Invisible
The following extract is taken from the novel “Invisible” by Paul Auster (London 2009, pp. 62-65). Here the narrator, a young student of literature, is walking home through New York City with his professor, Born, a respectable man of about 50, who has just asked the narrator to become the editor of a literary magazine.

We crossed over to the eastern sidewalk of Riverside Drive and began walking downtown. Several streetlamps had burned out, and as we approached the corner of West 112th, we found ourselves entering a blocklong stretch of murk and darkness. Night had fallen in earnest by then, and it was difficult to see anything more than a
5
yard or two in front of us. I lit up a cigarette, and through the glow of the match burning near my mouth, I glimpsed the shadowy outline of a figure emerging from a blackened doorway. A second later, Born grabbed my arm and told me to stop. Just that one word: Stop. I let the match fall from my hand and tossed the cigarette into the gutter. The figure was coming toward us, unmistakably walking in our
10
direction, and after a few more steps I saw that it was a black kid dressed in dark clothes. He was rather short, probably no more than sixteen or seventeen, but after another three or four steps, I finally understood why Born had grabbed my arm, finally saw what he had already seen. The kid was holding a gun in his left hand. The gun was pointed at us, and just like that, with a single tick of the clock, the entire
15
universe had changed. The kid wasn’t a person anymore. He was that gun and nothing else, the nightmare gun that lived in every New Yorker’s imagination, the heartless, inhuman gun that was destined to find you alone one night on a darkened street and send you to an early grave.
Fork it over. Empty your pockets. Shut up. A moment earlier, I had been on top of
20
the world, and now, suddenly, I was more afraid than I had ever been in my life.
The kid stopped about two feet in front of us, pointed the gun at my chest, and said: Don’t move.
He was close enough now for me to see his face, and as far as I could tell he looked scared, not at all confident about what he was doing. How could I have known this?
25
Perhaps it was something in his eyes, or perhaps I had detected a slight tremor in his lower lip – I can’t be sure. Fear made me blind, and whatever sense I had of him must have come to me through my pores, a subliminal osmosis, so to speak, knowledge without consciousness, but I was almost certain that he was a beginner, a novice thug out on his first or second job.
30
Born was standing to my left, and after a moment I heard him say: What do you want from us? There was a small quiver in his voice, but at least he had managed to speak, which was more than I was capable of doing just then.
Your money, the kid said. Your money and your watch. Both of you. Wallets first. And be quick about it. I ain’t got all night. I reached into my pocket for my billfold,
35
but Born chose to unexpectedly make a stand. A stupid move, I thought, an act of defiance that could wind up getting us both killed, but there wasn’t a thing I could do about it.
And what if I don’t want to give you my money? he asked.
Then I’ll shoot you, mister, the kid said. I’ll shoot you and take your wallet anyway.
40
Born let out a long, histrionic sigh. You’re going to regret this, little man, he said.
Why don’t you just run along now and leave us alone?
Why don’t you just shut your fucking mouth and give me your wallet? the kid answered, thrusting the gun into the air a couple of times for emphasis.
As you wish, Born replied. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.
45
I was still looking at the kid, which meant that I had only a vague, peripheral view of Born, but at the last second I turned my head slightly to the left and saw him reach into the inside breast pocket of his jacket. I assumed he was going for his billfold, but when his hand emerged from the pocket it was bunched up into a fist, as if he was hiding something, concealing some object in his closed palm. I couldn’t begin to
50
guess what that thing might have been. An instant later, I heard a click, and the blade of a knife jumped out of its sheath. With a hard, upward thrust, Born immediately stabbed the kid with the switchblade – straight in the stomach, a dead-center hit. The boy grunted as the steel tore through his flesh, grabbed his stomach with his right hand, and slowly sank to the ground.
55
Shit, man, he said. It ain’t even loaded.

Auster's "Invisible" is set in the late 60s when the USA faced many riots and revolts between the white and the black population. Back then, the crime rate was considerably high. The extract from Auster's novel picks up the issue of crime.
The narrator and his companion are about to be robbed by a insecure black kid. It is already dark and they are at a corner in South Harlem, a very poor district in the 70s of New York.
Schluss

