1. Whose “trembling hand” is referred to in the above extract? Why was it trembling?
Mr. Oliver’s “trembling hand” is referred to in the above extract. It was trembling out of fear, as he had encountered a boy sitting alone on a rock, in the forest and sobbing with no eyes, ears, nose or mouth.
2. Explain the sentence:
“He turned and scrambled down the path, running blindly through the trees.”
Mr. Oliver, who was supposed to be rational and fearless, ran frantically, practically scrambling through the forest, without pausing and looking anywhere, for safety, being caught in the grip of an unknown fear, after having an encounter with a boy sitting alone on a rock, in the forest and sobbing with no eyes, ears, nose or mouth.
3. What did Mr. Oliver answer the watchman’s questions in the above extract?
In reply to the watchman’s questions, whether there has been an accident and the reason for his running, Mr. Oliver replied that he saw something awful, a boy weeping and the boy had no features. He had no eyes, ears, nose or mouth.
4. The story ends with a thrilling climax. Do you agree? Why?
I definitely agree with the view that the story has ended with a thrilling climax. The author has ended the story at a point where no one knows what has happened to Mr. Oliver after that. Whether he was alive or whether he succeeded in overcoming his fears has not been revealed. Many inferences can be drawn regarding the fate of Mr. Oliver. He might have fainted for some time and then recovered. He might have suffered from an illusion due to his living alone that got him into the grip of psychological fears that gave rise to these imaginary, faceless creatures, roaming in the pine forest or there were chances that Mr. Oliver have suffered an attack of prospagnesia in which one fails to get the clear vision of the features or anything like these have happened. The author has ended the story abruptly, leaving the readers to assess the fat6e and future of Mr. Oliver, which is fully in keeping with the view that the storey, “Face in the Dark” really has thrilling climax
5. Comment on the appropriateness of the title of the story.
The very title of the story, “A Face in the Dark” itself speaks of its appropriateness. Mr. Oliver on his way to school, on a windy night, encounters a boy sitting alone on a rock in the forest. Mr. Oliver, having expressed concern for the boy asks the boy for the reason to be out of school at that moment in that condition. Having asked the boy to raise his face, Mr. Oliver finds that the boy is faceless and featureless. He had no eyes, ears, nose or mouth; Mr. Oliver runs for safely and bumps upon the watchman who was then coming on the way with a lantern. In reply to the watchman’s question of why Mr. Oliver was running, Mr. Oliver replies the awful experience and to his utter suprise3 and dismay, finds the watchman too faceless and feature3less. Thus we find that boy and the watchman, who appeared to be having a ‘face’ in the dark, did not have a face when seen in the light. Ruskin Bond in one article says, “After dark we see and hear many things that seem mysterious and irrational and then, by the clear light of the day, we find that the magic and the mystery have an explanation after all.”
Therefore, the title, “A Face in the Dark” is quite appropriate as it makes the readers debate upon the existence of the mysterious world, which is outside our material world.
