Shakespeare’s hamlet in an era of textual exhaustion

27 Nov 2017-
Abstract: Shakespeare’s Hamlet in an Era of Textual Exhaustion examines how postmodern audiences continue to reengage with Hamlet in spite of our culture’s oversaturation with this most canonical of texts. Combining adaptation theory and performance theory with examinations of avantgarde performances and other unconventional appropriations of Shakespeare’s play, this volume examines Shakespeare’s Hamlet as a central symbol of our era’s “textual exhaustion,” a state in which the reader/ viewer is bombarded by text—printed, digital, and otherwise.

Abstract: Cet essai revient sur le processus de creation d’une forme courte sise entre le theâtre, le cirque contemporain et l’installation sonore, Hamlet sur le fil. L’adaptation de la piece-monument du repertoire occidental en contexte circassien a revele a son auteur a quel point le brouillage des roles et des ecritures allait reposer sur les tensions entre texte, textualites et textures. Ce flou ontologique aura permis la creation d’une oeuvre hybride reposant a la fois sur le geste assume du desequilibre acrobatique et sur un soliloque canonique compose d’acrobaties intellectuelles face a la recherche d’un equilibre. Il aura egalement permis d’envisager la figure d’Hamlet en funambule et en chercheur-createur. L’essai offre un regard intime sur les processus de traduction, d’adaptation et de transposition d’une figure, d’un geste impossible et d’une parole canonique ayant pour caracteristique de mettre en scene le doute et la valse-hesitation devant la prise de risque redemptrice.

Abstract: A series of provocative discussions on everything from individual authors to contemporary religious thinking, Against Interpretation and Other Essays is the definitive collection of Susan Sontag's best known and important works published in Penguin Modern Classics. Against Interpretation was Susan Sontag's first collection of essays and made her name as one of the most incisive thinkers of our time. Sontag was among the first critics to write about the intersection between 'high' and 'low' art forms, and to give them equal value as valid topics, shown here in her epoch-making pieces 'Notes on Camp' and 'Against Interpretation'. Here too are impassioned discussions of Sartre, Camus, Simone Weil, Godard, Beckett, Levi-Strauss, science-fiction movies, psychoanalysis and contemporary religious thought. Originally published in 1966, this collection has never gone out of print and has been a major influence on generations of readers, and the field of cultural criticism, ever since. Susan Sontag (1933-2004) was born in Manhattan and studied at the universities of Chicago, Harvard and Oxford. She is the author of four novels - The Benefactor, Death Kit, The Volcano Lover and In America, which won the 2000 US National Book Award for fiction - a collection of stories, several plays, and six books of essays, among them Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors. Her books are translated into thirty-two languages. In 2001 she was awarded the Jerusalem Prize for the body of her work, and in 2003 she received the Prince of Asturias Prize for Literature and the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade.

Abstract: Discussing in personal and cultural terms the values of reading, and examining what may be lost as society turns towards CD-ROM, hypertext and audio books, the critic Sven Birkerts, whose essays and reviews have appeared in "The New York Times Book Review", "The Atlantic" and "Harper's", offers a defence of the place of reading and the printed word in the face of rapid technological advances. He argues that we are living in a state of intellectual emergency - an emergency caused by our willingness to embrace new technologies at the expense of the printed word. As we rush to get on-line, as we make the transition from book to screen, we are turning against some of the core premises of humanization. The printed page and the circuit-driven information technologies are not related - for Birkerts they represent fundamentally opposed forces, and in their inevitable confrontation our deepest values will be tested.
