Things to Do With Your Mouth

Availability: Ready to download

In Things to Do With Your Mouth, Divya Victor repeats, recants, and relentlessly echoes a textual meeting place for the psychic and corporeal implications of this "fear of women with excessive powers of speech and discourse," creating a cacophonous movement towards the feminist purpose of poetics. Culling language from texts as diverse as nursery rhymes and contemporary pe In Things to Do With Your Mouth, Divya Victor repeats, recants, and relentlessly echoes a textual meeting place for the psychic and corporeal implications of this "fear of women with excessive powers of speech and discourse," creating a cacophonous movement towards the feminist purpose of poetics. Culling language from texts as diverse as nursery rhymes and contemporary pediatric health websites, the biblical Song of Solomon and Freud's "Analysis of a Case of Hysteria," Victor confronts this long history of the "silenced mouth." Section by section, appropriated word by appropriated word, Victor relishes in the buccal opening, its capacity for words and discourse, addressing Nietzsche's claim that the world "lives on itself: its excrements are its nourishment." These words will "eat you alive, digest you, leave you scattered." Or, as CA Conrad states in his afterword, these reutterances will ultimately "liberate" us "one cough at a time. The mouth in, the mouth out, mouths training mouths around the always-imperfect O."

    So so so so so so so good. At first I was little intimidated by the bludgeoning but then it went stinging and rashy and tingly and then slapped back with a dishrag and wound around like a tourniquet that had a buncha names writ with magic marker that extended past the cast and up the thigh to you know where it feels like an odd mixture of absence & presence, Place and Thyme. It's with that sense I ended up ordering another copy for a friend and still feel super good about the Saturday I ovulated So so so so so so so good.
