Expressed as many short interchangeable texts, A Looking of Another is a long-form work of ekphrasis that uses two portraits of the same woman as a means to explore the ways in which a person is iterated in memory. In turns fictive and essayistic, this is work is ultimately a contemplation of a mother’s death that recognizes that if the pain of grief cannot be expressed in words, then perhaps the answers to death’s questions might be found in the world representation and forms.
