Breve ensayo sobre la carta

Laía Argüelles Folch


Out of stock

I read that when someone dies it is customary to return to their senders the letters that were in the deceased person’s possession. Out of respect, apparently. And, also, that after the death of both parties, all their correspondence is burned.

I wonder how it is possible that these dialogues can achieve in their conclusion what they did not achieve in their course: the encounter of the interspersed voice. Perhaps the letter consists in making distance the condition for the most intimate closeness: to tell you something that, otherwise, I would not dare to tell you. To ask you something that otherwise I would not dare to ask you. After all, there are things that can only be said by letter.

Shall we burn?
