Summary:
"Love Speech is an auto-theoretical book that reads both like poetry and an epistle; a textile of literary mothers shot through with cultural-political feelings, threads of conversation, and moments from queer life. Love Speech takes it titles from an ethics of addressability that Judith Butler originally raises to examine what makes language such as hate speech hurtful. "Our very being exposes us to the address of another," she says (via Claudia Rankine's account in Citizen: An American Lyric.) Butler considers the inverse in several conversations, and Huang, too, is more devoted to theorizing and enacting love speech further."-- Provided by publisher.
