(Spoof) Early Chapters

The Onion | Area Man Well-Versed In First Thirds Of Great Literature You know, not such a bad idea, actually. I like this idea of going against the notion of a book as a complete form. Multiple readings, voices, interpretations, which run against the canon by using the canon. Nicey! Yeah, yeah. It's intended to show that you can't be well-read if you haven't read the whole works. But what's fun with a book is partly that we can do whatever we want with it. If I want to start with the final chapter, so be it. If I want to peruse and browse, catching glimpses of thought-provoking notions, who's preventing me. Let's break free of the narrative structure! Let's go back to excerpts of Greimas, Guattari, Bakhtin, Propp, Genette, Barthes, Gramsci, and Derrida to fight linearity, hegemony, discourse, and dialogue! ;-)
