Terra Incognita Summary
Vallière who is also the narrator, his friend Gregson, and Cook – “reminiscent of a Shakespearean clown” – are escaping from Zaraki, trying to cross the yet unknown country to reach the Gurano Hills. The mission is ill-fated. Vallière is sick and febrile. Cook takes off with the Baconian porters, the supplies, and the collections. Gregson and Vallière decide to move on but are soon joined again by the contrite Cook who apparently was left behind by the Macedonians. The narrator is experiencing hallucinations as the journey winds down to its end. He sees at times in “ambiguous transparency” a wardrobe, a ceiling, wallpaper, an armchair, a tumbler with a teaspoon, a pillow, but these images on closer inspection dissolve into the surroundings of the expedition. Gregson and Cook start to quarrel and end up killing each other. The narrator is alone, his reality is the tropical world with the two corpses; he is getting weaker, fading away. “As a last motion” he tries to write something down, but the notebook has slipped. Groping along the blanket, he cannot find it.
