If my desire is possible, it means the system is already letting something else through.

A “Wouldn’t the worst thing be–isn’t the worst thing that, really, woman is not castrated, that all on has to do is not listen to the sirens because the sirens were men for history to change its sense, its direction? All the poets know that: There have to be ways o relating that are completely different from the tradition ordained by the masculine economy. So urgently, and anxiously, I look for a scene in which a type of exchange would be produced that would be different, a kind of desire that wouldn’t be in collusion with the old story of death.

This desire would invent Love, it alone would not use the word love to cover up its opposite: On the contrary, there would have to be a recognition of each other, and this grateful acknowledgment would come about thanks to the intense and passionate work of knowing. Finally, each would take the risk of other, of difference, without feeling threatened by the existence of an otherness, rather, delighting to increase through the unknown that is there to discover, to respect, to favor, to cherish.

I’ve bought it when I was still in high-school, during my un qoman enthusiasm with feminist theory.

I might even call it “a craze”. But it lied there, waiting, ’cause I had other books to read, and high-school stuff and all. To cut a long story short, I got to it now. And sure as hell, I’m glad I’ve waited with it.

I think that it deserves the patience I couldn’t give it back then, and that it also requires a far greater theoretical understanding than I had then.

And yet, I’m glad that I’ve read it. It was the cherry at the top of my day, only filling long drives and midnight readings.

It’s hard to understand at moments but that is the whole point she is trying to make. Jun 12, Leah added it Shelves: Jan 12, Kit rated it it was amazing Shelves: A fascinating mix of memoir, psychoanalytic theory, and political statement. The first section might come off as being relatively esoteric and of narrow interest, though its implicit value grows tge apparent as one reads the other sections.
