A Free Associating Stream of Consciousness Type Experiment Down a Georgia Creek in Describing Dickey's Deliverance
Before O Brother Where Art Thou there was Deliverance.
It's Dante's Inferno meets Hee Haw!
Virgil, armed with bow and arrow meets gap-toothed vigilantes with guns.
It's The Odyssey in canoes floating downstream through Georgia wilderness.
|First printing, 1970|
You boys best leave your contact information here with us. Something's awful fishy, but I'll be damned if I can put my finger right on it. You sure you boys are levelling with me? You got something more you might like to add to what you saw what you heard all those days out there on the creek in the brush? You really didn't see those boys out there their old ladies say they ain't been home in days; their old ladies say they was heading down to the creek, they heard some gunshots, but you all three nodding at me like that didn't know hyde nor hair of them, is that it? They didn't bother you and you maybe didn't take the law into your own hands, something like that?
Here's the Dueling Banjos.
After Deliverance, you'll never oink like a pig the same way again.
