Fiction And Fission: Twentieth — Century Writing on The Founding Fathers

Michael Zuckerman


In Australia, tribesmen trace their origins to a rain-making
python who drowned a set of incestuous sisters because they
polluted his watering place with their menstrual blood) In
Tibet, families derive their descent from a beautiful boy in a
conch .egg which came from the immense ovum exuded from the essence of the five primordial elements. 2 In Polynesia,
islanders tell tales of the emergence of their clan forebears
from holes in the ground.' And in every other quarter of the
globe, other people proclaim other origin myths which are beyond reasoning but not without reasons.
