William H. Gass reportedly died on December 6

Filed under: General — m759 @ 2:04 PM

"William H. Gass, a proudly postmodern author
who valued form and language
more than literary conventions
like plot and character
and who had a broad influence
on other experimental writers
of the 1960s, ’70s and beyond,
died on Wednesday in St. Louis. He was 93."

Dee Wedemeyer, The New York Times ,

"Mr. Gass was widely credited with coining the term
'metafiction' to describe writing in which the author
is part of the story. He himself was one of the form’s
foremost practitioners." — ibid.

Some narrative for a ghost writer —

IMAGE- The 2001 film 'The Discovery of Heaven'

I prefer the following narrative —

Part I:  Stevens’s verse from “The Rock” (1954) —
“That in which space itself is contained”

Part II:  Mystery Box III: Inside, Outside (2014)

Night’s Hymn of the Rock

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: , , — m759 @ 3:33 AM

One way of interpreting the symbol  IMAGE- Modal Diamond in a square 
at the end of yesterday's post is via
the phrase "necessary possibility."

See that phrase in (for instance) a post
of July 24, 2013, The Broken Tablet .

The Tablet  post may be viewed in light
of a Tom Wolfe passage quoted here on
the preceding day, July 23, 2013—

IMAGE- Tom Wolfe in 'The Painted Word' on conceptual art

On that  day (July 23) another weblog had
a post titled

Wallace Stevens: Night's Hymn of the Rock.

Some related narrative —

IMAGE- The 2001 film 'The Discovery of Heaven'

I prefer the following narrative —

Part I:  Stevens's verse from "The Rock" (1954) —
"That in which space itself is contained"

Part II:  Mystery Box III: Inside, Outside (2014)

Heaven’s Gate continues

In memory of Dutch author Harry Mulisch

The Discovery of Heaven

http://www.log24.com/log/pix10B/101031-DiscoveryOfHeaven.jpg

Mulisch died at his home in Amsterdam on the evening of October 30.

The Discovery of Heaven  was made into a film in 2001 by Jeroen Krabbé,
brother of Tim Krabbé. The latter is the author of the novel The Cave
(1997, first published in English in 2000 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux).

The Cave  is notable for a phrase, "a hole in time."
