Abstract
With specific reference to the David Foster Wallace archive at the Harry Ransom Center, my essay illustrates how the manuscripts and drafts reassembled as The Pale King can be used to address some of the loose ends that remain in this unfinished novel. Genetic criticism thus provides a number of hints of the directions in which Wallace may have been taking the book, and I will demonstrate that point both with regard to content and form. In a first part, the essay shows how the novel's representation of information overload corresponds with some of Wallace's reading material. I then go on to consider the issues of authorship in the book from the perspective of narrative theory.
