Materiality 2 from Architectures

Materiality and Sukenick's 98.6 "destruction" of language...

The &Now p. 171--word bubbles, but it's more about the appearance than story or poem (a concrete work)

Art books like Griffin and Sabine, an epistolary trilogy that has actual letters in actual envelopes, and a lot of graphic detail (show and tell in class)...

Shelley Jackson's process (Architectures p. 201), and her physical, global works like Skin (tattooed on people all over the world) and Snow

William Gass's Willy Master's Lonesome Wife, a postmodern novella that has a naked female eating the text, and coffee stains, and words falling off the page...

The Stinky Cheese Man that has postmodern interruptions from The Little Red Hed on the inside flap and the back cover etc., and meta interruptions from Jack, the narrator (something for kids and adults, like Shrek)...

Maus, a graphic novel about the artist's father who survived the Holocaust...the Jews are rats, the Nazi's are cats...postmodern metafiction and memoir and graphic story telling...

Nimona, a web comic that has postmodern elements (tech, cyborg, shape shifters, knights, good vs evil and evil as good, paranoia of the state and it's power, propaganda)

Miletti and the unreliable narrator, and stories within stories

Barthes!!!!!!!

Also look at another book with a young character (but an older narrator), The Book Theif (as per Nathan's suggestion)...and other YA novels (Children and Young Adult award winners: Three Times Lucky; Seraphina); also, Nimona, an award winning weekly web comic (or soon to be graphic novel)

Concrete/Conceptual work like Stein's Tender Buttons (not concrete), or pieces in The &Now like Williams p. 207 or Spitzer's poem? p. 195 (very concrete/visual and blissy, thwarting the reader's desire for narrative, or even sentences, even characters)...also see Ubuweb

 

--The &Now: Kress p. 218+; Martin p. 227+
