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 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

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

Rainy Sunday spent with Maggie Nelson and pastry. It's white chocolate and raspberry. The pastry, not Maggie Nelson.

Ep.2- The Argonauts: Queerness, Pregnancy, and Words That Fly. Now ready for all Maggie Nelson fans... Can you tell we love her? 💙🌊💙listen at textual-feelings.tumblr.com #podcast #queertheory #feminism #TheArgonauts

THE ARGONAUTS by Maggie Nelson was a quick, but heavy read. I have honestly never read something like this before and it's one of the most interesting and experimental works of nonfiction I've read in awhile. This genre-blending memoir combines poetry, prose, stream of consciousness meditations, academic nonfiction, and eventually becomes a collaboration between her and her partner Harry (formerly Harriet) whom she has a child with. The journey through falling in love with Harry, conception, motherhood, and dealing with loss was so moving and brought out ALL the emotions. Don't let the academic part scare you away though. Nelson's brand of academia is very accessible, and I love that 70% of the authors she cites (very creatively in the book design) are Columbia University Press authors and titles. One of the main theses is built around her mentor Eve Kosofksy Sedgewick's BETWEEN MEN, a book I worked on the 30th anniversary edition of a few years ago. I highly recommend this, especially to my female friends because of her philosophic exploration of the female body. Shoutout to @graywolfpress for always publishing groundbreaking work.

ive been meaning to read this since it came out. nelson is able to write so personally yet in a way that doesn't feel like reading someone's diary. this book does an incredible job of talking about queerness in all of its complexities and uncertainty .

"Whatever- why can't you just write something that will bear adequate witness to me, to us, to our happiness?" #wednesdaywords by Maggie Nelson's THE ARGONAUTS

3 Leituras indicadas por Emma Watson:
#Persépolis Completo, da #MarjaneSatrapi

A edição conta com as quatro partes da história em quadrinhos que fala sobre a autora iraniana. Quando criança, ela assistiu ao começo da revolução que colocou o Irã nas mãos dos xiitas e isso contrasta muito com sua vida privada, em meio a uma família moderna. Lendo, é possível acompanhar a questão política radical no país, o afastamento de Marjane da família indo estudar em outro lugar, a volta conturbada ao Irã e a escolha de deixá-lo, tudo isso conforme ela cresce. Vale a pena conhecer essa transição de vida diferente do que estamos acostumado a ver.

#TheArgonauts, da #MaggieNelson

A autora é mãe por inseminação artificial, madrasta, mulher de um homem transgênero chamado Harry Dodge e professora universitária, e no livro ela conta seu dia a dia com todos esses detalhes, trazendo vários questionamentos sobre a #sociedade. O mundo não é simples e não existem apenas dois extremos: têm muitas possibilidades entre eles, não apenas nas questões de gênero, mas em tudo o que uma pessoa sente e escolhe ser – e é muito legal entender isso durante a leitura.

How to Be a #Woman, da #CaitlinMoran

Ao mesmo tempo que traz #memórias autobiográficas, o livro também tem um ar de artigo de opinião da autora. Hoje as mulheres já podem votar, tomar pílula anticoncepcional e deixaram de ser queimadas como bruxas, mas ainda há muito a avançar. Às vezes, no dia a dia, surgem #questionamentos sobre ser mulher, desde questões simples como os sutiãs machucando, até momentos mais marcantes da vida como a #maternidade. Caitlin vai discorrendo sobre isso, inclusive por meio de histórias que vivenciou, enquanto conversa com os leitores sobre #feminismo.

" "You've punctured my solitude", I told you. It had been a useful solitude, constructed, as it was, around a recent sobriety, long walks to and from the Y through the sordid, bouganvillea-strewn back streets of Hollywood, evening drives up and down Mulholland to kill the long nights, and, of course, maniacal bouts of writing, learning to address no one. But the time for its puncturing had come. "I feel I can give you everything without giving myself away" I whispered in your basement bed. If one does one's solitude right, this is the prize.

🔥"Empirically speaking, we are made up of star stuff. Why aren't we talking more about that." - #maggienelson #theargonauts #artsxdesign 🔥

We're editing today, and thinking about Eve Sedgwick as we sit in the sun. Episode #2 'The Argonauts: Queerness, Pregnancy and Words That Fly' coming soon ✨☀️. #TheArgonauts #feminism #queertheory #podcast

'I sent you the passage from "Roland Barthes by Roland Barthes" in which Barthes describes how the subject who utters the phrase "I love you" is like "the Argonaut renewing his ship during its voyage without changing its name." Just as the Argo's parts may be replaced over time but the boat is still called the Argo, whenever the lover utters the phrase "I love you", its meaning must be renewed by each use, as "the very task of love and of language is to give to one and the same phrase inflections which will be forever new."' #lovethisbook #maggienelson #theargonauts #contemporarylit #literature #books #rolandbarthes #bookstagram

Enjoying a sunny Sunday morning in our little reading nook 🐈☕️📖 Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts was recommended to me by a very clever friend after I complained that nothing I've read in the past month or so has really grabbed me... and I've been totally absorbed from the first page. I don't think I've read anything like it before - it's a complicated, incredibly personal exploration of identity, gender, sexuality, feminism, motherhood, criticism... It's beautiful.
