Show Summary Details


The chapters included in Bizarro are expounded in this chapter. Without attempting to arrange the history of Bizarro in its proper order, it relates one incident that bore deep upon Domenichino's character, and appears to have actually proved decisive of his fate. Wegweiser was at first regarded with some suspicion in the village and its vicinage. The chapter then addresses the scene in which the keeper Hubert Wegweiser is left wending homeward in conversation with his assistant Antonio, whom he had brought up, not without a view to his succeeding him in his office if he should after a certain time appear deserving of the situation. It would seem that the evilly disposed perpetrators had disturbed the old man by an entrance through the window of the store room, which had proved somewhat noisier than they had expected.
