I attempt to demonstrate deep and coherent relationships between Henry James' "The Wings of the Dove," the Hebrew Bible, "Hamlet, and Sigmund Freud's "Dora." In the process, I will suggest fundamental analogies among writing, weaving and the communication of neurons in the brain.
I first recorded these observations in 2000 and 2001 in a series of over forty graphite drawings called "Secrets." Most of the drawings are about 10x13 inches; a few are 8x10 inches. They are composed of handwritten quotes from "The Wings of the Dove" interspersed with text from the Hebrew Bible, "Hamlet," "Dora," various other texts, and my own comments. I will read two of these drawings.
