Weep for the agonies and deaths of your people at the hands of genocidists. Brennan (1906– ), Supreme Court Justice. It casts the writer and his experience as exemplary of a more general and unchanging condition, in which the disembodied self, in the midst of the not-I (a landscape, a situation, an abstraction), converts the scene into an image of its own emotions.
