Wittgenstein, Analytic Philosophy and the Invisible Tower Trilogy

Although Wittgenstein is central to many themes and is "operative" as I approach the construction of narratives, I have hesitated writing about the place of analytic philosophy in the Invisible Tower Trilogy. I have been experiencing some difficulty in arriving at the language to describe these dynamics, but now here it is:

The trilogy presents forceful comparisons among philosophical and theological credulity, conceptual confusion, grammatical confusion, psychological dysfunction, institutional corruption, existential doubt, and the "nature" of narrative--especially in regard to suspension of disbelief and verisimilitude.  
For the nonce, that shall suffice.
