  • Music contra Life
    • Abstract: Music like literature and the other arts plays an important role in life. For many, it is a source of entertainment, enjoyment, and pleasure. For others though such as the late Miles Davis, its role in their lives is much greater: something closer to a life-giving force, rather than merely a pleasant diversion. One has an intimation of this power when the musician summed up his life with the statement, "Music has been my life"—a statement wherein one feels both the potential of music to give life as well as to take it away.Still, in spite of the power of music over life, almost nothing has been written about it in the philosophical tradition. The most significant comments on the topic come from Friedrich Nietzsche ... Read More

  • Introduction to Focus: A Life in Theory
    • Abstract: The biography of a writer poses certain theoretical concerns that might not arise if the subject had a different profession. For one thing, there's something monumental about the very form of the biography, as if the subject's own life were expected to be worthy of a reader's extended interest. Biographies are usually devoted to persons whose works and deeds have made them remarkable, such that a narrative of their lives will provide greater insight into the accomplishments that are already well known. And, along those lines, we might want to read biographies of our favorite writers in the hopes of seeing how their lives have reflected, inspired, or otherwise contributed to their writings. But writers are ... Read More

  • Why Freud Now'
    • Abstract: Why Freud' Why now' These are easy questions to ask when faced with Élizabeth Roudinesco's new book, Freud: In His Time and Ours. It is easy to dismiss Freud for his failings: a seemingly overt misogyny, participation in a class system from which he greatly benefitted, lack of foresight for the coming horror of the Nazi regime, to name a few. Roudinesco's biography deftly defends his shortcomings by demonstrating the brilliance of the man and his work. Roudinesco's text is also smart because it leaves out the conclusions, thus avoiding simplistic parallels or too narrowly focused or time-sensitive assessments. It is a book about Freud in our time, without highlighting specific historical or cultural events. ... Read More

  • The Abyss Looks Back
    • Abstract: By allowing themselves [i.e. philosophers] to still think at all vis-a-vis the naked reproduction of existence, they behave as the privileged; by leaving things in thought, they declare the nullity of their privilege . . . There is no exit from the entanglement. The only responsible option is to deny oneself the ideological misuse of one's own existence, and as for the rest, to behave in private as modestly, inconspicuously and unpretentiously as required, not for reasons of good upbringing, but because of the shame that when one is in hell, there is still air to breathe.My breath was taken away when I first read this passage in the Jephcott translation in 1974, just as it was when I read it again as a quotation in ...

  • Pursuing a Remnant of Utopia
    • Abstract: In his address, Public Space and Political Public Sphere: The Biographical Roots of Two Motifs in My Thought, presented upon receipt of the Kyoto Prize in Art and Philosophy in 2004, Jürgen Habermas noted that when philosophers lecture on the lives and work of other philosophers we "usually limit ourselves to stating only bare biographical facts—when these thinkers were born, lived, and died." There are two reasons for this. In his own words, "lives of philosophers do not provide the stuff of legends," instead what is important is that philosophers "leave behind is a new, uniquely formulated and often enigmatic set of thoughts with which later generations will repeatedly tussle." The second reason is one that is ... Read More

  • The Rise and Fall of Carl Schmitt
    • Abstract: It's hard to account for a biography that, its author acknowledges, is "of such tortuous dimension" and which follows Schmitt's works and their revisions closely, sometimes almost month by month, across much of the 96 years of his life. At over 550 pages of text, the biography "comes close to a chronicle," which "observes and records the sequence of events that made up Schmitt's problematic life, as well as his conscious attempts at finding normative orientation and stability."Summary is also difficult because the book "tells the scandalous story of a 'life lived in the state of exception,' in which the experience of political and personal crises are inextricably linked with one another." So the book analyses ... Read More

    • Abstract: Of the three major biographies now available—Louis-Jean Calvert's Roland Barthes (1990, translated into English in 1994), Marie Gil's Roland Barthes: Au Lieu de la vie (2012), and Tiphaine Samoyault's Roland Barthes: A Biography (originally published in French in 2015 for the centenary of its subject's birth) has all the earmarks of an "official" biography, even if it has not been designated so publicly. It contains archival materials—from note cards, journals, and letters, to earlier drafts of published works and plans for works left undone, which have previously not been made available by the estate, as well as discussions of the final three lecture course lecture Barthes delivered from 1977-1979. It also ... Read More

  • In the Event of Deleuze
    • Abstract: Biographies of philosophers are always tricky, given the uncertain relationship between philosophers' lives and their thought, but the problems are compounded when the philosopher lives a relatively uneventful life. Such is the case of Gilles Deleuze, who seldom traveled, founded no school, sought no followers, and promulgated no particular method. François Dosse, in his 2007 Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari: Intersecting Lives, side-stepped the broad life/thought issue by simply shuttling between anecdotal narratives of the life and lengthy summaries of individual books. He addressed the difficulty of animating Deleuze's uneventful life by conducting multiple interviews with students, friends, and colleagues ... Read More

