At a much deeper level, it is a study of what Russians call oblomovschina, the paralysis of the will. The Stepson is a nullity with ambitions as long as he neednt do anything to advance them. He doesnt act, he undergoes. It is the intricate, torturously rationalized play of his passivity before fate that makes this one of Boves most fascinating novels, a sort of tragic bedroom farce.
