    Question the meaning of the passage

    hi,
    would you please give me the meaning of the passage below?

    he becomes not so much an exponent of illusionless hedonism as a psychological study who is brought, through a gratuitous, sun-dazzled act and its merciless social consequences, to a rapport with his dead mother and a recognition of his fraternity with the gentle indifference of the world- a palpable improvement upon Gilbert's grander phrase "the benign indifference of the universe".


    thanks in advance

    Hi Ever Student

    It would be helpful, in future, if you provide some details of context e.g:

    The Translation studies reader - Google Books

    Regards

    PS I'm afraid that inordinately long academic texts such as this, with complex vocabulary, leave me, personally, somewhat cold.
