9781937658052: Sisyphus, Outdone.: Theatres of the Catastrophal

Here, Nathanaël engages the catastrophal—photographic, translative, architectural—calling to the scene a discrepant combinatory of voices including Ingeborg Bachmann, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Dmitri Shostakovich, to insist on the relational and seismic state of language and the image.

About the Author:

NATHANAňL (formerly known as Nathalie Stephens) is the author of a score of books written in English or French, including We Press Ourselves Plainly and Absence Where As (Claude Cahun and the Unopened Book). She lives in Chicago.

Review:

“Troubling borders separating disciplines, dividing countries, and distinguishing words, Nathanaël’s texts borrow meticulously and programmatically from other authors, literalizing the Barthesian ‘tissue of quotations’ as they also draw incestuously from, and thus plicate, her own oeuvre. Each writing is thus in itself, and in relation to Nathanaël’s larger corpus, beset by the calculated vertigo of écriture, as Nathanaël enacts obsessive returns to a cluster of characteristic concerns, each time with a change of lens that profoundly informs her renewed scrutiny and its consequences.”—Judith Goldman, Postmodern Culture
