         "Barbara offers us an experience before language-- of sensation and making and process. It involves finding an Other deep
          within ourselves and then coming up gasping for language... except that the search is not for just for any language but
          instead, for language that resists - language based on uniquely female experience. Instead of transcending the body, this
          language reclaims it. Instead of possessing the inquiry, she literally, materially embodies it and it embodies her - offering
          a sense of the struggle in naming and categorizing processes that are fluid."
