Mephistopheles, the young demi-diabolical anaemic rogue and antihero of the story, is architect to and victim of ennui-swept landscapes, haunted antique interiors and richly encrusted paint surfaces. Scenarios are concocted in which we discover our boy in a solitary moment or are witnesses to the melancholic ruins of his absence.
