Here's what we might call a precursoral opposite. In The Shining
(1980), countless variations of the phrase "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" cover hundreds of typewritten pages, revealing that Jack Torrance is disturbed. In a 1908 issue of The Windsor Magazine
, the blankness
of a page reveals that someone is disturbed.
The caption reads, "'You have been disturbed!' she cried sorrowfully, as she took in the blankness of the page."
