CHAOS RIDDLE PROSE -
Derek Hunter writes in a style he calls Chaos Riddle Prose in order to penetrate, shake up, and distort not only language, narrative, and character development, but perceptions of reality as well. Storytelling is still the driving force behind the stories, but the way in which they're told not only gives the reader another way of enjoying a story but another way of looking at life.
Chaos Riddle Prose is indebted to writers of the past, such as Joyce, Rimbaud, Lautreamont, Burroughs, Baudelaire, Shakespeare, Plath, Mallarme, Beckett, Spare, Celine, Dante, Jarry, Strindberg, Pinter, Breton, Dostoevsky, Blake, Poe, Bataille, Wilmot, Goethe, Crowley, Wilson (RAW), and Kafka. After some exposure to Chaos Riddle Prose, some might say it has affinities to Breton's ideas for Surrealism or Burrough's and Gysin's Cut-Up technique. While definitely influenced by Surrealism, the Cut-Up technique, and other aesthetic schools of thought, Chaos Riddle Prose separates itself by it's systematic anti-system approach to language and storytelling.
Chaos Riddle Prose sees life itself as one big riddle, having within it an infinite number of individual and distinct riddles. Unlike the standard riddle, with a proposition/question leading to a concrete answer, Chaos Riddle Prose often expresses itself as an enigma, yet an enigma pointing to deeper truths. Other times, to avoid redundancy, and "predictable chaos" (which would then no longer be chaos), Chaos Riddle Prose presents the story in clear, easily understood language. The Demands of the Moment is Key.
