BOOKS OF THE TIMES
The book under review is a biography of William Golding, also quoted here in "Harrowing."
From that post—
“There is a suggestion of Christ descending into the abyss for the harrowing of Hell. But it is the Consul whom we think of here, rather than of Christ. The Consul is hurled into this abyss at the end of the novel.”
– Stephen Spender, introduction to Malcolm Lowry's Under the Volcano
Theater of Truth
rift-design— Definition by Deborah Levitt—
"Rift. The stroke or rending by which a world worlds, opening both the 'old' world and the self-concealing earth to the possibility of a new world. As well as being this stroke, the rift is the site— the furrow or crack— created by the stroke. As the 'rift design' it is the particular characteristics or traits of this furrow."
– "Heidegger and the Theater of Truth," in Tympanum: A Journal of Comparative Literary Studies, Vol. 1, 1998
