Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

Modeling Community and Narrative in Infinite Jest and The Pale King

exploring various narrative models in TPK and IJ: Contracted Realism (not really sure; a form of realism telling us new things about the world around us?) and Spontaneous Data Intrusion (random intrusions of data, or two elements of the narrative cutting into each other, as often occurs with Sylvanshine), in TPK ; Argot (creating a community via argot; references Wittgenstein) and Free Indirect Wraith (James Incandenza visiting Gately) in IJ. i don't really know what the main point in identifying these narrative models was, though. he never goes anywhere with them, other than to conclude that "Pale King and Infinite Jest aren't themselves communities; they are gestures to community, and to its limits".
