Hegel is not a contingency historian, though he believes that chance occurrences do in fact happen in particular (or limited) historical events. On the other hand, the term "naturalism" shows up in its proper perspective as a phase of fiction which, rather like the detective story, though in a very different way, begins as an intensification of low mimetic, an attempt to describe life exactly as it is, and ends, by the very logic of that attempt, in pure irony. In this situation the hero is usually himself at least partly a comic humor or mental runaway, and we have either a hero's illusion thwarted by a superior reality or a clash of two illusions.

The final confirmation of this scenario is the appearance of Marianne, unmistakably in the role of the glamorous mother figure, who arrives to show off her dancing shoes to this child for a moment, to exchange endearments and to bestow a night-time kiss.4 It is part of the force of this moment that we know Marianne to be pregnant; we might say that it is a shadow of another night that may come to pass if this marriage survives, and, being such a portent, perhaps implies that it 31 might do so.
