    The Simplicity of Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep Raymond Chandler would like us to believe that The Big Sleep is just another example of hard-boiled detective fiction. He would like readers to see Philip Marlowe, Vivian Regan, Carmen Sternwood, Eddie Mars, and the rest of the characters as either "good guys" or "bad guys" with no deeper meaning or symbolism to them. I found the book simple and easy to understand; the problem was that it was too easy, too simple. Then came one part that

    Simplicity is the essence of universality. (Mind of Mahatma Gandhi; Prabhu & Rao) All that is completely free of whatever is ostensible and frivolous is simple. Something cannot be made to ‘appear’ simple. It has to be simple. In the entire universe do we have anything which exists just for the sake of appearance?

    His choice to use "darkest evening of the year" helps to set the mystery surrounding death, but the simplicity of the character and the scenery bring death closer to nature; "suddenly the absolute is brought near, and made almost visible" (Nicholl 194). The individual man encountering woods that are "lovely, dark, and deep" create a contradiction of feelings that intertwine the mystery and simplicity of death.
