Notes

Summary:
The short essay in Holes is about the artist’s younger brother’s relationship with digging holes in the yard when he was a child. Carson’s holes, like many youthful games, start out as innocent experiments but end up being repurposed in ways he never could’ve anticipated, and they give insight to what kind of man he will become. Visually, the way the text, wax, and ink move down the page, accumulating weight from behind as the story progresses, mirrors both the act of digging a hole and the gathering of experience that can occur in our own backyards.
