El cuento de la criada

"Nevertheless it hurts me to tell it over, over again. Once was enough: wasn’t once enough for me at the time? But I keep on going with this sad and hungry and sordid, this limping and mutilated story, because after all I want you to hear it, as I will hear yours too if I ever get the chance, if I meet you or you escape, in the future or in heaven or in prison or underground, some other place. What they have in common is that they’re not here. By telling you anything at all I’m at least believing in you, I believe you are there, I believe you into being. Because I’m telling you this story I will your existence. I tell, therefore you are."

Atwood, Margaret, The handmaid's tale, p.344
