This style, of form fitting content, is meant to be "drunk in" and absorbed. There is no need to study it and pick it apart for the work itself is communication, says Maurice Blanchot (a French literary critic). "It is intimacy shared in struggle by reading's demand and writing's: by the work as form and measure...and the same work's measureless excess, tending toward impossibility" (Blanchot, 198). Thus we read to "to 'make' the work communicate itself" (198). This type of communication, this style or form, forces the reader to think in a new way.

The style is not straightforward, linear narrative but a web of dialogue entangled with mimetic outbursts.
