I hope to tie together my posts about a terrible grotesque and hermetic language.

It might not be obvious, but I think that sublimity, especially its effacing moment, can be brought about via narrative that lacks a new subjectivity to identify with, as that will instead restore the world as it already was without the reader, then producing catharsis insofar as – reading – we fear the loss of the world.

The goal is anti-habitual, should suggest new practices, processes and ways of responding even as the world reappears unchanged.
