Description

The five stories contained in the thesis show the changes that take place in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the narrator of the stories, Lucius. The first story, "Getting Ready," depicts a society that builds absurd monuments to itself. The other stories, "Dog Days," "The Narwhal in the Arkansas," "Mayflies," and "The Razing of the Brown & Duncan Building," show the society's deepening commitment to the absurd. Insane actions are condoned by the society as long as they do not threaten the society's equilibrium; acts of madness that conform to the society's norms are tolerated. Finally, the society becomes so immersed in its own absurdity that the pointless destruction of monuments to the society begins. Through this world of random slaughter wanders Lucius, the survivor. He survives by remaining detached, autonomous, and static.
