  • I just skimmed a bit of a piece in which someone talked about reading Barbara Johnson and feeling like it was incomprehensible and difficult to grasp but then returning to it later and being delighted about how clear and intelligent the work was. I don't think I had that experience exactly with the Judith Butler today, but this second time (read her in my first MALS class, re-reading in my last) I feel like somehow she's writing in a language which I've had a lot more exercise with. I can live with it a lot more easily. It's less of a puzzle. And I'm enjoying it immensely.
