The demands made of literary criticism by Roman Jakobson and the poet-linguists of the Moscow Language Circle now press on literary awareness — or should be felt to do so— with a new insistence. It’s so much older.

Such is Beckett’s dual control that he translates his own jokes by altering them, by finding in his alternative lan- guage an exact counterpart to the undertones, idiomatic associations, or social context of the original. You cannot paint or sing yourself into being good men; you must be good men before you can either paint or sing, and then the colour and sound will complete in you all that is best. Despite its references to the grammarians of Port Royal and to Humboldt, Chomskian linguistics is insistent, often polemically, on its innovative autonomy.

The concentrated strangeness of Borges’ repertoire makes for a certain preciousness, a rococo elaboration that can be geoge but also airless.

A year later, Labyrinths and Fictions appeared in English. I would argue that a good deal of poetry from Petrarch to Holderlin is “classical” in a very material sense: Speech is the systole and diastole of sus- tained being; it gives inward and outward proof. It may not be much, but, being so honest, it might well prove the best, most durable we have.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. In the absence of fantasia, without meaning more Than they are in the final finding of the stener, in the thing Itself, until, at last, the cry concerns no one at all. A world without words can be, and, where organic forms are present, must be, a world full of messages. What is one to make of her notation that Bagatelles pour un Massacre “brought on accusations of anti-semitism, pro- Nazi sentiment, and even collaboration”?


The same book or fragment may lead several lives; pieces go underground and reappear much later, subtly transmuted. Psychoanalysis extraterriotrial deal with neither. Precisely in the same way, man communicates reality to himself and to others in linguistic forms because he has been uniquely imprinted with the capacity and need to do so.

We do not know. The air is gray with theses: Critical commentaries on Borges, interviews with, memoirs about, special issues of quarterlies devoted to, editions of, pullulate. But how many own the editio princeps of El jardin de senderos que se bifurcan Sur, Buenos Aires, in which the tale first appeared? This theory is extraterritoral natural part of romantic historicism and extratertitorial nineteenth-century discovery of the shaping power of linguistic development.

Music, mathematics, and chess are in vital respects dy- namic acts of location. Act Without Words is to drama what Black on Black is to painting, a sgeiner of reductive logic. To which question the converse would be: Robert Escarpit, La Revolution du Livre Joyce’s employment at Berlitz and Nabokov’s residence in a Swiss hotel may come to stand as signs for the age.

Parading so openly, being so wastefully shared, our lives, and the language in which we experience them, go the more naked. The vision that emerges from the sum of Beckett’s writ- ings is narrow and repetitive. He wins over and extraterrittorial, double or nothing, his “queen appearing and slashing at the enemy like a great enraged beast.

He lives in Cambridge, England, See also: Within living memory, scores of ancient and elaborate languages have been snuffed out. Black won on that March afternoon. I reach my center, my mirror. I am neither competent nor extraterritofial to question their technical value and coherence. Equally important as, if not more so than, these transla- tions, mimes, canonic inversions, and pastiches of other writers— darting to and fro between Russian, French, Ger- man, English, and American— are Nabokov’s multilingual recastings of Extrateritorial.


On this entire question, transformational generative linguistics seems to be using evidence in a circular way. Dolphins pipe signals of warning or summons. That incorporation must be attempted, even where it will remain largely “imaged” or analogized, if we are to emerge from the drift and boredom extraterritorrial semi-literacy.


Ellison’s story has all the elements of a roman a clef.

They have to talk about it. But the issue is again a complex one. The Gift, Lolita, and Ada are tales of the erotic relations between speaker and speech and, more precisely, laments, often as formal and plangent as the funeral ora- tions of the baroque, for Nabokov’s separation from the one true beloved, “my Russian language. The analyst is a “translator into daylight.

The psychology of musical invention, as distinct from mere virtuosity of performance, is all but nonexistent. Solutions, be they of a discord, of an algebraic equation, or of a positional impasse, are achieved by a re-grouping, by a sequential reordering of individual units and unit-clusters notes, integers, rooks or pawns.

Without physiological corroboration, the Freudian account of personality, penetrating and suggestive as it is, might remain a brilliant piece of local, historically circumscribed observation.

As I stressed beforesuch systems do not constitute “language” and their use by modern man is, at every point, linguistically penetrated or “debased. For the extraterritorixl to become bi- or multi-lingual in the modern way, genuine shifts of sensibility and personal status had to occur.

No eBook available Amazon. I am equally troubled over the connections or lack of ”logical” connections between deep and innate structures. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. In my opinion, it is not only automata theory but the idealized image of an actual computer that underlies much extratsrritorial his vocabulary and of his images of the generative process. The monologues and stories appeared in Paris inbut at least one had already been published in a magazine.
