"A genre-bending memoir, a work of 'autotheory' offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language.

תשעים אחוז מהספר לא הבנתי. מתוך המעט שאולי כן הבנתי הרוב עורר בי התנגדות או בחילה. בברור מקומי איננו בתרבות הקווירית ( )

i really enjoy the way maggie nelson writes and this book feels like an insight into, and exploration of, her thoughts. there are moments that feel almost brutally open but remain tender, while trying to put words to them i am reminded of the passage in the book which ends “it makes the brutal tender, which i’ve since learned is on of your principal gifts.” some passages in this book inspired a sense of awe and wonder in me, others (and some the same) inspired deep thought. there are many things i want to revisit and research around. so often i felt the satisfaction of someone so precisely expressing something i have felt but have not vocalised.

For a short book, this one manages to contain a lot and covers more ground than plenty of longer works. The Argonauts is Maggie Nelson's memoir and her reflections on her relationship with a gender fluid partner, her pregnancy, and her family. Throughout the book, Nelson questions, criticizes, and engages with identity, sexuality, queer theory, and childrearing. Thoughtful and wide-ranging, I found this book to be eye-opening and I can't recommend it enough to those interested in the concepts explored in this slim volume. ( )

I'd give this book extra points for its rebelliousness. It's part stream-of-consciousness memoir, part academic treatise. Of course, it brings important conversations to the table. The relationship depicted in the book was *real* and the passages where Nelson chronicled the grittiness, the stresses of the relationship -- those were the most real, the best.

I feel very torn about the academic nature of the book. The quotes from scholars, scattered into the prose, were illuminating and served as foundational points for Nelson to jump off from and go into her own conjecturing. At some points, though, it felt forced, like someone sharing thoughts about a common object of banal conversation, cloaked in a radical terminology but really deep down still the fancies of a (really educated) muggle dumping her intellectually masturbatory thought processes into a journal.

However, it was riveting, in the way only reading a journal can be. We got a cross-section of Nelson's life and a sampling of her philosophy on it, and the writing was fresh and moving. ( )

The book gets its title from the way the sailors on the Argo replaced parts of the ship; over time the entire ship was replaced, but it remained the Argo. We are like this. Reckoning with this sense is the project of a lifetime. It’s hard and comes at us in different ways. The book describes this phenomenon and its phenomenology through gender and pregnancy, and it has much to say on the specifics of both. The writing is extremely personal as it invokes frameworks and lenses from all over philosophy, literature, critical theory, and art. In a few places it made me weep. I loved it and want to write in its style, in its way. As the author writes, writing is a kind of processing, a kind of exploration that lets me think something through in a way that feels somehow more real than sitting with it nebulously. This book is the artifact of that processing and I am thankful for it. ( )
