Wallaceisms

From DFW
Jump to: navigation, search

A term adopted by this class to describe the writing style that is so unique to David Foster Wallace. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Footnotes, occasionally footnotes within footnotes within a parenthetical and so on
  • Abbreviations and acronyms
  • The use of a personal story that is only loosely related to the subject at hand.

These writing tools are what makes each DFW piece so clearly his own.
