  • The Man Who Refused to Smile: Henning Mankell's Wallander Series and
           Postmodern Cynicism
    • Authors: Gregorek; J.
      Pages: 153 - 179
      Abstract: Henning Mankell describes his goal in the best-selling Wallander novels as an examination of the social antagonisms in his native Sweden, particularly with regard to race and immigration, within the commercial genre of the police procedural. This essay complicates Mankell's claims, which have been widely accepted by critics. Rather, the author situates Mankell's Wallander series in the literary tradition named by Ernest Mandel as the "disintegrative" thriller, which Mandel sees emerging in response to late capitalism's restructuring of electoral politics and in the context of Sweden's recent neoliberal turn. Social and political conditions in Sweden are ripe for the production of the cultural affect Peter Sloterdijk diagnoses as "cynical reason" or "modern cynicism" in his influential work, Critique of Cynical Reason. For Sloterdijk, the conflicted postmodern cynic affirms the post-Enlightenment project of ideological critique, the unmasking of concealed truth, although he has lost faith in the efficacy of this project. Sloterdijk's account provides a fascinating analogue to European detective figures noted for their "authenticity" or "realism," and the Wallander series presents a provocative fable of disillusionment: a melancholic antihero defending the embattled welfare state, while uncovering the corruption of that same state, who gradually descends into the highly symbolic oblivion of Alzheimer's disease. This analysis of the Wallander character as postmodern cynic explores the ironies of a detective who no longer retains firm convictions of the likelihood of justice or the integrity of the individual mind. Ideally, this consideration of Mankell's best-selling series helps to explain its enormous appeal—how it speaks to its multiple audiences—and what constitutes realism in crime fiction today.

  • "The Sea, Not the Ocean": Anthropocene Fiction and the Memory of
           (Non)human Life
    • Authors: Vermeulen; P.
      Pages: 181 - 200
      Abstract: Starting from the observation that the notion of the Anthropocene invites us to alter the ways in which we imagine human life (and the relations between different human lives), this essay argues that transnational accounts of literature and culture—in the fairly new field of oceanic studies, for instance—need to expand their scope from intercultural relations to include the relationships between different (human) forms of life and (human as well as nonhuman) life forms. The essay develops this argument through a dialogue between J. M. Ledgard's planetary novel Submergence from 2011 and contemporary theories of the posthuman (Ray Brassier, Eugene Thacker) and the Anthropocene (Ian Baucom, Dipesh Chakrabarty), in order to demonstrate that the literary novel has a vital role to play in the imagining of new forms of (non)human relatedness. Developing Submergence's distinction between the (radically nonhuman) ocean and the (human-related) sea, the essay puts forward the argument that human life in the Anthropocene is marked by what the essay theorizes, with the help of Emmanuel Levinas, Giorgio Agamben, and Walter Benjamin, as "immemorial life": a relation to radically nonhuman life forms that cannot be actualized in the imagining and remembering of human life in the Anthropocene.

  • Microfinance Lit: Jhumpa Lahiri's "Sexy," the Grameen Bank, and Kiva
    • Authors: Sinykin; D.
      Pages: 201 - 217
      Abstract: This essay develops a poetics of microfinance through an attempt to account for Jhumpa Lahiri's strange mention of the Grameen Bank in the short story "Sexy" from her collection Interpreter of Maladies. It shows how Lahiri's allusion links the intimacy of simulated global space to a central development in contemporary transnational economics. Exploring the discourses promulgated by the Grameen Bank and Kiva, a successful nonprofit microcredit organization based out of San Francisco, the essay reveals what makes microfinance seductive as a form of aid. The poetics of microfinance offers subjects a model through which they can link interpersonal intimacy to global financial projects. Lahiri's story features a scale model of the globe in a building called the Mapparium. The Mapparium is a simulacrum that produces the illusion of global intimacy, which emerges from the frisson of feeling both central and close to everywhere, a sense of nearness across distance. This essay argues that microfinance institutions such as Kiva use the poetics of microfinance to bridge bodily affect with abstract finance, thereby profiting from the further immiseration of the world's poor.

