The present study explores the spatial, temporal and affectual structures in Saul Bellow’s Mr. Sammler’s Planet implementing a deictic center approach to the analysis. The premises we adopt imply a cognitive-phenomenological shift into the world of the narrative (the story world), into the conceptual locus of the deictic center, the moving space-time location where narrative processing and interpretation occur. The investigations reveal striking similarities in the organization of the aforementioned structures analyzed.
