14. Scarry continues her discussion on the unsharability of pain in that its cause
lies in the fact that pain “takes no object” and therefore “more than any other phenomenon,
resists objectification in language.” She states that pain can not be shared because
we are unable to objectify it externally to ourselves and therefore are unable to
affirm it in the “sharable world”. p5. 15. Scarry. p3

P27 34. Scarry. p 324 The author states that “the made object is simply the made-locus
across which the power of creation is magnified and redirected back onto its human
agents who are now caught up in the cascade of self-revision they have themselves
authored.” The collective making of “artefacts” creates the necessary gap filling
