PARERGA: Notes in the Margins.
the parergon is developed as adornment, embellishment, ornamentation (Zierathen) of the main ergon,(work).
" the parergon participates in the act of reflective thought, of reflective faith, through  seemingly endless segmentation of the commentary "
" parerga denote a supplemental and instructional gesture that accompanies a main text or narrative, but does so in a resolutely critical manner."
[from Latin, from Greek, from para-1 + ergon work]
SIDE WORK, SIDE JOB :Ornamental Digression
Parerga are not simply notes; they should be thought of as the extremities of a body,
without which the [main] text is truncated.
Parerga are notations to the text which make the text show its complexities; they bring into the main narrative the realities of multiple positions, make interventions that show there is no [apparent stasis] stability in history, that the story itself constantly shifts [is not pinned down nor nailed], that any attempt to produce a cohesive narration, an Ur-text of the history will draw voices from the margins .
Parerga are not commentaries.
They do not interrogate a stable main text or invite further commentary.
[They are their own story.]Rather,
They are,  a Derrida - “lean on,” [ that is a space ] where [there is ] the chance to hold onto something: an idea, an explanation, a question, an interrogation, a dissent.
[So ironically they do represent stability - but not the orthodox [main] vein of stability.]
They are metatext [which] seeks to unseat  certainties which might exist in the main text, [ to unseat] any convictions that might have developed in the narrative .
"Parerga" offer a means to engage with the main text's “imponderabilia of actual life”;
