I thought this short story really gave an interesting insight to compassion. L’administration quelque part, loin, lui donne un ordre: Why didn’t I get a memo or something, just to check before?

The story brings about the modernism conflict: Daru seemed more concerned with his prestige than to follow Balducci’s or the higher-ups’ orders, so there couldn’t have been a chance for reasonable trust on the arab either In this vast landscape he had loved so much, he was alone.

The old gendarme, Balducci by name, a man Daru has known for a long time, tells Daru how it is with him and the Arab.

This story just goes to show, what we give to the world, is not always returned to us. His presence is his absence, including his heroic action.
