Example text

The whisky bears a grudge against the decanter.

However, there is a sense this also entails a realization of maternal otherness, since the mother’s unique personhood cannot be controlled, reduced through an omnipotent control. A sense of smallness haunts the nascent self, one evinced in ‘grudging’ anger at the mother’s ‘immortality’, the containing ‘decanter’ whose mind must hold her growing child, allowing a gentle integration into the world.
