Always our wars have been our confessions of weakness.

What is Reading? It’s Eating on the Sly

It’s also a clandestine, furtive act. We don’t acknowledge it. It confuses. Reading is not as insignificant as we claim. First we must steal the key to the library. Reading is a provocation, a rebellion: we open the book’s door, pretending it is a simple paperback cover, and in broad daylight escape! We are no longer there: this is what real reading is. If we haven’t left the room, if we haven’t gone over the wall, we’re not reading. …if we’re pretending before the eyes of the family, then we’re reading. We are eating. Reading is eating on the sly.

Reading is eating the forbidden fruit, making forbidden love, changing eras, changing families, changing destinies, and changing day for night. Reading is doing everything exactly as we want and “on the sly.”

Hélène Cixous, from Three Steps on the Ladder of Writing, translated by Sarah Cornell and Susan Sellers
