Liebestod (love-death) means the two lovers’ consummation of their love in death or after death.
this collection, i think, in conjuction with the idea of the snow storm “like an extra dimension out there. Less an element that its own dimension…with its own rules, laws. Awe-inspiring. Fearsome” (p.877) is perhaps a better description of this book’s theme. also the idea of being horizontal as opposed to vertical, (i’m a highly tuned horizontal antenna tuned into you lying right here p. 908), and also let’s check into fourier. also holography (of course) and annulation. and high D (musically). i can see a pile of papers to be written really, and luckily i’m not in school so i can just write them in my head and then move on the next book. which will be schoonover’s portraits of the mind. which i guess i will have to renew since wallace took much longer than i’d planned.
it is, however, warm.
