David Lodge's Small World avoids closure, and further contains a seemingly endless number of references to prior texts. It thus encourages the reader to make his own interpretation of the book, based on his personal literary experiences. This study explores one possible interpretation, and draws an analog between Lodge's book and the great Baroque novels of seventeenth-century France.
