Xanadu's Logo

Instead of biographical information quasinymical information is offered, because Xanadu isn't a biological person, but a contextual pseudonym, in fact_using a neologism_a quasinym.

Xanadu has been born in the virtual literary space Hypoliet out of a 1990 motto of Salman Rushdie

Z embla, Zenda, Xanadu:
A ll our dream-worlds may come true.
F airy lands are fearsome too.
A s I wander far from view
R ead, and bring me home to you.

Xanadu is the respiritualization of ST Coleridge's Chinese locality in 1798 Kubla Khan

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man

Xanadu connotes literary imagination. It denotes (according to Webster's 10th) `an idyllic, exotic, or luxurious place.'

Xanadu as a quasinym embraces, for example, author-figures. Three of its qualities.
1 Xanadu _ produces prose poems.
2 Xanadu hasn't just one family name, and may choose and inflect its past, present and future, like the tenses, per public and publication (Modern Condition).
2a In accordance with the First Principle of Radical Publication Pragmatics (PRPP1) a quasinym is concatenated to name, place and time of publication, performance or mailing, like this

Xanadu Family Name for Name of Publication (Month Year of Publication)

2b In accordance with the Second Principle of Radical Public Pragmatics (PRPP2) a quasinym is related to its public or audience as it does to its independent publishing house Double You Double You Press in case of some humanities' activities as humanity corrodes to You-man-I-ty and You-mean-idea, like this

(Your Poet from Double You Double You Press)

3 In accordance with the Third Principle of Radical Parallelism Pragmatics (PRPP3) a quasinym is supplemented by parenthetical acknowledgments, dedications, loci paralleli, sources of inspiration_from allusions and borrowings to quotes and tributes, from resemblances to correspondences_unless they are already mentioned in the body of the prose poem (Postmodern Condition), like this

(Thanks to Names Artists, References Texts _ )

In religious parallelisms reference changes into reverence, like this

(Thanks to John 1, 1 _ )

Further qualities of quasinyms may be outlined in forthcoming aesthetics and supernaturalisms, but explanations are transcended in prose poems' exemplifications. Xanadu lives in Art, Public's Home 0, Space of Infinite Imagination Iv. It is momentarily in love with some aesthetic and linguistic principles. Its occupation consists in exhibitions (in galleries, museums, et cetera), performances (in art and literary events, et cetera) and publications (in art and literary anthologies, magazines, et cetera).