Hintergrund

Zeitliche Einordnung
The narrator seems to be attentive from the moment they both reach "the corner of West 112th" (Text, line 3). He finds it difficult to see anything because of "murk and darkness" (Text, line 3) surrounding them. "The shadowy outline of a figure" (Text, line 6) approaches them and the narrator reacts with great presence of mind to Born's order to stop. The use of the words "murk" and "shadowy" reflect the receptive attitude of the narrator. They create a mystical but dangerous atmosphere and the narrator appears to be just waiting for something to happen.
Atmosphäre am Anfang
As soons as he sees that the kid is carrying a gun his "entire universe change[s]" (Text, line 14-15). He focuses only on the gun and doesn't realize that it is only a kid that is holding a weapon. He doesn't even consider that together with his companion they both could easily overpower the kid. All he is able to think about is the gun, "the nightmare gun […], the heartless, inhuman gun that was destined to find you alone […] and send you to an early grave" (Text, line 16-18). He is fixated on the weapon and is sure that the gun will kill them. He is terrified, almost petrified. He admits that he "was more afraid than [he] had ever been in [his] life" (Text, line 20).
Although the narrator is completely consumed by his fear of death and of the deadly weapon pointing at him he realizes after a short while that their attacker is very young and "not at all confident about what he was doing" (Text, line 24). He perceives the kid's lack of expierence fear makes him blind (cf. Text, line 26). The narrator is blind and trapped because of his fear. Nevertheless, he can think and react by using his "knowledge without consciousness" (Text, line 28). He is like a trapped animal, which confronted with danger makes its decisions on the basis of his instincts.
Then, the narrator is impressed by Born's defiance against the attacker's robbery: "at least he had managed to speak, which was more than I was capable of doing just then" (Text, line 31-32).
Although, the narrator is impressed by Born's courage he still is ready to give in quietly. When the kid demands repeatedly for their wallets, the narrator reaches for his money (cf. Text, line 34). Now, he fears that Born's courage "could wind up getting [them] both killed" (Text, line 36). Also, he is sure that there isn't "a thing [he] could do about it" (Text, line 36- 37). He is still consumed by his fear and cannot think of defending them both. That is why he is rather surprised and cought unaware when he sees how Born stabs the kid at the end of the extract.
Emotionen des Erzählers
As soon as the narrator sees the gun he is consumed by fear. He doesn't believe in himself and he doesn't even try to defent himself or his companion. He is unaware that they both could easily overpower the kid. Fear and terror caused by a gun, that isn't even loaded, keep a firm grip on him. He is depentent on Born's reaction although he fears that, too.

Criminality is a woldwide phenomenon and crime exists in various forms. There is organized crime that aims at money and profit but it can also happen for political reasons. Then, there are crimes against persons, such as assault, kidnapping or murder. Also, there are crimes against objects, such as robbery, burglary and many more.
Einleitung
When the young narrator and Born, his elder companion, reach the corner of a street they get a attacked by a black kid. The narrator is instantly trapped by his fear. He is unable to react and to defend himself. Readily, he wants to give out all of his money seeing only the gun pointing at him. He reacts in complete contrast to his companion Born. Born shows some fear, because he acknowledges that he could die because of that gun. But he refuses to comply with being robbed. He doesn't want to accept it. "And what if i don't give you my money" (Text, line 38), he askes the kid stubbornly. The kid insist and tells him that he is going to kill him. Again, Born warns the kid and sends him away, but the kid doesn't listen to him. And that is when Born reaches for his knife and kills the young man.
The kid's last words give away that the threat wasn't as deadly as assumed. "Shit, man, he said. It ain't even loaded" (Text, line 55). One can presume, that the kid wanted to steal the characters' money because he is part of the American underpriviledged society. He is ready to steal some stranger's money, because he needs it. He is young, maybe too young to be out on the streets late at night. Though he is insecure and probably hasn't commited a crime before he tries his luck. He doesn't want to kill anyone, he only needs some money. To his surprise he gets killed.
The kid's surprised reaction represents the negative outcome of many other young children and teenager who commit crimes and aren't aware of the possible consequences. They struggle in life and are part of the underpriviledged society with a predestined path.
Hauptteil

Reaktion des Erzählers und Born

Reaktion des Angreifers
The reaction of Born and the kid examines a deeply rooted problem of America's society. The kid represents the young people of the problematic areas of the United States who take the wrong path. There is also a reference to the inequalities between black and white people. The young delinquent is black and needs money whereas the victims of his attempted robbery are white. They are in a corner in Harlem, a district which was always famous for its rather poor residents. Who else could have attacked them if not a black person? It is a famous cliché and has been dealt with in many stories. In Gaines' A lesson before dying is the protagonist a young black deliquent who is innocently involved in a robbery and has to die at the end.
Another problem of America's society that is portrayed is the fact that half of the households in the country have at least one gun. The Constitution states that the people have the right to keep and bear arms. Born carries a knife with him because it is his right as an American citizen.
Reaktionen spiegeln Probleme in der amerikanischen Gesellschaft wider

Verweis auf A lesson before dying
The characters' reaction as described in the extract differ. Nevertheless, they represent similar problems of America's society. The two characters that get attracted are white. One of them is unable to defent himself or doesn't want to. The other takes all means to do so and is even prepared. He carries a knife with him and knows how to use it. The black kid wants to rob them and isn't even prepared for his victims to defend themselves. His gun isn't loaded, he is insecure. He presumes that his unloaded gun will scare his victims and make them do want he wants. But to his great surprise the worst happens and he gets killed.

