Twilight walk

Twilight walk

(p.49) Twilight walk

Trinh T. Minh-ha

Fordham University Press

This chapter describes the epiphanies the persona—a woman—has encountered while out on a walk during twilight. It explores the various meanings attributed to the color gray which appears itself like a being unbound, a prelude to a journey the persona takes as her mind similarly wanders. Her reveries are short-lived, however, as “the world comes to the walker” and the persona is faced once more with the prevailing theme of this book—war. The perspective then shifts from a journey to a database, as the wandering mind comes face to face with the harsh reality of war and struggles with memory deletion and retrieval.

Keywords:   twilight, twilight walk, gray, journey, wartime, reality, war, database, computing
