to be. She also feels like less of a person than when she was with Henry, and therefore would like to become transparent or invisible.
