Well now. Sure says something about how far Galatea Resurrects has gone that it's also publishing, as of next issue, reviews of literary theories. Why not? Such amuses Moi the Editor -- and if there's one overriding editorial standard by which Moi abides, it's her amusement. So here's an excerpt from a forthcoming review of Literary Theory: A Guide for the Perplexed by Mary Klages:
in discussing Cixous’ theory of l’ecriture feminine she describes this as “milk, it’s a song, it’s something with rhythm and pulse, but no words, something connected with bodies and with bodies’ beats and movements, but not with representational language.”(103)

Milk, it's a song... Lovely language indeedy.

Speaking of Galatea Resurrects, I'll have to adjust the release of the next issue to accommodate South America, as it looks like I'll leave the continent next Tuesday and be away for about a month-and-a-half. Details to follow...
