I am hesitant to post about this book (which I finished on Saturday) because I feel incredibly nervous that I won't be able to clearly express how much it means to me, but that is how it goes with art that is honest. There are books like these that find you, that slip into your heart and make you that much more open, books that make you trust yourself - or as @brielarson texted me about it today, whom I lent it to right after, "It feels like infinity" 😳❤️ read this book and share it with your sisters--- I want part of our resistance to be sharing necessary, infinite art with each other (hence why I post so much art on here 👻) 👋 #SisterhoodOfTheTravelingBook ❤️💕💐🤗❤️ #TheArgonauts #MaggieNelson ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

"At the same time, every word that I write could be read as some kind of defense, or assertion of value, of whatever it is that I am, whatever viewpoint it is that I ostensibly have to offer, whatever I've lived. You know so much about people from the second they open their mouths. Right away you might know that you might want to keep them out. That's part of the horror of speaking, of writing. There is no where to hide. When you try to hide the spectacle can grow grotesque." - Maggie Nelson, The Argonauts

Exactly how I feel sometimes...💭🌹

Today, on what is apparently the bluest day of the year, we're celebrating the brilliantly blue cover for Bluets by Maggie Nelson, designed by @suzanneldean. We're very excited to be publishing Bluets for the first time in the UK this June, and will have early copies in this week #BlueMonday #Bluets #MaggieNelson #TheArgonauts @vintagebooksdesign

Why did i not get this sooner? One of those books you can try to put down but impossible...read it in one breath... #maggienelson #theargonauts

Happy Friday, I saw a #Bluets in the wild and told this unsuspecting gentleman that if he's liking it, he should read #TheArgonauts next! He promises me he'll buy it when he gets home. Hide your wife hide your kids, I talk to strangers about books on the subway 💙💙😬🕵🏼‍♀️ @graywolfpress @wavepoetry

ist das gut genug, stark genug? #maggienelson #theargonauts #newissue

Growing in unexpected spurts, pains and all, to find solace in that which can not be bound, labeled, or certain - Appreciating the continuous flight, free of destination, with its soaring highs and breathtaking dives, that is this act of becoming. #paradigmshift #selfcare #theargonauts #maggienelson

"So grateful for a space like the @literaryswagbookclub where we can have vulnerable conversations about language. The power behind words. Who is speaking. What is being asked or discussed. Queerness and the way Maggie talks about her story and love in The Argonauts was refreshing. She challenges a lot of the assumptions in place because of the heteronormative world we live and I appreciated that. This quote stuck with me especially after our conversation tonight: "People seem hungry, above all else, for permission, and a guarantee against bad consequences." The belief that we can say what we want without retaliation is only thought by those with power and those who don't recognize their privilege in this world we live in. There are nuances to every conversation and thought and putting in the work with ourselves and then with our peers is so important. Words are powerful, y'all." ♻️: @bettyreads 🔥📚😎❤️ #literaryswag #literaryswagbookclub #theargonauts #maggienelson

Essäistik i långformat (iaf 130 s) med visst tuggmotstånd, om identitet, föräldraskap, kön och liv, flätad av teori, minnen och nu. Av tankar och kropp. Av det egna och det universellt mänskliga. De filosofiska nedslagen är rapsodiska och korthuggna, stilen gör ibland att de känns mer som alibi än ämne. Samtidigt blir berättelsen, livet, inte riktigt levande för mig, utom glimtvis, och mot slutet. Materialet ligger ofta platt - varken hackat eller malet, eller kanske både och - men när det lyfter flyger det högt. #maggienelson #theargonauts #feminism #genderstudies #essäistik #läsning inte bara #sommarläsning #juli17 @urlitterat

Tonight I nearly completed my home Maggie Nelson library. I picked up my first Nelson book, the Argonauts, in 2015, on a whim. Little did I know how I'd come to rely on her writing to get me through some tough times.

Just finished Maggie Nelson's Argonauts. It's about gender and identity, written in quite a complex academic language that I found off putting (phrases like 'the rebus of sodomitical maternity' or the 'ontological either/or' made me want to throw it across the room although I realise it's a bit unfair to take them out of context). For the first third of the book I was genuinely unsure if I was reading about a man or a woman - which I quite liked. Towards the end she writes about the experience of giving birth and juxtaposes this with her partner's words on the death of his mother, and I did feel quite emotionally connected with it. The jury's still slightly out with me but I think on balance I found this a fascinating and challenging read that seems to have some important things to say on how we define ourselves and the things that define us. Maybe a good book club book; it definitely feels like something you want to discuss with people after reading it. K. #theargonauts #maggienelson

Just when you didn't think you could love her anymore

Finished it in less than 24 hours, cried my eyes out, reaffirmed my belief in life and love and the human condition. 13/10 would break my own heart again

Exactly how I feel sometimes...💭🌹

Off to Paris for a few days. Am I being over ambitious with my holiday reading? I don't tend to read short stories but I keep hearing good things about Attrib by Eley Williams; I love David Grossman's writing and have been meaning to read A Horse Walks Into A Bar for a while; I've never read any Patrick Modiano so going to try Villa Triste; and I read a couple of pages of The Argonauts in the bookshop and was so intrigued I ended up adding it to the pile.

"My writing is riddled with such tics of uncertainty. I have no excuse or solution, save to allow myself the tremblings, then go back in later and slash them out. In this way I edit myself into a boldness that is neither native nor foreign to me." - Maggie Nelson, The Argonauts
