I reads me some Chuang Tzu to get by.

The style might seem fragmented, but it's not--it swerves powerfully and purposefully. There's a definite poetic logic at work in how shorter, unrelated (and sometimes inane) seeming anecdotes are juxtaposed. That's to say, in order to reveal the radically simple, Chuang Tzu utilizes wonderfully complex/diverse strategies.
