In researching this essay I, of course, read every other commentator I could find. There were many references to beautiful language and effective storytelling, but not one hint of understanding of all the hints Stevens gives to metaficitional levels of meaning. Consider the scroll so prominently featured on the very cover of The Canterbury Tales in Neverland and the phrase “literary survival” in the subtitle. Reading this in paperback you will naturally find pages of text and not a scroll but like a scroll the pages are not numbered. But wait, they are, within the text itself in a joking comment on the survival of a continuous text a la scroll arbitrarily divided into pages by the need of the new technology of a bound book which achieves another level of literary survival humor when transposed to a Kindle which thrusts the pagination back before the reader by its own technological fiat. And yet the story survives and resonates now with new layers of meaning as so much of the story itself is about the survival of story literally, so to speak, after Kindles and paperbacks have all failed to survive the cultural apocalypse.
