Tales of Hate and "Differance": A Narrative Analysis of Gayman's "The Book of Adam."
Stroud, Scott R.
This paper examines the Christian Identity artifact, "The Book of Adam," by Dan Gayman. Using narrative criticism, this artifact is shown to construct the white race as "progressing through time, as occupying sacred spatial locations, as essentially chosen by God, and as separate from other races." This narrative blurs the distinction between the Biblical myth and the lives of audience members. Attention is drawn to the dangerous ambiguity of Gayman's language; this derivative of original "differance" could be effective in reaching non-fundamentalist audiences with this text. Contains 38 references. (Author/RS)
