Abstract: This thesis consists of seven stories, the titles of which are: "Mr. Rudishill," "Streetcars," "The Garden," "Summertime," "0, Roger," "A Month of Sundays," and "House of Gifts." The themes of these stories deal in some way with the problem of the individual's shaping his own reality; almost all of them are about love and its bearing on the nature of reality. Most of the characters are at least half mad, the purpose of the eccentricities being to better isolate and delineate certain problems. In all ordinary situations there seems to be eccentricity; in all ordinary eccentricity and in madness there seems to be a kind of frenetic sanity, which, because it clarifies in an odd way, is almost peaceful and reassuring to the observer, even if what it clarifies is sad.
