Abstract

This paper demonstrates deep and coherent relationships between Henry James's The Wings of the Dove and Sigmund Freud's Dora, The Hebrew Bible, and Hamlet. In the process, it suggests fundamental analogies between writing, weaving, and the communication of neurons in the brain. These observations were first recorded in a series of over forty graphite drawings called Secrets I made in 2000 and 2001. Just as James's prefaces are a "reperusal" of his novels, this paper is a reperusal, a rereading of these drawings. From the beginning, I saw these drawings as pictures of thinking.
