Message 1: Parentheticals

Date: Fri, 20 Oct 1995 14:26:08 Parentheticals
Subject: Parentheticals

I am posting this for a colleague here in our English Department,
please address replies to him (Benjamin Franklin, N270068UNIVSCVM.CSD.SC.EDU)

I've recently noticed that in her early novels Anais Nin frequently uses
parenthetical expressions. I her later novels, she uses few such
expressions. I would like somehow to analyze her use of parentheticals
but do not know how to begin. Is there a theory of parenthetical
expressions? Does the central issue concern how dramatically a parenthetical
interrupts a sentence? I'd like to be able to categorize her parentheticals
and say that one such indicates maturity, for example, or immaturity, or
something. Might you help me.
