But the thing I didn't care a damn about, didn't even grasp to be happening, was the passing-away of the old life I'd know. (Coming up for air)
What is the object of the verb grasp ? Is it the thing or relativizer which ?
I think the relativizer which is understood to be between the thing and I but was omitted.
And I wonder if having either the thing or which as an object will result in a difference in meaning.
And what is the implied subject of to be happening , is it the thing or which?
Do they mean the same?
I wonder if having either the thing or which as an implied subject will result in a difference in meaning in this case.
