"Lost" Multicontributor Collection

One of the most remarkable television series in recent years has been ABC's "Lost." Beginning with an archetypal premise of castaways stranded on an island, the show has evolved into a complex network of obscure connections, esoteric mysteries, literary and pop cultural allusions, and baroque experiments in narrative temporality. The defining feature of the show is its atmosphere of radical suggestibility; the narrative and thematic strands of the story continually run away into hyper-interpretability in a way that invites not only the kind of internet speculation which has flourished around the show, but also the application of more theoretically informed critical examination.
