From "Don't Start Me Talking"

[…] when I talk about ‘understanding’, I mean an understanding that remains ‘open’ rather than a comprehension that seeks resolution, closure. I’d also want to say that writing can definitely exhaust or surpass interpretation and understanding – not just any single act of interpretation, but as a whole. However, my approach to this is by way of negative theology (especially Dionysius the Areopagite) rather than any materialist textual theory.