  • Psychoanalysis on Sunday: Lacan, Cinema, Comedy
    • Authors: Buse; P.
      Pages: 219 - 238
      Abstract: This article examines the place of film comedy in Jacques Lacan's psychoanalysis. It takes as its starting point Lacan's most extensive consideration of a single film, the comedy Never on Sunday (1960), directed by Jules Dassin and set in the Greek port of Piraeus. It places Lacan's reading of the film in relation to his other interventions on cinema, which are scattered throughout his seminars and are more numerous and heterogeneous than generally assumed, drawing especially on cinema of the late 1950s and early 1960s. The article shows how Lacan's analysis of Never on Sunday contributes to the articulation of a theory of comedy in The Ethics of Psychoanalysis, a seminar best known for its treatment of Antigone and tragic drama. It then locates this theory of comedy and reading of Never on Sunday in relation to key concepts of the Ethics such as jouissance and the moral good(s). It finishes by proposing a general model of Lacanian reading as "cut" rather than interpretation, that is, an analysis that does not seek to account for a text as a whole but, rather, to find the correct point at which to break into it.

  • Paul's Letter to the Congolese: Allegory, Optimism, and Universality in
           Alain Mabanckou's Blue White Red
    • Authors: Arnett, J; Wright, A.
      Pages: 239 - 265
      Abstract: This essay takes a close look at the way Alain Mabanckou positions himself vis-à-vis discipline and market by way of his negotiations of a range of terms—French, francophone, postcolonial, and world literature—and the ways that such disciplinarity and appeal might be generated in his first major novel, Blue White Red. How Mabanckou picks his way through these intercalating terms speaks to the appeal and centrality of his work in a world literature canon. The authors argue that Mabanckou quite consciously and effectively makes use of the figures of allegory and parable from a distinctly biblical context, mapping the permutations and vicissitudes of his protagonist's rise and fall in fortunes to the life and narrative of Saint Paul—primarily his conversion and his epistolary interventions in the shape of a universal(ized) Christianity. The authors ground this Pauline allegory in Alain Badiou's own mobilization of Saint Paul as the engineer and emissary of a certain kind of antiphilosophical intervention. This parallel thereby foregrounds the liminality of the transnational African emigrant and his or her struggles with identity, citizenship, economics, and esteem in the novelistic form, which is read as a complex cautionary tale about the erosion and challenges to those transnational aspirations of success and seamless transnational citizenship. In this manner, Blue White Red disempowers narratives that blindly valorize emigration, and the text serves as a kind of epistle to those whose aspirations require self-conscious blindness to the complexities and hurdles to effortless movement across borders in the globalized economy.

  • David Simple and the Ethics of Genre
    • Authors: Knight; B.
      Pages: 267 - 295
      Abstract: In their ongoing rejection of what I call "ethical retirement," Sarah Fielding's pair of novels, David Simple (1744) and Volume the Last (1753), mobilize a satirical criticism of mid-century worldly conceptions of the ethical worth of private and privative individualism. The works reveal a peripatetic ethics that serves as a formal alternative to both the values of cynical self-interest and of a generic tradition of beatus ille poetic images associated with narratives of ethical retirement. The two novels produce a drama in which genres vie with genres; modes of storytelling in this generic romance turn out to define ethical relation and to establish limits and laws that determine the form of relations between selves and others. The novels taken as a pair gesture past notions of ethical retirement by proposing through this drama of genres that faithful relation to God and vulnerable responsiveness to others are one and the same—a commitment that must be translated into worldly action and exposure. The genres of the picaresque, the quixotic, and the Joban fable will, the novels indicate, allow us to imagine that translation better than the literary traditions that emphasize ethical retirement. Tracing the drama of genres inaugurated by the first novel's opening generic engagements into their denouement in Volume the Last, we can confront the span and the dialectical motion of Sarah Fielding's winnowing of the ethical potential of genres.
