Narrative convention and expectation lead us to conceive of Molloy's narrative as a chronologically consistent account of a single journey, the events of which are causally, spatially and temporally related to each other. Drawing first upon the narration of the A and B episode, and then upon the evidence of the entire text, this article proposes that what Molloy relates is not, in fact, the story of a journey, nor of a journey, nor of a journey to his mother, hut is, rather, an achronic narrative organised according to the sylleptic theme of Molloy's permanent condition of journeying around the figure of his mother.
