The delusion of Diana and Actaeon kinds the matrix for this poem which tells of Eros and Language, and of dismemberment. It attempts to exasperate abstraction and shortage till the horizon turns and divulges photographs from youth, the child's physique. Love erupts into sacrifice; sentences holiday into feverish clusters of shifters. eventually, the I Ching, Maurice Sceve, and Marcel Proust are translated into sheer vertigo. the writer has acknowledged: "writing, as I know it, starts biographically, autobiographically. these moments whilst I first felt known as by way of the will to write...were continuously associated with whatever one calls mystical cases, while the boundaries of identification are lifted and there's a break."

[she] explodes the idea that of translation from that of word/object substitution... moving the act of translation in an anti-system during which the very proposal of signification is ceaselessly, and seriously, at stake...

"Risset's books of poetry are 'heterogeneous wholes,' and he or she unearths in clusters of strains and fragments of sentences 'cells' which, while 'freed from their average contexts...link themselves to different cells..., with none hierarchical system.' this is often equivalent to her inspiration of 'disidentity,' or the feel of transcending one's personal identity...as predicate to writing. The cells not just mimic overheard language--they enact our fragmented notion, our translation of the world."
