(H/B) THE LIMITS OF ART
TWO ESSAYS
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0023

Tzvetan Todorov, one of Europe's leading intellectuals, explores the complex relations between art, politics, and ethics in the essays that make up The Limits of Art. In one essay, "Artists and Dictators," Todorov traces the intimate relationship between avant-garde art and radical politics in pre-revolutionary Russia, pre-fascist Italy, and pre-Nazi Germany. Todorov sets forth the radical idea that the project of totalitarian dictators and avant-garde artists actually "emerged from the same womb": both artists and dictators set out to mak...

(P/B) THREE PLAYS
PHILOCTETES, THE HORATIAN, MAUSER
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0014

Despite being widely acknowledged as one of the most important German dramatists since Bertolt Brecht, Heiner M?ller (1929-95) still remains relatively unknown in the English-speaking world. This collection of plays aims to change that, presenting new translations and opening up his work to a larger audience. Collected here are three of his plays-Philoctetes, The Horatian, and Mauser-whose poetic texts evidence the influence of Shakespeare, classical Greek tragedy, and avant-garde political theater on his works. Together they constitute wh...

(H/B) THE LITERARY LACAN
FROM LITERATURE TO "LITURATERRE" AND BEYOND
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0033

The relationship between literature and psychology is long and richly complex, and no more so than in the work of Jacques Lacan, the most controversial psychoanalyst since Freud. The Literary Lacan: From Literature to 'Lituraterre' and Beyond is dedicated to assessing Lacan's significant contribution to literary studies and the contribution, in turn, of literature to Lacanian psychoanalysis. The first essays in this collection provide close readings of Lacan's literature-related work, specifically his work on Hamlet, his homage to Marguer...

(H/B) TOMBE
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0030

"In 1968-69 I wanted to die, that is to say, stop living, being killed, but it was blocked on all sides," wrote Helene Cixous, esteemed French feminist, playwright, philosopher, literary critic and novelist.Instead of suicide, she began to dream of writing a tomb for herself. This tomb became a work that is a testament to Cixous' life and spirit and a secret book, the first book she ever authored. Originally written in 1970, Tombe is a Homerian recasting of Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis in the thickets of Central Park, a book Cixous provo...

(H/B) THE HOLOCAUST AS CULTURE
A CONVERSATION WITH IMRE KERTESZ
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0025

Hungarian Imre Kertesz was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2002 for 'writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history'. His conversation with literary historian Thomas Cooper that is presented here speaks specifically to this relationship between the personal and the historical. Kertesz recalls his childhood in Buchenwald and Auschwitz and as a writer living under the so-called soft dictatorship of communist Hungary. Reflecting on his experiences of the Holocaust and the S...

(H/B) THE ARRIERE-PAYS
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0032

Since the publication of his first book in 1953, Yves Bonnefoy has become one of the most important French poets of the postwar years. At last, we have the long-awaited English translation of Yves Bonnefoy's celebrated work, L'Arriere-pays, which takes us to the heart of his creative process and to the very core of his poetic spirit. In his poem, "The Convex Mirror," Bonnefoy writes: "Look at them down there, at that crossroads, / They seem to hesitate, then go on." The idea of the crossroads haunts Bonnefoy's work, as he is troubled by th...

(P/B) WHO SINGS THE NATION-STATE?
LANGUAGE, POLITICS, BELONGING
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0016

Who Sings the Nation-State brings together two of America's foremost critics and two of the most influential theorists of the last decade. Together, they explore the past, present and future of the state in a time of globalization. What is contained in a state has become ever more plural whilst the boundaries of a state have become ever more fluid. No longer does a state naturally come with a nation. In a world of migration and shifting allegiances - caused by cultural, economic, military and climatic change - the state is a more provision...

(P/B) 50 DRAWINGS TO MURDER MAGIC
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0035

A poet, philosopher, essayist, playwright, actor, and director, Antonin Artaud was a visionary writer and a major influence within and beyond the French avant-garde. A key text for understanding his thought and his appeal, 50 Drawings to Murder Magic is rooted in the nine years Artaud spent in mental asylums, struggling with schizophrenia and the demonic, persecutory visions it unleashed. Set down in a dozen exercise books written between 1946 and 1948, these pieces trace Artaud's struggle to escape a personal hell that extends far beyond ...

(H/B) A KIND OF TOUCHING BEAUTY
PHOTOGRAPHS OF AMERICA
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0026

Photographer Pedro Meyer is one of the pioneers of contemporary photography and was an early leader in its digital revolution. In A Kind of Touching Beauty his lens is focused on the American city, capturing its growth and transition through the 1980s and '90s. Alongside Meyer's striking images that distill the spirit of the city, the book presents essays by Jean-Paul Sartre. Originally published as part of The Aftermath of War and based upon Sartre's extended visit to America in 1945, the essays create a parallel journey with Meyer's phot...

