Abstract

Les efforts de l'homme pour se procurer de la joie sont parfois dignes de l'attention du philosophe, écrit Victor Hugo dans L'Homme qui rit. Comme les autres romantiques, il fait pourtant peser un énorme soupçon sur le rire et sur la gaieté. Les rictus omniprésents sous sa plume et celle de ses contemporains appartiennent tant au sadisme qu'à la souffrance, tant au bourreau qu'à sa victime. Alors que notre époque se montre friande de bonne humeur, de fêtes, de festivals, Victor Hugo et ses contemporains des quatre coins de l'Europe jugent que la joie est mal à-propos, elle qui résonne au milieu des souffrances populaires. Il peut lui arriver de sourire ou de verser des larmes, mais le héros hugolien ne rit pas, sauf si on l'y oblige. Doit-on encore lire les romantiques aujourd'hui ? Oui, parce qu'ils nous rappellent qu'il faut résister à la dictature contemporaine de l'allégresse, du rire de force. Voilà pourquoi Rictus romantiques se termine par un « Éloge de la mauvaise humeur ».

Abstract

Atopological Trilogy creates new concepts for Deleuze-Guattarian thought without any heed for sectarian, sermonising, or dutiful readings of the philosophers. In Part I of the trilogy, “Becoming-Sexual of the Sexual,” Aracagök demonstrates the ways in which quantum theory and the concept of “complementarity” inform Deleuze and Guattari’s thought, especially in relation to “becoming” in general and “becoming-woman” and “becoming-queer” more particularly. Aracagök argues that the ways in which the philosophers put forward a ban on “becoming-man” with a certain degree of undecidability encapsulates (albeit in a cryptic form) other becomings, the most important of which is becoming-queer, or rather, the becoming-sexual of the sexual. In Part II: “Deleuze on Sound, Music, and Schizo-Incest,” Aracagök puts into resonance the sound, noise, and music (and the question) of schizo-incest with the intention of deterritorialising a notion of the meta-audible. If Kafka’s story, “The Investigations of a Dog” leads us to a realm of the “formless” which cannot be heard without destroying what we know as “hearing,” it also offers us a limit-experience of the meta-audible, which, when radicalised via the notions of “schizo-incest” and “self-shattering,” creates a line of flight that escapes even from the line of flight itself. All these maneuvers pose a serious challenge to Deleuze and Guattari, who claim that despite all his investigations, Kafka’s investigator dog is re-Oedipalised in the end. Proposing in the end a limit experience which Aracagök calls the “meta-audible,” he shows that Kafka’s more radical approach to sound creates a line of flight that escapes even from the line of flight itself

Abstract

Spiritual Shakespeares is the first book to explore the scope for reading Shakespeare spiritually in the light of contemporary theory and current world events. Ewan Fernie has brought together an exciting cast of critics in order to respond to the ‘religious turn’ in recent literary theory and to the spiritualized politics of terrorism and the ‘War on Terror’. Exploring a genuinely new perspective within Shakespeare Studies, the volume suggests that experiencing the spiritual intensities of the plays could lead us back to dramatic intensity as such. It tests spirituality from a political perspective, as well as subjecting politics to an unusual spiritual critique. Amongst its controversial and provocative arguments is the idea that a consideration of spirituality might point the way forward for materialist criticism. Reaching across and beyond literary studies to offer challenging and powerful contributions from leading scholars, this book
