The first couple of grafs of this essay entitled Necropolis from Lapham’s Quarterly remind me of the Necropolis imagery from the Prologue and definitely puts me in mind of the oft-quoted recanting episode with its “…a stone in the very void where all would read my name” on p. 414. The inscription on the Roman tomb quoted in the Lapham’s piece is really something.

Sut’s in high cotton. The Knoxville News Sentinel reported today that City Council approved $667,300 for the design and construction management of the Suttree Landing Park mentioned earlier in this thread. The Park will be a $5 million project slated to begin by the summer of 2014. Now that’s more like it!

Seems the hand in the sky decided to drop a cliff ledge on her while she was sleeping one night.

There are so many things in SUTTREE that are shadows of historical happenings (or that otherwise can be attributed to the recharacterization of events in Cormac McCarthy’s life), and perhaps this too. The new volume on SUTTREE has some revelations, such as the autobiographical origin in McCarthy’s story, “A Drowning Incident,” that is revealed by Cormac McCarthy’s younger brother. We didn’t see that coming. Perhaps there is much more to be found.
If you haven’t already, you should see YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT WATCHES: SUTTREE AND CORMAC MCCARTHY’S KNOXVILLE. Linda Woodson gives an interpretation of Wanda’s death in her essay (page 188).

It looks like the plans for Suttree Landing Park are moving forward. I attended a public meeting on the plans last evening where some of the details were presented. Jack Neely has a very good summary of these plans in Metro Pulse. They look great to me. Maybe by sometime next summer we will actually have a Park that we can enjoy.
