Abstract

Kivland was an invited contributor to the first issue of LUNE 00: DISORDER 'The first set of letters in this series was written for Emily Beber’s book The Bodies that Remain (New York: Punctum, forthcoming). I was distracted by Derrida’s envois in The Postcard, the sendings to an unnamed beloved (whom one may perfectly well name now as Sylviane Agacinski), which led me to an early seminar of Lacan, his teaching on the training programme of the Société Française de Psychanalyse, following Freud’s papers on technique. And now, I am led to his Seminar XX, Encore, on love, knowledge, and feminine sexuality. I have in my careful reading and re-writing removed all that psychoanalytic theory, while retaining Lacan’s words (and his alone––I have added nothing, I avow), as eleven love letters, envois addressed to me by my beloved JL, continuing the course of our love affair that has endured for over twenty years. And yet, well, and yet, all that remains, nonetheless, as my master breaks the silence.'
