The object of his feelings is a married woman, which is also the case in Flaubert's fragment of a story. In both cases the husbands are characterized similarly: an "idiot" in Flaubert and a "very disturbed man" in Oates Wendell is lucky; he wins his woman, and he feels genuinely loved, but love does not solve his problems, as it turns out.
Projecting his own feelings of inadequacy onto his wife, he claims that he can sense her desire "to escape, to get out-better leave this sick man while she is still healthy! Flaubert's nameless character fares less well; he never wins the woman's love, but lingers on helping her and her family.
He is also a miserable failure in everything he undertakes from love to duels and business; he is simply "successful at nothing. Wendell observes her in the park, as he is waiting there for Joanne's magic telephone call that might change his life. This is a girl in her twenties, very thin, either mentally disturbed or drugged, oddly dressed in a colorful poncho. Barefoot, she ambles around like a somnambulator singing, unaware of others. Her face is described as "odd," caving inward, with tiny eyes, tiny nose and a chin that "seemed to melt away" Everything about her is "blank:" her voice, her eyes.
This adjective is repeated whenever the girl reappears. The very word is also used as a link to Wendell, as he feels a "puddle of blankness" beginning to form "[a]t the back of his skull He is putting all his faith into a relationship with Joanne; life without her would be meaningless.
In other words he can identify with the girl, who certainly seems to exist in her own world, but he expects Joanne, or love, to save him from an equally "blank," or meaningless life. As it turns out, neither one will do so. He can hear someone say: " Don't stop breathing! Being a doctor he performs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on her.

Angrily he murmurs "You are not going to die! Is this a dream, his constant wish to do good, or a projection of his own fear of death? He still feels as paralyzed as he had been at the theater. Yet, when the girl makes "an intimate gesture" with her hand, he begins to undress in the park. He sees the girl as " his true bride " repeated three times , he falls to his knees, grasping her ankles, kissing her feet while weeping He might be mixing her up with Joanne or see her as an elusive extension of things he cannot reach, but more likely his attraction to the girl's otherworldliness signifies a "marriage" of like minds.

For Flaubert's man, acts of goodness will be rewarded by dreams that enable him to escape. Immediately following the initial suicide note, "an opportunity to do good presents itself," and that will start off the entire action of the novel. Like Christ he would like to raise people from the dead, but realizes his powers are limited to at least "snatch[ing] the living away from death at the very last second, stirring their limbs, breathing his own life into them" That is literally what he does, or dreams of doing, to the girl in the park.

The tragedy of it is that he can heal others, but not himself. His belief is that everyone shares this desire to be good, that it is "a way of managing life" They are torn between reality and dream. Flaubert states that for his, "real life situations must be found that are as intense as possible--filled with drama and sentiment. While Flaubert's man quickly moves from one exotic scene to another, from one problem to another, Wendell also moves between different levels, from reality to fantasy, into the past as well. That is also recommended by Flaubert who suggests a gradual return from the Orient to feudalism, revolution, even the crusades: "Commence by any action, a trial?
Both major characters are looking for change. Wendell believes that marriage will turn his life around at the outset of the short story. At the end we realize that this was not so. Flaubert's man seeks to move from the real into the fantastic state. However, Flaubert emphasizes several times that this change must be "progressive" or "gradual. In reality that means life in a mental hospital where the world will regard him as crazy. This is indeed an example of the myth of the "happy fool. Once when eating a hot dog he reflects upon "his spirit, whimsically, lifting itself from his body.
He asks himself whether this change signifies "[f]reedom or dissolution? At the end, in the movie theater, Wendell feels that he has "succumbed to nothingness, now that he is no longer a man" Even as a young man Wendell has the premonition that "[l]ife will leak out of him" due to life's many "scratches" that he can foresee The first one is always placed on the left-hand side of the page, while the second is found on the right-hand side. Both are capitalized and used as headlines. His Tentation de Saint Antoine in fact ends in an extatic "descent into the very heart of matter -- being matter!
They also tie in with the central themes of change, doubleness and the gradual progression toward either a breakdown, as in Oates, or total folly, as in Flaubert. Ultimately, all these elements coalesce in the spiralling movement in the direction of infinity implied by the title itself. Not only does this particular film provide us with a French cultural connection, but its central plot is an echo of the triangular dramas in both Flaubert and Oates. We get to follow them through the years to see how their relations change.
It is the final scene where the husband, the sole survivor, is lamenting the passing of the two others that leaves a lasting impression upon Wendell. As a medical man, he is fascinated by the "bones" at the end. In a cremation scene bones from the two dead bodies are ground down and placed in two different boxes, although Jules had wanted them to remain mixed and together even in death.
Wendell wonders whether you could actually "tell the bones apart? At this point he identifies with the bones of the dead, believing that his two companions will "stare at him as if staring at bones, mere bones, seeing no value in him His Pakistani friend shakes his head and laughs at the film. From his cultural perspective it is a foolish and strange film. Joanne reacts emotionally. She is moved: "What a strange ending, after all that She might be speaking about her own second marriage, without knowing it. As Fischer has pointed out, it serves both a symbolic and metaphysical function.
Briefly, it symbolizes the protagonists' slow detachment from reality into spatial spheres toward infinity. It also reflects the major themes of change and gradual movement in the form of ever-widening spirals. Entitled "Le Thyrse," this poem may shed some further light on the subject of spirals.
Since its title was difficult to understand, Baudelaire carefully explained what a "thyrse" was, i e, a staff in the hands of priests or priestesses for ritual ceremonies. It is simply a hard and straight wooden stick, surrounded by garlands of flowers, thus incorporating both the male and the female principle as well as the spiralling movement. Reality is more of a straight, wooden and bare stick to him, while the meandering, even dancing, garlands of flowers then would represent the beauty of dreams and fantasy.
For Oates, on the other hand, Flaubert's skeletal outline may appear as the bare staff, or bone, onto which she can graft her decorations, to fill out and round off, for a completed story called "The Spiral.
