The Hour of the Star Chapter 7 Summary

  • This chapter starts with the word and sentence: "Silence" (7.457).
  • The narrator asks us if the ending of his story was as grand as we expected.
  • Um … yes?
  • He ends this section with: "At heart, Macabéa was little better than a music box sadly out of tune. I ask you: what is the weight of light?" (7.460-461).
  • So, here is a fun list of things the narrator compares Macabéa to in her death: out-of-tune music, bells that don't make sound, air, and light.