  • Do We Need a New Biography of Michel Foucault'
    • Abstract: In the 34 years since his death, there has been no lack of interest in Michel Foucault's work. His ideas continue to be analysed, critiqued, utilised, and cited, across an ever-broadening range of disciplines. New books of material by Foucault, whether lecture courses or other previously unpublished material, have appeared at a rapid rate over the last twenty years. Most of these have been quickly translated into English and other languages. Yet there has been no new biography of Foucault for twenty-five years. Didier Eribon's biography was translated in 1991, and David Macey's The Lives of Michel Foucault and James Miller's The Passions of Michel Foucault both appeared in 1993.Naturally, some of the many books on ...

  • Displacing Stuart Hall
    • Abstract: Stuart Hall's Familiar Stranger is a compelling introduction—but to what' Despite appearances, it is not a memoir; it is not an autobiography. Hall admits that he "never wanted to write a memoir." It is not that long-awaited, single authored book by Stuart Hall, since it is actually the result of a conversation with his long-time friend and interlocutor Bill Schwarz, re-affirming Hall's commitment to collective and collaborative work. The book constantly displaces one's expectations, even as it provides a rewarding feast of history, sociology, theory, politics and—oh yes, biography. This is a book about relations—Hall has always been a leading advocate of the view that reality is relational—and displacements.Hall ... Read More

    • Abstract: A historian of twentieth-century celebrity culture might include in a footnote the curious emergence, brief duration, and inauspicious decline of a "star system" in academic literary studies in last quarter of the century. The recent publication of an authorized biography of Stanley Fish, who was among the best known of those stars in the brave o'er-hanging firmament of higher education in the 1980s and 1990s, offers an occasion to reflect upon this strange moment in modern literary studies. After all, Fish was not merely one among many stars at the time, but he also developed a persona as well as a critical theory that actively fueled this sort of academic glamour, decadence, and celebrity in literary studies at ...

    • Abstract: Here, at the terminal point of my intellectual life, I have, in the spirit of the late Edward W. Said's last writings, honed it into my late style.When I was seventeen years old, I was introduced to the work of William Spanos as a high school policy debater, an activity and identity that he would always view with skepticism. As a teenager just discovering the seductive potentiality of critical theory, I found that, by learning to appreciate his particular brand of the "radicalization of Heidegger," Bill's criticism of American Empire resonated with me. Bill's work, especially as it circulated in the world of high school and college debate, showed me the importance of unearthing and confronting the logics American ... Read More

  • A Portrait of the Artist and Everyone Around Her
    • Abstract: First published in France 2009, Viviane Forrester's newly translated book presents a brief look at the life of Virginia Woolf, one of the most influential writers of the modernist movement. According to Forrester, Woolf was interested in life and yearned "to embrace the whole world with the arms of understanding." The book, which is replete with quotations from both Virginia and her husband Leonard Woolf's personal diaries, intrigues and entices readers. Forrester uses a quote from Woolf's personal diary as evidence of the author's difficulty in pinpointing this thing we call 'life': '"Why is there not a discovery in life' Something one can lay hands on & say, 'This is it''" Indeed, although life was the strange ...

These words from the author of A Frolic of His Own (1994) reached the ears of a well-known scholar, Joseph Tabbi, who embodies what any serious Gaddis reader ought to be: an apt and thorough listener.In this long-awaited biography entitled Nothing Grew but the Business, Tabbi provides a magnificent source book on the life and work of a major, innovative American writer of the twentieth century. Tabbi's book is all the more welcome as Gaddis was secretive and self-effacing, eluding any biographical questions in interviews.In twelve chapters, Tabbi retraces the personal and ... Read More

    • Abstract: In the 1960s, rock music revolutionized the music industry. But the change was not immediate, nor was it readily apparent to the industry executives. When Clive Davis, for example, was made chief operating officer at Columbia Records in 1965, its best-selling music included Broadway soundtracks like South Pacific, My Fair Lady, and Camelot, and artists such as Mitch Miller, who had produced eleven Sing Along albums in a row that went gold. Its roster at the time was limited to Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, and Paul Revere & The Raiders, who were selling the most of the four. Though Dylan gave the company "prestige," his record sales "were good, rather than great." His only major single at the time was ... Read More

  • Theory and the Life of the Critic
    • Abstract: Are critics' lives relevant to their criticism' Over time, the answers to this question have veered back and forth, from far left to far right, from alpha to omega. Of course they are, say the phenomenologists. Nietzsche thought that every philosophy was the biography of its author. Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, and Merleau-Ponty felt that the whole purpose of thinking was to get an understanding of lived experience. Heidegger was like them an existentialist, but he thought it was enough to note that a thinker had been born, lived, and died. The so-called New Critics in North America wanted to keep their aesthetics pure, and they totally ruled out authors' biographies and intentions. Their formalism had no place for the ... Read More

