  • Introduction
    • Abstract: General issues of Mosaic gather together a grouping of essays from a particular submission period. Taken as a whole and given the discrete and often focused arguments that are a staple of academic writing, the general issue tends toward the fragmentary. This said, at times the general issue also provides a snapshot view of the largest questions on the minds of the journal's extended community of readers and writers—thus the general issue as barometer or indicator. In the case of the current issue, 50.4, which takes its shape from essays accepted between the fall of 2015 and the fall of 2016, the content consistently brushes up against a loose and broadly defined notion of governmentality.As is well-known from ...

  • Henry David Thoreau on Spontaneous Order and its Enemies
    • Abstract: It often seems there are two Thoreaus: the uncompromising social reformer on the one hand, and the rhapsodic naturalist on the other. But Thoreau would not have consented to this division of his work, for from his point of view he never stopped being the naturalist, just as he did not respect any hard and fast boundary between what happens in the woods and what happens in towns. He wanted "to regard man as an inhabitant, or a part and parcel of Nature" (Thoreau, "Walking" 185), stating bluntly that a man could be "himself a subject for the naturalist" (Walden 283). Thoreau's way of seeming to shed his affiliation to his species and describe its members as others might describe muskrats has always been striking. In ... Read More

  • Growing Up to be a Man: Son Revisited
    • Abstract: Tar Baby is perhaps the most contested novel Toni Morrison has penned, specifically because of the portrayal of the character of Son. Son is possibly the only truly static male character within Morrison's oeuvre. Other Morrisonian males—for example, Paul D. and Milkman—transform during the course of the texts in which they appear. Paul D. confronts his anxiety about his masculinity and chooses to affirm the values of love and connection, while Milkman comes to reject both his own refusal to engage with life as well as the violence his best friend embraces. Son, on the other hand, does not in any way transform or mature in the course of the novel; the Son who jumps ship in the novel's first pages is in no ... Read More

  • The Prosthetic Pleasures of Guillaume Dustan
    • Abstract: It would be an understatement to say that Guillaume Dustan caused a stir during his brief literary career. As David Caron recalls in My Father and I: The Marais and the Queerness of Community, in the months preceding the 1996 release of Dustan's debut novel, Dans ma chambre, the news of the impending release of a gritty, no-holds-barred semi-autobiographical look at Paris' contemporary gay sex culture, complete with depictions of "barebacking," or the practice of unprotected anal intercourse between men, spread through gay circles like wildfire (94-95). Fueling further interest, Dans ma chambre was published under strict anonymity with not so much as an author photo; Guillaume Dustan was the pen name of William ... Read More

  • Producing Awkwardness: Affective Labour and Masculinity in Popular Culture
    • Abstract: In a post-Fordist world, the fixity of an assembly line that produces goods for consumption is no longer the dominant model of labour. Rather, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri discuss in Multitude, at the end of the last century, "industrial labor lost its hegemony and in its stead emerged 'immaterial labor,' that is, labor that creates immaterial products, such as knowledge, information, communication, a relationship, or an emotional response." An especially important element of immaterial labour is affective labour, which "produces or manipulates affects," including "a feeling of ease, well-being, [and] satisfaction" (108). Paolo Virno sees comfort as one kind of "emotional situation of the multitude in the ... Read More

  • "Move to the City": Infrastructure and Globalization in How to Get Filthy
           Rich in Rising Asia
    • Abstract: "Move to the city!" (3). This first directive, given to the ambitious protagonist of Mohsin Hamid's How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, not only establishes the city as the space of possibility for economic prosperity, but also dismisses other spaces and effectively reinforces the dichotomy between rurality and urbanity. Although this directive is ironic—because hardly anyone will prosper, let alone become filthy rich—the city is still posited as the space required for all other steps the protagonist needs to take to become wealthy: university education, working/slaving for a master, starting a company, expanding the business, and destroying the competition. While urban space is suggested to be more conducive to ... Read More

  • Science as Comedy and the Myth of Progress in Ian McEwan's Solar
    • Abstract: Before its publication in 2010, Ian McEwan's novel Solar was hailed as a major literary contribution to the climate change debate, an acclaim which raised expectations the author was then accused of not having met.1 The text's humorous elements have provoked particular disappointment because, as some critics felt, they did not do justice to the goal of increasing public awareness of the serious threat that global warming represents. In the words of Greg Garrard, Solar "is limited both by McEwan's choice of satirical allegory as a genre, and by the topical parables that continually dissipate the momentum of the allegorical plot" ("Solar" 123). Richard Kerridge criticized the novel's protagonist as an "unsympathetic" ... Read More

  • Teju Cole and Ralph Ellison's Aesthetics of Invisibility
    • Abstract: In an intriguing chapter that closes the 2008 Companion to Emily Dickinson, noted poet and scholar Joshua Weiner suggests that "when I listen to Thelonious Monk I hear Emily Dickinson; and when I listen to Emily Dickinson I hear Thelonious Monk." Admitting the ahistoricity of his comparative reading of these two radical figures' work, he nonetheless maintains that it is the way that their work brings "empty space—a musical pause or rest that signifies a greater silence—into the very structural principle of their respective art that announces their relation as artistic cousins" (490). Here Weiner implicitly draws a distinction between the different forms of the unspoken and the invisible that Dickinson regularly ... Read More

  • Contemporary Memoirs of Mathematical Passion
    • Abstract: Mathematician Edward Frenkel appears in a 2014 episode of The Colbert Report to promote his memoir Love and Math: The Heart of Hidden Reality, which describes his journey from a mathematics student struggling against anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union to a successful professor in the United States. Introducing Frenkel, host Stephen Colbert playfully performs the spectacle of mathematical incomprehension: "You need no introduction, obviously, but I will do it anyway. You are a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. I don't have to tell people here that you actually worked on the free-field realizations of affine Kac-Moody algebras." Applause erupts from the audience. Colbert lists a few ... Read More

  • Sourceless Sunlight: Faulkner's Sanctuary and the Sacrificial Crisis
    • Abstract: This essay examines how William Faulkner establishes the various stages of what René Girard calls a "sacrificial crisis" to portray a social structure so pervaded with violence that it assumes metaphysical proportions in the eyes of victims. I argue that Girard's sacrificial crisis and the concept of mimetic desire that undergirds it propose a conception of identity that illuminates an unresolved and striking tension in Faulkner's novel. Girard ultimately offers an explanation of how the self develops through social relation, instead of conceiving itself on its own ground. Sanctuary evokes a particular modernist tension in this regard, for the novel is unmistakably invested in the Idealist and Romantic sources of ... Read More

  • Inauspicious Flames: A Feng-Shui Reading of The Spoils of Poynton
    • Abstract: In his preface to the New York edition of The Spoils of Poynton, Henry James presents readers with what is perhaps the most detailed account of his creative process for any single work, from the germ of inspiration "one Christmas Eve [. . .] dining with friends" (xxxix) to his opinions of the novel twelve years after its publication: "I have found myself so pleased with Mrs. Gereth, I confess, on resuming acquaintance with her, that [. . .] I shrink from breathing upon her any breath of qualification" (xlix). Add to this "the record James left in his notebooks of the genesis and development of The Spoils of Poynton," and we have more firsthand information about the writing of Spoils than "any of his other works" ...
