Dear Nancy,
    You must be speaking in terms of subject or illustration.  Who can 
know the dares another might take in his writing? --those moments that 
are of personal daring.  In any work that stand out from the mass of 
works, it is likely that many such moments are in fact present.  They 
may be grammatical or typographical; they needn't be biographical, for 
instance, to be daring to the dare-er.
