Some anon in a thread on /his/ was talking about a direct connection between the narrative on "If on a Winter's Night a Traveller" and some of Barthes and Foucaults themes.

Does anyone know more about this? Google did not help me and I am not familiar enough with Foucault or Barthes to make a connection myself.

You can talk about the book, too. It's one of my favorite books ever written.

All the cities are Venice, which Marco tells from different points of view. All of the observations are true, yet none of them are the same. All of the lives are infinitely different, yet all are in the same place. Two people see the same thing and live the same event, yet both experiences are so vastly different from each other that they might as well not have witnessed the same thing at all.

Can we stop meming for a second and actually talk about books?

I didn't make much connection between IOaWNaT and Foucault, but Barthes makes a lot of sense. Ludmilla and Marana pretty obviously support the death of the author (albeit in different ways), where Lotaria does not. Flannery and the reader are trying to make sense of the whole thing, and in the end the reader realizes it doesn't matter and he should take control of his life to find his own happiness instead of following the whims of the competing ideological factions surrounding him and continuing on an impossible search for truth.
I thought it was very Nietzschian.
