    I was wondering today whether in Culla’s dream in the opening pages of Outer Dark if McCarthy might be making an allusion to the Madman announcing that God is dead in Nietzsche’s The Gay Science. The bit in GS about the world becoming unchained from the sun was one piece of evidence for a possible connection that made me think so, but there are, perhaps, some other pieces of textual evidence pointing in that direction, which I hope to write about here in the next day or two.