(H/B) THE IMMATERIAL
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0021

In The Immaterial, French social philosopher Andre Gorz (1923-2007) argues, in his finely-tuned and polemical style, that the economic boom that accelerated in the 1990s and crashed so spectacularly in 2008 was based largely on an immaterial consumption of symbols and ideas, as capitalism tried to overcome the crisis of the formally industrial regime by throwing itself into a new, so-called knowledge economy. In this, the last full-length theoretical work Gorz completed before his death, he argues instead for the creation of a true knowled...

(H/B) A WINTER'S JOURNEY
FOUR CONVERSATIONS WITH MARIANNE BRAUSCH
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0017

French cultural theorist and urbanist Paul Virilio is best known for his writings on media, technology, and architecture. Gathered here in A Winter's Journey are four remarkable conversations in which Virilio and architectural writer Marianne Brausch look at a twentieth century characterized by enormous technological acceleration and by technocultural accidents of barbarism and horror. The dialogues in A Winter's Journey-structured loosely around the dates 1940, 1950, 1960, and 1980-chart Virilio's intimate intellectual biography, from his...

(H/B) THE TOTALITARIAN EXPERIENCE
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0024

The fall of the Berlin Wall marked the beginning of the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as many other communist totalitarian regimes around the world. But it would be naive to assume that this historic, symbolic event and its aftermath have completely rid the world of totalitarianism. Instead, we should ask, what is the totalitarian experience and how does it survive today? This is the imposing question raised by acclaimed philosopher and writer Tzvetan Todorov in this compact, highly personal essay. Here, he recounts his own experi...

(H/B) THE CHURCH AND THE KINGDOM
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0027

Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben is the rare writer whose ideas and works have a broad appeal across many fields, and his devoted fans are not just philosophers, but readers of political and legal theory, sociology, and literary criticism as well. In March 2009, Agamben was invited to speak in Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral in the presence of the Bishop of Paris and a number of other high-ranking church officials. His resulting speech, a stunningly lucid and provocative look at the history and state of the Church and its role in society, i...

(H/B) THE IDEA OF COMMUNISM
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0034

November 9, 2009, will mark twenty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the monumental event that signaled the beginning of the end of Communism in the former Soviet Union. Why was this collapse of Communism considered final, while the many failures of capitalism are considered temporary and episodic? In The Idea of Communism, Tariq Ali addresses this very question. The idea of Communism, argues Ali, was simple and noble. The Communist Manifesto, which advocated the creation of a society based on the principle of 'from each according t...

(H/B) DECEMBER
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0028

In the historic tradition of calendar stories and calendar illustrations, author and film director Alexander Kluge and celebrated visual artist Gerhard Richter have composed December, a collection of thirty-nine stories and thirty-nine snow-swept photographs for the darkest month of the year. In stories drawn from modern history and the contemporary moment, from mythology, and even from meteorology, Kluge toys as readily with time and space as he does with his characters. In the narrative entry for December 1931, Adolf Hitler avoids a car ...

(H/B) THE FATE OF RURAL HELL
ASCETICISM AND DESIRE IN BUDDHIST THAILAND
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0029

In 1975, when political scientist Benedict Anderson reached Wat Phai Rong Wua, a massive temple complex in rural Thailand conceived by Buddhist monk Luang Phor Khom, he felt he had wandered into a demented Disneyland. One of the world's most bizarre tourist attractions, Wat Phai Rong Wua was designed as a cautionary museum of sorts; its gruesome statues depict violent and torturous scenes that showcase what hell may be like. Over the next few decades, Anderson, who is best known for his work, Imagined Communities, found himself transfixed ...

(P/B) THE WASTE LAND
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0031

In Martin Rowson's The Waste Land, private detective Chris Marlowe is tasked with getting to the bottom of the most impenetrable of all modernist mysteries: namely T. S. Eliot's The Wasteland. Cunningly contrived, this irreverent graphic parody is inspired in equal parts by the classic modernist poem and by the American noir novels of Raymond Chandler. Marlowe, searching for his dead partner's killers, is lured into a web of murder, deceit, lust, despair and, of course, a frantic quest for the Holy Grail. Doped, duped, pistol-whipped, fram...

(H/B) CARNIVAL AND CANNIBAL
OR THE PLAY OF GLOBAL ANTAGONISM
Εκδότης: SEAGULL BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3805-0010

In Carnival and Cannibal, distinguished French philosopher Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) reflects on many of his most significant ideas concerning the significance of language and the relationship between the technological and the social. In this, one of his final works, Baudrillard identifies two fatal modes in which the world is currently engaged: the carnival and the cannibal, arguing essentially that contemporary society is transfixed by the spectacle of its own cultural creation and self-consumption. Revisiting his most important conce...
