Breve ensayo sobre la carta
«I read that when someone dies it is usual to return letters that were in the deceased’s possession to their senders. For respect, it seems. And, also, that after the death of both parties the whole of their correspondence is burned.
I wonder how it is possible that these dialogues can achieve in their conclusion what they did not achieve in their course: the encounter of the interspersed voice. Perhaps the letter consists in making distance the condition for the most intimate closeness: to tell you something that, otherwise, I would not dare to tell you. To ask you something that otherwise I would not dare to ask you. After all, there are things that can only be said by letter.
Will we burn?»
