AbstractHistoryArchive Description

It is June 2017 and I'm writing a thesis on Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities. It's a novel in which words and sentences are conditional. In one glance, they solidify and signify. In the next, they relax into shapelessness. Sometimes I materialise patterns of images, references, dialogue, mapping a route through the novel toward an answer. Invariably, new information topples the interpretation I am building, and my understanding is deferred until tomorrow and beyond. I feel like the character of Marco Polo, when he speaks of a city named Tamara.'

The days seem to have gotten longer really suddenly—it was still light out when I arrived, and, as everyone sat around carefully collating stacks of printed pages, two rainbows—one single and one double—were shining above the house.'
