idea is to inject fragments from other writing into ones sentences, so that the
reader is suddenly reading someone else, and then you again. Technically, this is done by
changing font style and size. Sometimes there is another voice within the appropriated
voice. In its original conception, this process continues inwards until the words
are no longer visible.
"Although I didnt use
it until electronic hypertext became available, I discovered invaginational
theory while writing the notes for Thomas Mertons Woods,
Shore, Desert. (Museum of New Mexico Press, 1983), in which
Merton quotes from someone an ends the sentence either with his
own words or from a different source, without any indication as
to what he had done. Whether he did this on purpose, I have no way
of knowing." J. Weishaus. "Interview with Joel Weishaus."
