    Dark vs Darkness

    Dear friends;

    I am a little curious about the title of the last book written by Paul Auster. It is called “Man in the dark”; and my question is: is there any difference between that name and “Man in the darkness”?

    Thanks!

    Their meanings are very close, but in this case, dark is better.

    I'd use a dictionary to learn the difference.
