Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. A lyric meditation on affect, relationality, and environment, OF SPHERE conjures a self and world that both bloom and fall apart. Given this continually unfastening attempt to make a cosmos--to equip, adorn, dress, ornament--what is it to know, and love, and be? In constellation with the experimental prose of writers such as Helene Cixous, Clarice Lispector, and H.D., the book investigates ways a woman, aware she's always becoming gendered, might resist sealing into a character according to cultural norms. How to be wind through goldenrod. Clarity streaked with berry juice.
