Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick 1950-2009

Spending a lot of time today thinking about Eve and remembering her.

Here's a little quote from an interview with Eve in the book Regarding Sedgwick, edited by Stephen Barber and David Clark:

"I'm always compelled by the places where a project of writing runs into things that I just can't say--whether because there aren't good words for them, or more interestingly because they're structured in some elusive way that just isn't going to stay still to be formulated. That's the unrationalizable place that seems worth being to me, often the only place that seems worth being."
