Writing-Terrors: A Dialectical Lyric



Writers of theology do not need handbooks of method so much as examples of how to praise God without praising the human powers that claim divine authority for inflicting their terrors. The essay by Mayra Rivera in Polydoxy provides such an example when it joins the precepts of “decolonial” thinking to the lure of embodied narrative. Her example can be doubled by turning to Foucault's practice of the writing of bodies, powers, and divinities.
