This Johnson, though he's been dead for twenty years now, was a herbalist by trade, though I'd say he was more than that. When a woman found herself too round for her liking and showing no blood by the moon, it was Johnson she visited with only a lantern for company. And when she came back all flat and smiling she said it was Mistletoe or Cat-nip or some such, but I say he sucked it out for the Devil. Nevertheless, it being daylight and a crowd promised such as we see only for a dog and a bear.

I took Jordan on a hound-lead and pushed my way through the gawpers and sinners until we got to the front and there was Johnson himself trying to charge money for a glimpse of the thing. I lifted Jordan up and I told Johnson that if he didn't throw back his cloth and let us see this wonder I'd cram his face so hard into my breasts that he's wish he'd never been suckled by a woman, so truly would I smother him.

He starts humming and hawing and reaching for some coloured jar behind his head, and I thought, he'll not let no genie out on me with its forked tongue and balls like jewels, so I grabbed him and started to push him into my dress. He was soon coughing and crying because I haven't had that dress off in five years.

It was yellow and livid and long. A banana?

Science and Time in Jeanette Winterson

What on God's good earth was a banana? There was no good woman could put that to her mouth, and for a man it was the practice of cannibals. We had not gone to church all these years and been washed in the blood of Jesus only to eat ourselves up the way the Heathen do. I pulled on the hound-lead in order to take Jordan away, but the lead came up in my hands. I ducked down into the shuffle of bare feet and torn stockings and a gentleman's buckle here and there. He was gone. My boy was gone. I let out a great bellow such as cattle do and would have gone on bellowing till Kingdom Come had not some sinner taken my ear and turned me to look under Johnson's devilish table.

I saw Jordan standing stock still. He was standing with both his arms upraised and staring at the banana above Johnson's head. I put my head next to his head and looked where he looked and I saw deep blue waters against a pale shore and trees whose branches sang with green and birds in fairground colours and an old man in a loin-cloth. This was the first time Jordan set sail. See All Customer Reviews. Shop Books. Read an excerpt of this book! Add to Wishlist. USD Sign in to Purchase Instantly.

Gender, Literature and the Enigma of Consciousness

Time is a great deadener; people forget, get bored, grow old, go away. Oranges Time is a great deadener. People forget, grow old, get bored…. Had she forgotten? Had time worn away her anger? Passion 35 I started a one-woman campaign, the sort you read about in the papers…. Time is a great deadener. Sexing What do you want me to say?

This is a form of what Gregory Ulmer calls the puncept, a generation of new meaning though an unconventional arrangement of known terms. By constructing a metatextual game with her readers, Winterson appeals to their emotions, demanding a longer relationship than the consumptive act of reading a book. For Winterson, this ability of writing to speak to more than its literal context is an advantage of the form, something the author should exploit to its full potential. In Art Objects, she claims, We seem to have returned to a place where play, pose and experiment are unwelcome and where the idea of art is debased.

At the same time, there are a growing number of people…who want to find something genuine in the literature of their own time and who are unconvinced by the glories of reproduction furniture. Her latest novel, The Gap of Time, follows Weight in wearing its indebtedness to a specific text on its sleeve.

As in Weight, she foregrounds the incomplete nature of any retelling. In this way, she presents her retelling as an accident, a haphazard reconstruction from the private contexts that inform her thought. As such, even within her work with an unambiguous source text, Winterson returns to her metatexual game, appealing to the fluid context of these phrases.
