In this text, William Gass meditates on the inherent poetics and possibilities of 'blue:' the blue we see, the blue we feel; essentially blueness in all its manifestations. The seemingly simple subject here is a generative topic for our consideration, as Gass presents it's property as a multitude––he takes up its meanings in the realm of the psychological to the visual to the function of 'blue' as the word itself. It is here where the 'blue' on the page becomes, for Gass, an opening into the texture and theory of language itself.
