SHORT TALK ON THE TOTAL COLLECTION
From childhood he dreamed of being able to keep with him all the objects in the world lined up on his shelves and bookcases. He denied lack, oblivion or even a likelihood of missing a piece. Order streamed from Noah in blue triangles and as the pure fury of his classifications rose around him, engulfing his life they came to be called waves by others, who drowned, a world of them.
Anne Carson , Short Talks, 1992
