    Mme Teeny Duchamp's curious claim:

    "Beckett, Duchamp and Chess in the 1930s"

  2. chess is more an argumentative conversation than a war! especially because there is no secrecy on the material plane, only the secrecy of meaning/implication.

  3. an embodied fantasy of a certain kind of cured or curable language.

  4. could be a metaphor for war mebbe but one whose own materialist material function is wary of and a restraint on the unfettered liberties of metaphor itself.

  5. Yes, I like that, a metaphor that went its own way.

    Misha Tal said a chess player was an artist and his opponent's critic at the same time. But then, he was Misha Tal.

  6. "was an artist and his opponent's critic at the same time"

    that's perfect.
