How is the general arc of the entire novel reflected in changes in the setting?
The scenes become increasingly ethereal as the novel progresses.
Meursault's descriptions of the setting become less precise as he loses touch with his surroundings.
Like the arc of the story, the setting changes minimally during the novel.
The expansiveness Meursault feels in the first half gives way to a pervasive sense of isolation in part 2.
The setting becomes more surreal as the absurdity of Meursault's situation unfolds.
