  • Introduction: Allegory and Political Representation
    • Abstract: Allegory is always topical, but the mode seems closer to our experience of representative politics today than it has in many years. Thirty-five years after the publication of Stephen Greenblatt’s important collection of 1981, Allegory and Representation, we write in the shadow of elections (in the United States, in Europe) and referenda (in Greece, in Britain) that have worked with figures and slogans meant to stand for existing collectivities or to establish them. Aliquid, the Scholastic maxim reads, stat pro aliquo: this stands in the place of that. This, a minority of the electorate in the United States, stands for that, a spectral, archaic figure of a great America to whose mythological ... Read More

  • Literary Arendt: The Right to Political Allegory
    • Abstract: The problem thus arose of how man, if he is to live in a polis, can live outside of politics; this problem, in what sometimes seems a strange resemblance to our own times, very quickly became the question of how is it possible to live without belonging to a polity—that is, in the condition of apolity, or what we today would call statelessness. “How is it possible to live without belonging to any polity'—that is, the condition of apolity, or what we today would call statelessness,” asks Hannah Arendt in a reading of the trial of Socrates (Promise 6). Arendt’s question presents the predicament of statelessness as an inquiry into a tradition of political philosophy.2 Immediately following the ... Read More

  • Ruin Lust and Totalitarian Remnants
    • Abstract: Faced with the difficulty of allegorizing a political system such as totalitarianism, which is built of devious fiction that constantly morphs, plays, and evades definition, Nabokov’s novel Invitation to a Beheading instead allegorizes a particular temporality and architecture of totalitarianism. The novel addresses the strangeness of a ruin temporality and the inadequacy of Hitler’s and Speer’s architectural plans in their Ruinenwerttheorie. Using Nabokov’s novel, this article will make parallels between several terms: the “human body,” “architectural structure as body,” and “body politic.” If the human body is the classical model for architectural design insofar as architecture is designed to ...

  • Memory Heroics: Ethos Daimon
    • Abstract: Who will boast of being a mere impostor' The drunken man who blurts out an absurd command, the sleeping man who suddenly awakes and turns and chokes to death the woman sleeping at his side—are they not, perhaps, implementing one of the Company’s secret decisions' Heraclitus’s Fragment 247, ethos anthropoi daimon, is one of the earliest, perhaps even one of the most decisive, words of Western thought, particularly in the absence of more extant fragments from Anaximander. Hegel said of him, in his lectures on the history of philosophy, “Here we see land! There is no proposition of Heraclitus which I have not adopted in my logic” (qtd. in Barnes 57). At the same time, Heraclitus can also be argued to ... Read More

  • The Object of Allegory (A Polemic)
    • Abstract: [L]et us speak of the leaders; for why should anyone talk about the inferior philosophers' The leaders, in the first place, from their youth up, remain ignorant of the way to the agora [οὗτοι δέ που ἐκ νέων πρῶτον μὲν εἰς ἀγορὰν οὐκ ἴσασι τὴν ὁδόν ], do not even know where the court-room is, or the senate-house, or any other public place of assembly; as for laws and decrees, they neither hear the debates upon them nor see them when they are published; and the strivings of political clubs after public offices, and meetings, and banquets, and revellings with chorus girls—it never occurs to them even in their dreams to indulge in such things.

  • Allegory and Impasse: Revolutionary History and Revolutionary Modernity in
           Marx and Engels
    • Abstract: Marx is the philosopher of eternal new beginnings. Paul de Man’s 1970 essay “Literary History and Literary Modernity” closes on a provocation—the suggestion that “the bases for historical knowledge are not empirical facts but written texts, even if these texts masquerade in the guise of wars or revolutions” (165).2 The claim that access to empirical facts is mediated by written texts or even the slightly stronger claim that written texts form the bases of historical knowledge is hardly shocking. As Jonathan Arac writes, de Man’s words “‘merely’ recall what every good positivist already knew” (135).3 Yet they continue to provoke, because they also allow for a more counterintuitive reading, as if the truth ...

  • Bakhtin and Gogol, or, The Question of Allegory and the Politics of
           Carnival
    • Abstract: The messianic world is the world of universal [allseitiger] and integral actuality. Only in it does a universal history exist. Not as written history, but as festively enacted history. This festival is purified of all celebration. There are no festive songs. Its language is integral prose—prose which has burst the fetters of script and is understood by all the people (as the language of birds is understood by Sunday’s children). Carnival itself […] this, of course, is not a literary phenomenon. It wasn’t what he read about that pleased him, but more the very reading itself, or, to put it better, the process of the very reading, that right there out of the letters some word or other was eternally ...

  • Beyond Jameson: The Metapolitics of Allegory
    • Abstract: Whereas man is drawn towards the symbol, allegory emerges from the depths of being to intercept the intention, and to triumph over it. In his 1986 Social Text article “Third-World Literature in the Era of Multinational Capitalism,” Fredric Jameson (in)famously proclaimed that “all third world texts are […] necessarily allegorical, and in a very specific way: they are to be read as what I will call national allegories” (69; emphasis in original) predictably provoking strong reactions by scholars of this so-called third-world literature. Criticism of Jameson’s troubling overgeneralization focused upon his grouping of all literary texts by African, Asian, and Latin American writers together into one narrow ... Read More

  • The Allegorical Machine: Politics, History, and Memory in Horacio
           Castellanos Moya’s El sueño del retorno
    • Abstract: So kann ich nicht sagen, was ich nur meine. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Paul de Man proposes that of all literary modalities, it is allegory that best illuminates the temporal nature of existence—and of thought and action, in particular. Allegory, as de Man understands it, also sheds light on disjunction, on separation and finitude, as a constitutive moment or condition for history, politics, and all creative activity. If allegory discloses what de Man calls the “authentically temporal destiny” of existence, it also ruins the humanistic assumptions through which terms such as “existence,” “memory,” “language,” and even “the human” are ...

