Why?: Followed by Swimming
Presses universitaires de Rouen et du Havre, 5 mars 2020 - 108 pages
Why? consists of an extended series of questions about the nature of things, and particularly about the singular thing that is a rose. It begins with and revolves around Angelius Silesius’s famous line, ‘‘The rose is without why, it blooms simply because it blooms.’’ Why? makes a reverse proposition, questioning the thing so that it will bloom.
