Thoughts on Writing: Nicole Brossard

I write to make a statement of presence in language. In order for the alive to win out.

Writing can be done only in a body to body encounter with language, no doubt in involves listening as well, the emotion of making oneself available to one’s inner voice.

I have always made writing a place of pleasure, a quest, a place of dangerous intensity, a space of turbulence having its own dynamic.

My existence is a walking in writing; I don’t take my eyes of the horizon.

Quotes are from “Fragments of a Conversation with Nicole Brossard” in the recently published collection of Essays on Brossard, which I highly, highly recommend. This is a great series by Guernica. Well done.
