retentissement / reverberation

“What echoes in me is what I learn with my body:
something sharp and tenuous suddenly wakens this body … the word, the image, the thought function like a whiplash. My inward body begins vibrating as though shaken by trumpets answering each other, drowning each other out: the incitation leaves its trace, the trace widens and everything is (more or less) ravaged. The space of reverberation is the body … far from “floating” while the other speaks, I listen completely … Reverberation makes reception into an intelligible din … as if listening itself were to become a state of utterance: in me, it is the ear which speaks.”

from A Lover’s Discourse by Roland Barthes
