literature and the loss of the “I”

Literature is the giving up of the “I”, the becoming-deprived of a “self”, through the separation, from “oneself” and every “self”, which “one” undergoes as soon as “one” enters into the strange space of literature; a space-less space and a distance from the “self”, its time, and language, experiencing a different time, the time of difference, the never-present which never comes but slips away, by letting the words speak, saying nothing but their own hollowing out, absence, and the impossibility of saying, when language hides itself in the crack, which is its “origin”, toward which disappearance is drawn.
