Everyone has memories that feel rife with significance, but said significance does not necessarily make sense to others. And if the best depiction of said memory is beyond traditional language, then playwrights like Claire Chafee use poetic language to communicate said significance. In Chafee's Why We Have a Body , four women tell their stories in a series of vignettes and monologues using poetic language, and yet any significance Chafee is trying to communicate gets lost in translation.
