Il Ladro di Merendine The Sicilian detective, Montalbano, seems to have difficulty following leads; each beginning is halted. It were as if a thief was on his tail. Every beginning is snatched from his grip. Even sleep. He just cannot finger the culprit. The Sicilian author, Andrea Camilleri, seems to have great ease complicating and, later, obviating the story of Montalbano's escape from this difficulty. Camilleri mirrors and mimics Montalbano's story with his writing style. Maybe you recognize a similar synergistic tactic in this preface. CHAPTER ONE: Jolted awake from a disconcerting sleep, Montalbano starts off Il Ladro di Merendine ( The Snack Thief ) on the wrong foot. One that falters in step, for it is half-asleep and out of practice. Coming to, he is alerted of a murder; one that requires an immediate attention and cannot wait for a sleepy foot. Montalbano begins at a limping pace. Somebody was shot down by the docks. There is confusion as to where exactly it happened, since the victim was a traveling victim. While investigating the homicide another one occurs. Somebody was stabbed in an elevator. Montalbano goes to investigate. Chapter one ends in the stabbed man's elevator with little substantial evidence. Montalbano's numbness starts to diminish but his haze has not faded. *Note: Only the first three pages are collated correctly.

A Broudy December 13, 2006 In reading, one becomes an arbitrator for language use. There are, consequentially, pragmatic platforms atop which the reader stands in trying to interpret each clause. Circumstances hitherto the moment of interpretation influence the arbitrator’s comprehension; that is, previous assessments and/or interests influence the reader to interpolate the text with a personal (experiential) twist. So what the reader reads and what the reader cognates/interprets are different and subject to referential influence. This may cause reader of geographical background A to react differently to same text that the candidate of background B reads, granted the backgrounds are dissimilar in some respect. The reader’s stance extends beyond the geographical realm. Language attitudes and ideologies are the most ubiquitous platforms.
