"A Lover's Discourse" is constructed by 'a lover', a solitary
subject and the language (discourse). The speaking subject, the I
who addresses his imagination in the language to the imaginary beloved,
an absent one. Also, this lover is a role who exists only in the fragmented
discourse -- he is constructed in the outburst language, which discloses
not a love story (with development of plots), love theory or philosophy.
On the contrary, this discourse is a sort of "verbal hallucination" (6)
which indicates various figures such as Waiting, Jealousy, Mad and
so on -- they are not organized, arranged and be classified by certain
rules or with a view of an end. These figures will recall our memories
of and give us "the delight of understanding" (9) when our "amorous feeling"
(4) and imagination are aroused and moved by those figures. Then, the text
becomes writable because each figures are memories of books, encounters
of the lover which are never fully completed -- they are always dynamic
for the readers to attach their fantasy and imagination.