It is a universally accepted principle that a person may protect himself from harm under appropriate circumstances, even when that behavior would normally constitute a crime. In the United States legal system, each state allows a defendant to claim self-defense when accused of a violent crime.
Born, one of the characters of the given extract, kills a young boy in order to defent himself and his young friend.
Einleitung
The young boy attacks them at the corner of a street and wants to rob them. He threatens them with his gun and wants their money. He tells them that if they don't give in he will kill them. At first glance, Born's reaction can be justified. There was someone threatening his life so he had to defend it. The Constitution allows American citizens to have and bear arms. Also, it allows them to use them for reasons of self-defence. But if the legal situation had been different the outcome of the story would have been different, too.
The following question needs to be asked:
Was Born's reaction self-defence or was it cold-hearted murder? On the one hand he defends himself and the narrator of the story. They were both going to be robbed and are threatened by a deadly weapon. But Born warns the kid only once.
Without hesitation he draws his knife and stabbes him lethally. He could have just drawn the knife and frighten the kid. Since the kid is very insecure and young he probably would have ran away at the mere sight of the knife. Nevertheless, Born doesn't give him a chance. Without having any scruples he stabs a teenager.
In the doctrine of human rights, every life in itself is as worth as any other life. Born doesn't respect that doctrine. In contrast to the kid, that carries an unloaded gun. The kid only wants to frightened or to be taken serious. He is young and needs money. Maybe, it is his only option to survive, his form of self-defence.
In Born's case it is questionable whether his extreme measure is to be justified. Self-defense only justifies the use of force when it is used in response to an immediate threat. The threat can be verbal, as long as it puts the intended victim in an immediate fear of physical harm. Offensive words without physical harm, however, do not justify the use of force in self-defense. But what matters in these situations is whether a “reasonable person” in the same situation would have perceived an immediate threat of physical harm.
Would be more reasonable to just threatend back with a knife, since the attacker was only a young person. So, is Born's reaction justified? All in all, the kid himself is very hesistant and threatens them verbally several times. He doesn't attack them physically. It can be assumed that Born's reaction is exaggerated and not justified. And moreover, Born had a choice. He could have just harmed the boy and not kill him.

Definition Selbstverteidigung
All in all, the kid himself is very hesistant and threatens them verbally several times. He doesn't want to attack them physically. At least he shows no attempts to do so. There is no evident phisical harm. In this respect, it can be assumed that Born's reaction is exaggerated and not justified.

Those were the kid's last word.
He coughed some blood out and then his eyes stared blankly at us. Accusingly. So I thought when I stared wide-eyed at the dead kid.
His gun wasn't even loaded. The words reached me hesitantly. As hesitant as the boy had threatened us. And so insecure. Now it was all clear to me when I looked at his smooth face. He was so very young.
His clothes were dirty. Maybe he just needed money. I awoke from my shock.

Einleitung:
Anschluss an das Endes des Textes

Gedanken des Erzählers
Born! Born! He is dead! The kid is dead!, were the only words I could cry out.

Indeed he is, we must go now, he said without revealing any of his feelings. Move! Be quick now!

I stared at him. I couldn't believe how cold-hearted he was. Although he had just killed a boy he showed no regrets. All he wanted was to leave as soon as possible.

direkte Rede

Gedanken des Erzählers
What? You just want to leave, Born? Just like that?, I asked him.

What do you want us to do? Wait for the police or what? Come on, Kid. We need to leave right now!, he replied.

But, Born, we have to explain what happened. We have to tell them, that he threatened us but that we didn't know that the gun was unloaded. We were sure that he would kill us. We have to explain why you did it. He was just a kid but it is so dark here. How could we have seen and known that he was no real threat? I implored him and I begged.
I had the urge to talk to someone about it. I wanted to justify the killing of a boy. I wanted to make sure, that the police knows what exactly happened. I wanted to sooth my conscience and forget that I wasn't even able to say something to that kid.
Entscheidung des Erzählers

Explain the police?, Born stared at me. Suddenly, he began to laugh as if I had told him a good joke. Explain what? They will look at him and know in an instant. It is just a black boy, they will say. They will add after a close look at his clothes, that he must have had some fight with some other gang member. File's closed, they will say. And now let us close this file and just go home. You will forget about this night either way. No newspaper will write about it, noone saw us here. So let us get out of here. I have enough, he said arrogantly and walked confidently away.

I followed him. Maybe he was right, maybe he wasn't. I will decide what there is to do later. After all, tomorrow is another day.
