Abstract (English)

" 'You have to trust the things you can't name,' Ann Hamilton contends, adding, in a related thought, 'you feel through your body, you take in the world through your skin.'1 Experience, for Hamilton, leads to knowledge, or, more precisely, to a form of knowledge which is of far greater value and significance than mere codified information. Such knowledge comes as much through the body and the senses as through the mind. Consequently, she views verbal language as a deeply limited or flawed vehicle for communication since, with the exception of certain forms of poetry, it remains at best an abstraction, at odds with the immediate affectivity of sensate, visceral experience." -- Publisher's website.
