Rather than post, I recommend a book entitled Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson. This is a slim book based on the epic poem, Geryoneïs, as told by the sixth century poet Stesichorus. The main character is a red boy with wings who comes of age in a story set in a variety of times, told by a series of narrators, and in diverse stylistic modes. This is beautiful and jarring poem/tale. This book like the Jeanette Winterson novel, Written on the Body, I recently read, is a written compliment to theoretical ideas.
Note: I exchanged one of my possessions for Written on the Body when Nancy Nesbit came through Champaign Urbana and stopped at OPENSOURCE Art. She is engaged in a yearlong project, Exchange, where she is driving every one of her possessions across Canada, the United States, and Mexico and exchanging objects and stories along the way.
