on language and writing (notes)

“To evoke a sense of what cannot be said”

.

“As a writer, I continuously attempt to make inroads on the vast terrain of what cannot be said–or said by me, at least. I seem to know by intuition [what] I cannot find words for…That is to say, the unnamed is overwhelmingly present and real for me. And this is truer because the moment it stops being a standard for what I do say is the moment my language goes slack…I would almost say it is the moment in which my language becomes false.”

.

“We make language. A language is a grand collaboration, a collective art form”

This blog makes it seem like I have a major brain-crush on MR…which I guess I do.
