Speak, Hands

About this ebook

Speak, Hands is a meditation on memory and the unconscious which employs innovative narrative techniques to transport us into the wordless realms of meditation and gesture.

This daring new literary work defies the conventions of memoir by questioning the very nature of memory and the traditional autonomous subject. Lillian Moats negotiates this complex narrative using four inner voices which challenge the distinctions between mind and body, subject and object, consciousness and the unconscious.  Speak, Hands breaks through verbal bounds to transport us into the wordless realms of meditation and gesture.  Combining prose, poetry, psychology, and philosophy, Moats conveys an extraordinary personal struggle that could not have been told with common literary devices.
