The story arc vis-à-vis the setting

STRANG-QFVBQ8

How is the general arc of the entire novel reflected in changes in the setting?

A

The scenes become increasingly ethereal as the novel progresses.

B

Meursault's descriptions of the setting become less precise as he loses touch with his surroundings.

C

Like the arc of the story, the setting changes minimally during the novel.

D

The expansiveness Meursault feels in the first half gives way to a pervasive sense of isolation in part 2.

E

The setting becomes more surreal as the absurdity of Meursault's situation unfolds.