  • “God is God”: Essay on the Violence of Tautological
           Propositions
    • Abstract: The name Stanislas Breton (1912–2005) is probably not familiar to many US academics. A theologian and philosopher, he taught from 1970 to his retirement at the École normale supérieure in Paris. Breton was close to Althusser’s circle; some readers will recognize his name from Étienne Balibar’s references to the essay we translate below—or from references to Breton in the work of Michel de Certeau, Paul Ricoeur, and Barbara Cassin. “‘Dieu est Dieu’: Sur la violence des propositions tautologiques” (1989) is a remarkable, polemical, forcefully, and obliquely written work that stands, like much of Breton’s, where philosophical logic, political theology, and the confessional mode cross. Some of the rather ... Read More

  • Fictions of the Return
    • Abstract: Before a person may be declared missing in the legal sense, certain events independent of any judicial proceedings must have come to pass: it is necessary for an unexplained absence to have been observed, reported, and accepted as a fact. A mysterious disappearance needs, in short, to be granted; only then may a legal authority declare persons to be absentees, treating their rights and claims according to the rules that hold for their special status. Such considerations as how exactly a vanishing came to pass, what befell the absent person in the moment of going missing and in the time that followed it, are, for a declaration of legal absence, secondary. They may be temporarily or indefinitely unknown ... Read More

  • Radical Empiricism Revisited
    • Abstract: The most powerful force in contemporary continental theory today takes shape as radical or transcendental empiricism.1 Under this rubric, I class the work of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari (and those thinking with them and in their wake);2 the philosophy of science of Isabelle Stengers and of Bruno Latour;3 political and social thinkers that build on the Deleuzean initiative, such as Manual De Landa or, in a more limited fashion, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri;4 as well as the current revival of the thought of William James and Alfred Lloyd Whitehead.5 Included here, as well, would be variations of systems theory, especially those found in media studies and some stretches of the posthumanities. The overlap of ... Read More

  • Political Fiction, Ancient and Modern: From David’s Court to
           Fabrice’s Charterhouse
    • Abstract: I would like to begin with a brief autobiographical anecdote. In the late 1970s, through circumstances not entirely of my devising, I found myself working on two large projects separated from each other by nearly three thousand years—a critical biography of Stendhal and a book on biblical narrative. From time to time, I would ask myself whether I might be a little daft to be doing this, wondering whether there could be any conceivable connection between the two subjects. On the biblical side, because the David story is one of the greatest pieces of extended narrative in the Hebrew Bible, I drew many examples from it for my book. With the passage of time, it dawned on me that because the David story and ... Read More

  • Political Fiction, Anonymous and Pseudonymous (A Response to Robert Alter)
    • Abstract: In traditional Jewish homiletics, one strategy often adopted by the darshan or expositor was to select two texts as remote from each other as possible and, by a series of deft interpretative moves, to demonstrate their deep affinity. It is in something of this spirit, recalling the rabbinic adage that in scripture there is neither early nor late, that Robert Alter has traced for us the surprising parallels between the David story and The Charterhouse of Parma. In responding to his paper, I shall try to explore a little further his intermillennial pairing, taking as guide the two words of his title, “political” and “fiction,” but turning them around and, since the political has already received generous treatment ...

  • Response to Robert Alter, “Political Fiction”
    • Abstract: I’d like to pursue a connection that Robert Alter makes early in his lecture and use it to look at some of the implications of his argument and examples. It has to do with the kind of narrative commentary found in Stendhal and not in the David story, and that Alter thinks, surely rightly, is something that Stendhal “picked up from Fielding.” It is in one of those commentaries by Fielding, which Alter knows very well, since he wrote an excellent book on that author, that we get a remarkable comic anticipation of one of the governing ideas of his lecture: the idea that “the special purchase that fiction has on politics is through character.” I’m thinking of Fielding’s “praise of biography” in the ...

  • “Dialogue in Monologue”: Addressing Darwish in Hebrew
    • Abstract: In January 2002, Ramallah was besieged by the Israeli army. The Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish wrote A State of Siege (, ḥaalat ḥiṣaar), a book of interconnected poems grappling with life under military siege; they are poems that reflect on violence in its extreme and mundane expressions, on a sense of timelessness under siege, on boredom, and on poetry. In this cycle of poems, Darwish wonders when the siege might end, referring both to this specific siege of Ramallah, of which he became a symbol, and the Israeli occupation in general. But he also wonders about poetry’s capacity to act within and against narrowing borders. He addresses poetry and calls on it to “besiege your siege,” and to a poet (thus, to ... Read More

  • Chamoiseau’s Literary Creolization: The Stylistic Potential of a
           Vernacular
    • Abstract: In his novels and theoretical works, Martiniquan writer Édouard Glissant favors a process of creolization that entails a creative mixing of languages rather than a reinforcement of linguistic hierarchical binaries. For Glissant, creolization does not produce direct synthesis but resultants, a sort of polylingualism within. Glissant’s protégé, Martiniquan author Patrick Chamoiseau, also seeks to bridge the gap between standard and nonstandard language through a stylized hybrid. In an interview published in The French Review in 2006, Chamoiseau relays a lyrical piece of advice he gives to students, offering insight into the motivation behind his literary creolization. The following is my translation from the ... Read More
