The italics denote the importance of the narrator's thoughts, and what is, in fact, a discovery about himself. The vision of the evicted couple get through to the narrator in a way that almost nothing else has. In their presence he finds his own relation to the past; they parallel his own sense of estrangement, and they in a sense bring him home.
