Finding Places

“A tough life needs a tough language — and that is what poetry is. That is what literature offers — a language powerful enough to say how it is. It isn’t a hiding place. It is a finding place.”

— Jeanette Winterson, from Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?

“I am interested in language because it wounds or seduces me.”

— Roland Barthes.
