Conspiracy as narrative

July 15, 2011

“How, then, can a conspiracy be narrated? How can its intrigue – whether as a past event or as a future scheme – be charted in a coherent sequence of intentions, acts, and events?” (p3)

“The conspiracy is the inversion, the sublimation of everyday life.  …Its apparent coherence is an effect of narrative arrangement: a sequence in time, an agent, a goal.” (p3)
