SANTOS, Camila Backes dos  e  MOSCHEN, Simone Zanon. Cutting for reading: What "Tree of codes" can teach us about the art of listening. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2020, vol.32, n.3, pp. 515-532. ISSN 0103-5665.

This article discusses the specificity of psychoanalytic listening in clinical practice stemming from issues raised by the work of young North-American writer Jonathan Safran Foer, awarded for the novels Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close and Everything is Illuminated. Foer is also the author of Tree of Codes, regarded by literary critics as an impossible book, the outcome of a cutting, digging and extraction process done to the compilation of short stories The Street of Crocodiles, by Polish writer Bruno Schulz. By cutting out ninety percent of Schulz's work, Foer reached a hard to classify result. In this article, we call Tree of codes a book-sculpture-object-work-of-art, as it allowed us to propose and circumvent the notion of poetic of extraction. This notion acts as a hinge that articulates Freud's and Lacan's psychoanalysis and Foer's literature in order to advance the proposition of an equation that relates the process of cutting for reading and the art of listening in psychoanalysis.

Palavras-chave : psychoanalysis; listening; literature; poetics; extraction.
