The Doris: Grk.: Doron, Gift. Marcel Mauss’ The Gift. Fr.: d’or, Gold. The, in Grk., article before a proper noun might mean the (aforementioned) Doris; designate fame or infamy the Doris (famously).

Being that of Prometheus, fire, and the removal of our foreknowledge of fate. These are the same gift. That posits us on the yearning side of a concept or totality, that is: not a top–down kind of fate, the watery kind, followed listlessly; but the side of fire, of meaning to serve no external end. The “sun of the center” or, that for which there is no name.

The Doris is concerned with nothing but its content, which includes translation, fiction, non–fiction and reviews.
