Returning to the House, he feels inferior because of his hospital stay and lowly employment and realizes that he can no longer reside there. The narrator wanders back to Men's House and instantly feels inferior as his overalls differentiate him from thced that the new emergence would be healthier than the unity of opposites, that pretense would be healthier than reality. The narrator cannot escape that easily though as he will later learn that there is no place for him inside of history. He had outrun Jack on the rooftops but does not succeed in shedding off the pretense of his existence for quite awhile.
