Annotation Side One - The First Severian - Interview with Michael Andre-Driussi

March 1st, 2020

No specific chapter

This is Side One of our discussion with Mantis about his theory regarding Severian's description of the First Severian in the final chapter of Citadel of the Autarch. 

Because Severian's reveal as Mantis's frames it has the potential to affect every chapter of "The Book of the New Sun" there's no really good chapter in which to bring it up. So we placed it here upon Severian's exile, just before Severian is thrust into the wider world.
