The Apophenic Diaries
AltmetricsView Usage Statistics
This is a book of poetry. It is written in prose. Therefore, you may want to read something else. If, it turns out, you do want to read poetry in prose with your very limited time, I can tell you a little about this project. It is a study of apophenia, which is a condition of schizophrenia that entails making undue meaning out of the stimuli that one senses. Under such circumstances, unrelated stimuli are ultimately conflated and associated with each other in patterns of erroneous connection. I wanted to experiment with turning apophenia loose on my Comprehensive Reading list—to create a web between these required readings as they were filtered through my apophenic mind. The product is this manuscript—it is about the American malaise which mirrors psychosis, it is about celibacy, and it is about the quest for enlightenment. Happy reading.
