Broyer as with Centuries or Meat
by Nathalie Stephens
p. 7 of 7

Communion is cannibalism.

Steiner’s century is closed to further inspection and our books are little else than capsules of complacency.

An upheld hand is a shield for the face an admonishment a plea at times and often threatening. Une menace.

The hand of Amichai is shattered bone and Darwish with him laps water from cups of stone.



Nathalie Stephens writes l'entre-genre in English and French. Touch to Affliction (2006), from which this is excerpted; Je Nathanaël (2003 / 2006); and the essay of correspondence, L'absence au lieu (Claude Cahun et le livre inouvert) (2007), are among her most recent books.
