Recently, I read this quote, which is the opening sentence from the novel Neuromancer, by William Gibson:
The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.
Immediately, I was reminded of the opening lines of poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, by T.S. Eliot:
Let us go then, you and I
When the evening is spread against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table.
And in some parallels, Neuromancer was one of the first and among the most influential cyberpunk novels. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock was one of the first and among the most influential modernist poems.
