A Clean Well Lighted Place pdf

Late at night, a deaf old man is a sole patron in a cafe. Nearby, two waiters, one young, the other older, talk about him. When the old man orders another brandy, the young waiter purposefully overfills his glass. The waiters speculate about the old man’s recent suicide attempt. The young waiter wants the patron to go home and complains that he never gets to bed before three o’clock, while the older waiter is more understanding of the old man’s plight. Again the old man asks for another brandy, but this time the young man tells him the cafe is closed. After he leaves, the waiters resume their discussion. The young waiter wants to hurry home to his wife; the older waiter is more thoughtful. He muses on youth and observes that he is now one of those who like to stay late in the cafe likening himself to the old man. He mentions the importance to some people of having “a clean, well-lighted place” in which they can spend time. After the young waiter leaves, the older waiter reflects on the emptiness of his own life and returns to his home and his insomnia.
