This chapter focuses on Paul Auster, the writer's room, and the relationship between metropolitan experience and the attempts to re-present it from memory through language. It studies Auster's concern with language, his poetry and the process of composition he uses when writing prose pieces. This chapter shows that a poet's retreat into his room is a way of interacting with the metropolis while protecting the artistic self from the overwhelming complications of modern city life.
