about

"Not Chaos-like together crush’d and bruis’d,
But, as the world, harmoniously confus'd:
Where order in variety we see,
And where, tho’ all things differ, all agree."
—Alexander Pope, from "Windsor-Forest"

"A doomed project, perhaps, but who else has embraced this point of view? Difficult nowadays to find a point of view kinky enough to call one's own, with Sade himself being carried through the streets on the shoulders of sociologists, cheers and shouting, ticker tape unwinding from high windows..."
—Donald Barthelme, from "See the Moon?"

Special thanks to Phil Weinrobe, whose generosity and friendship made such an ambitious project both a possibility and a pleasure.
