Authorship in Infinite Jest
The narration of Infinite Jest is varied, as the first scene and the last hundred (approx.) pages in a first person narration from Hal Incandenza, and the meat of the novel in a third person omniscient voice. The variation encourages argument over who exactly is supplying the story, and just how connected Hal is to that omniscient voice and to other characters, like Don Gately. James Incandenza is also concerned with authorship, especially of his project, Infinite Jest (film).
