‘Literate

+++

What lover has he not outloved? What sage has he not outseen?

-EMERSON

from The Poet, or, Shakespeare

+++

…This pursued through volumes would perhaps take us no further than this, that with a great poet the sense of Beauty overcomes every other consideration, or rather obliterates all consideration…

-KEATS
from the letters

+++

“Obliterate the reader.”
“Obliterate yourself before the reader.”

-BLANCHOT 

from Literature and the Right to Death
