Questions about Dhalgren (2)
- Hallo, here I am again with another problem.
When Kidd and madame Brown leave the Richards' house (apart from the term
*disfocus* which I didn't find in any dictionary, but presume stands for
*out of focus*) the boy makes a sort of reflection and says to himself:
"Does the revelation that, though it cannot be done with words, it might be
accomplished in some lingual gap, giving [i.e. give] me right, i injury,
walking with a woman and her dog, to pain?". But all the paragraph from the
beginning (And what have I invested...) to the ending (This exhaustion
melts what binds, releases what flows) is rather complicated.
Could you help me to understand the exact sense of the phrase?
