Juliana is now an elderly lady who lives in "obscurity" with her spinster niece, Tita. Officially, to those who have sought unpublished Aspern material in the past, Juliana and Tita state that no such papers exist. The narrator takes rooms in the palace with no clear plan in mind--except to ascertain that the papers really exist, and to acquire them ... somehow