    • Abstract: In the world of contemporary classical music, it isn't uncommon for composers to bend, stretch, and manipulate the physical environment of performance–spatiality, in other words, is fair game. Last year, I witnessed a performance of John Luther Adams's "Ten Thousand Birds" at MassMOCA in which listeners were invited to wander around, kneel, sprawl–there was nary an armrest, nor a place to kick back with either languor or critical poise, and say, "Ah, this is how it's supposed to sound." And this is nothing new; in 1994, LaMonte Young created The Dream House, tantalizingly described by Kyle Gann:Walk into The Base 9:7:4 Symmetry and you'll hear a whirlwind of pitches swirl around you.

His forays therein—especially a marriage that made him feel vulnerable and defensive—have baffled and wounded him, drawn from his emotional reactions a sort of mind-pickling element that has turned him sour and obsessive and determined to prove that love is a lie, and that people who claim to be in love are liars.Divorced, living in a relationship that purports to be casual and open, having the occasional affair to prove his disbelief in the value of fidelity, he observes an openly loving couple (Cara and Matt) in his local supermarket. They offend him. What liars they must be! He decides to insert himself in their lives and ... Read More

"Calaboose" is defined by Merriam-Webster as "a local jail," and it comes from the Spanish calabozo, which means "dungeon." Now, imagine a jail or dungeon can look like different things to different people, maybe even a former life full of "false impressions, / pride and blame." In Out from Calaboose, the cover art of which features a large egg on a stormy coastline, new life entails awakening from "grilled iron / and locked rooms" to presence, intimacy, and oneness. Even the first poem's opening line—"I can't remember what I left behind . . . "—contributes to a sense of awakening; although it's not ... Read More

Many have tried such time-bending through meditation, yoga, and recently mindfulness, as well as less reliable means like teleportation, time-travel, and astral projection. Others have attempted to explain exactly what such bends in time might truly mean. Science doesn't make it easy. Einstein uses the term "space-time" in order to help stem any confusion between time, as understood by poets and other earthlings, and time as astrophysicists might understand it.

  • Occupy Policy with Wild Edges
    • Abstract: When we say "political poetry" these days, there are implications in the phrase about both political "content" and advancing "forms." How a book employs both in co-ordination may be the best measure of its potential effectiveness, but there is a built-in ineffectiveness, too, that comes with the territory not just of "poetry" but of all "Art" as we know it. Critics Terry Eagleton and Jacques Rancière have described the dual nature of our aesthetics as both potentially emancipatory and persistently repressive. I have selected four recent valuable books of poetry, each exemplifying another way of employing political content and advancing forms so that we can look at this conundrum: with one book borrowing a popular ...

Choosing to reinterpret the twelfth century story of the tragic lovers Tristan and Iseult during the "last days" (presumably human kind's last days) allows the poet to posit the supremacy of love across time as well as the nature of the last days, with its harsh intolerance ...

Visible Instruments, Michael Kelleher's gorgeous new collection from CHAX is a pleasure and an accomplishment on its own terms, while perpetuating Ashbery's mode in ways that are appropriative and therefore a continuation, rather than merely imitative.

Already the twenty-first century has seen at least two Scarlet Letter operas composed and performed. But for poet David Mason and composer Lori Laitman, the 1850 narrative about seventeenth-century Massachusetts proved irresistibly dramatic and urgently relevant for reinvention in their own vision.

In his new collection, Phased II, from Poets Wear Prada, George Held tackles the moon a second time. With the first poem, Held strips the moon of that weighty symbolism, telling us it is, "Just hard rock / For the moonstruck." This distinction between the indifferent object and the subjective feeling of the observer allows Held to then engage not only in creating a personal mythology around the moon but to probe the boundaries of meaning itself.One of the more speculative poems in the collection asks,What if the moon disappearedand left us bereftof ...

Its tropes and conflicts will be familiar to readers of Frederick Douglass and other bondsmen and women who sought salvation through literacy. But that is where the similarities between Rocklin's story of a displaced Abyssinian prince and Douglass and others end, and the ingenuity of this novel begins. ... Read More

    • Abstract: M. Allen Cunningham founded Atelier26 Books in 2011 out of deep personal convictions as a reader and writer, with the hope of helping other writers, and with the aim of bringing a writer's sensibility to the press's editing and publishing practices. Among the core Atelier26 principles is the belief that reading is far more than just another form of consumerism and that idiosyncratic works—even those that exist without a topical "hook" or whose authors lack a "platform"—have an integral place in literary culture, and that, in fact, literary history is largely built upon such works.
