Literary Doodles

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:59 AM

The Great Doodle of Northrop Frye

Shown below is a "Story Circle" based on the work of Joseph Campbell.
The author of this particular version is unknown.  

Note that there are 12 steps in the above Story Circle. This suggests
some dialogue from a recent film . . .

Donnie —"We can't ask for help if we don't think there's anyone out there to give it. You have to grasp this concept. And that doesn't have to be fucking Jesus Christ or Buddha or Vanna White."
John — "So, can I choose the genitalia of Raquel Welch?"
Donnie — "I would advise against that, Callahan."
John — "Why?"
Donnie — "'Cause it's not a fucking joke. If you can't look outside yourself and you can't find a higher power, you're fucked."

Doodle

From "The Educated Imagination: A Website Dedicated
to Northrop Frye
" —

"In one of the notebooks for his first Bible book Frye writes,

'For at least 25 years I’ve been preoccupied by
the notion of a key to all mythologies.' . . . .

Frye made a valiant effort to provide a key to all mythology,
trying to fit everything into what he called the Great Doodle. . . ."

From a different page at the same website —

Here Frye provides a diagram of four sextets.

I prefer the Miracle Octad Generator of R. T. Curtis —

Counting symmetries with the orbit-stabilizer theorem.

On Universals and
A Passage to India
 :
 
"The universe, then, is less intimation
than cipher: a mask rather than a revelation
in the romantic sense. Does love meet with love?
Do we receive but what we give? The answer is
surely a paradox, the paradox that there are
Platonic universals beyond, but that the glass
is too dark to see them. Is there a light beyond
the glass, or is it a mirror only to the self?
The Platonic cave is even darker than Plato
made it, for it introduces the echo, and so
leaves us back in the world of men, which does
not carry total meaning, is just a story of events."
 
– Betty Jay, reader's guide to A Passage to India
