Abstract

A theme of search emerges from Henry James's story "The Figure in the Carpet.” The search involves three characters and their pursuit of a "secret" which is to be found in the writings of the novelist, Hugh Vereker. The narrator is one of the characters involved in the search. His story tells not only of his attempts to find the "secret," but also of his separation from the other characters and from Vereker's "secret.”
