  • Gulf Coast Volume 19, Number 2

    Since some of you were asking . . .

    The below series of plates traces the evolution of Sam Page One over the years.

    Special thanks to Gulf Coast "started and overseen for a good while by the inimitable Donald Barthelme."

        I think the most interesting image is the fourth one, which illustrates the relationship of the history gutter to the story. I have had a hard time making implicit connections, but this seems to show that the words MZD uses correlate heavily with what was going on at the time.

            Excellent.

            I also like how the fifth one has dots where the animals will be inserted later. I wonder if the number of dots means anything?

              Maybe the number of letters ? (only supposition, because on my computer, the enlarged pic is not clear enough)

                I really like the term "chronomosaic" (MZD name for the history gutter) because that's what it; is a mosaic made of time :)

                  Isn't "Only Evolutions" the title of the article?

                  If it isn't, and considering we're only seeing Sam's stuff so far, it made me think that perhaps Danielewski was initially going for some sort of Orlando type approach, but that's conjecture

                    Maybe the number of dots represents how many syllables need to be filled up? I'm not sure about all the ins and outs of whatever meter there is in OR, but my experience is that there's definitely a rhythm at the very least and he probably had one in mind.

                            We did that too, but I was determined to find one. I found one used on Google from a bookseller called Books Inc.
