Two Lines 25

Fall 2016

Unobservable obscenizable. Desire alone knows how to contemplate, desire of lover desire of artist the desire of the engorger, desire of elsewhere.


—from “Nude Enumerated” by Jean-Luc Nancy, translated from the French by Charlotte Mandell

Strip everything away and writing is really just about creating a record—trying to make something permanent out of all this impermanence. As I read the stories and poems in this issue of Two Lines again, I kept coming across characters or speakers who were fighting, as the title of Bradley Schmidt’s translation of Ulrike Almut Sandig’s story succinctly puts it, “Against Disappearance.” —CJ EVANS
