Hi Earl. I have an idea for a final project, and want
to run it by you to see if it’s alright. I’d like to
revise my midquarter, preferably by omitting the
Karatani and focusing more on the subject/other
another text. This is all still pretty nebulous, but
I think it would make more sense than what I was
initially attempting to do with the
when I reread, the text makes more sense and I’m
better able to intertextualize it and *render it
by associating and contextualizing it in
terms of its historical
and theoretical implications.
This is not so with my continued reading of Karatani.
The more I read it the more confused I become, kind of
like your increasing disappointment with
_Wind-Up Bird Chronicle_.
Moving on, I’d like to attach my revised midquarter
with a shorter paper on Murakami. I’m still torn
between _A Wild Sheep Chase_ and _Wind-Up_, mostly
because I still hypothesize that _Wind-Up_ deals in a
large part with the idea of
authorship. Perhaps it’s
a catching the catfish moment. When I catch
perhaps I’ll call it Mackerel or, better yet, Kipper.
Maybe my increasing confusion with the Karatani
is a torpedo-fish
moment leading up to a catfish
but each time I read it I’m increasingly shocked
In deference to the Knight’s
hoping this isn’t too May Kasahara-esque, I bid you a
To advanced reading one
