Notes

Abstract: In this project, I am interested in examining White Noise and Democracy, two novels that demonstrate the difficulty of breaking out of traditional narrative styles in order to articulate a new way of thinking about narrative and representation. Both of these novels use first person narration, which is particularly effective in showing this challenge, and succeed in rethinking the structures of representation that imprison the possibilities of both art and subjectivity. I read these texts creatively, using primarily the writings of Gilles Deleuze in order to challenge readers and writers to recognize the animation and instability of thought. I call this style of rethinking narrative as a becoming of life an antirepresentational politics of narrative. The political nature of this style of thought is a micropolitics because I believe it is a great injustice to speak on behalf of another; therefore investments are determined to be worthwhile on a micro level, that is, if they "work" for the individual, in this case, me. I will read White Noise and Democracy and respond to them personally but informed by the writings of Gilles Deleuze.
