Abstract: The problems explored in "A Chess Game" are neither new nor unique. The characters are involved in an attempt to impose order on and gain control over their destinies and as a result also face the disillusionment of the failure to do so. If the characters, events, or objects in the story take on any significance larger than themselves, it is to point out and so reduce that significance, to turn it back on itself and render it human. Certain liberties have been taken in punctuation and grammatical constructions in the story in an effort to achieve effects that seemed otherwise difficult to produce.
