ANATOMÍA DE LA INTIMIDAD literatura y espejos rotos

I should like it to resemble some deep old desk, or capacious hold-all, in which one flings a mass of odds and ends without looking them through. (Virginia Woolf) We become ourselves through others, and the self is a porous thing, not a sealed container (Siri Hustvedt) En vez de mirarme en mi espejo quiero que mi espejo se mire en mí (Alejandra Pizarnik)

The importance of climatic effects and autobiographical experience in Katherine Mansfield’s creative process


I should like to write a life much in the style of Walter Pater’s “Child in the House”. About a girl in Wellington; the singular charm and barrenness of that place, with climatic effects- wind, rain, spring, night, the sea, the cloud pageantry. And then to leave the place and go to Europe, to live there a dual existence- to go back and be utterly disillusioned, to find out the truth of all, to return to London, to live there an existence so full & so strange that Life itself seemed to greet her, and, ill to the point of death, return to W. & die there. A story, no, it would be a sketh, hardly that, more psychological study of the most erudite character. I should fill it with climatic disturbance, & also of the strange longing for the artificial. I should call it “Strife”, & the child I should call- Ah, I have it- I’d make her a half caste Maori & call her Maata. Bring into it Warbrick in the guide.
