Frankenstein citations

In the spirit of A.L. Snijder’s trick the Dutch poet Maarten van der Graaff operates in his collection “Nederland in Stukken.” The poems are collages of phrases or language fragments that he selected from a collection of official pieces, acquired from the estate of a failing bookstore. He chose the fragments himself and stuck them together at his own discretion to create a new, ‘living’ literary work. I use the same technique here and there to create a sort of summary and tag them with “Frankenstein”.
