  • Epigraph: We require an education in literature as in the sentiments in order to discover that what we assumed with the complicity of our teachers was nature is in fact culture, that what was given is in no more than a way of taking. And we must learn, when we take, the cost of our participation, or else we shall pay much more. We shall pay our capacity to read at all. -

    [The] very being of writing (the meaning of the labour that constitutes it) is to keep the question Who is speaking? from ever being answered.

    - Richard Howard,Preface to Roland Bathes' S/Z
