"By choosing the most direct or spontaneous form of voicing and documenting, I find myself closer to fiction"
if history and memory form the sense of an identity, does language and expression limit it? ultimately, there seems to be no other recourse but poetry (in all of its forms) to communicate an understanding of the self. merely an understanding of the self.
another quote i really liked: "Witnesses go on living, to bear witness to the unbearable"
a densely packed exploration of womanhood in the context of war and its aftermath, but also in the context of cultural identity - i can't recommend it enough
