“One does not look through writing onto reality – as through a clean or dirty window-pane. Words are never transparent. They create their own space, the space of experience, not that of existence… Clarity, in my view, is the gift of the way space, created by words in a given text, is arranged. The task of arranging this space is not unlike that of furnishing and arranging a home. The aim is similar: to accommodate with ease what belongs there and to welcome those who enter. There are hospitable and inhospitable writings. Hospitality and clarity go together.” (J. Berger 1992: 241-242)
