, March 2017. Moira Barrett on „Ink in Milk“

The final scene of Ink in Milk sees the narrator mountain climbing. Forgetting that he is attached to the rock with a security hook, the narrator slips and falls into nothingness, briefly anticipating death. He thinks of crystals and Freud’s ideas of the psyche as a space similar to the churches of Rome. The story ends on a resigned but uncontrollably curious note with an imagined glimpse of what a life not dominated by language might look like and what it might feel like “if the subject could speak its own language.”
