"Is the external voice literal and the internal one metaphorical?
[...] incorporeal bodies, languages deprived of sense, generic inﬁnities, unconditioned supplements. They become and they are suspended, like the poet’s conscience,‘between nothing and the pure event.’ [...] a rupture in the continuities of bodies and languages. Now the voice as the object, the paradoxical creature that we are after, is also a break. [...] And—most important in this context—it is precisely the voice that holds bodies and languages together. It is like their missing link,what they have in common."
