The wish cage

I pose a question: admitting the validity of Lacan’s belief that man is “immersed” from the moment of his birth in language (a thesis I agree with wholeheartedly), how much is it possible to desire that which is linguistically indescribable insofar as, by its nature, it transcends the “containment” imposed by the structure of natural […]

Montale’s squaring word

A formless soul, devoid of regularity, incapable of adapting to the rigid boundaries that quadrature imposes is what Eugenio Montale (1896 – 1981), in the incipit of his celebrated collection “Cuttlefish Bones” (many poems are contained in “The Collected Poems of Eugenio Montale“), considers as its most intimate and unalterable essence. Don’t ask us the […]
