About this product
- DescriptionThis book analyzes a range of texts that seek, in different ways, to represent the people. Ranciere approaches these texts as travel narratives or ethgraphies whose authors have traveled t to distant or exotic lands but across class lines. In this truly comparative study, he examines Wordsworth's poetry, the utopian discourse of the Saint-Simoniens, the correspondence and theater of Buchner, Claude Geux's Memoires d'un enfant de la Savoie, Michelet's theories of history, the prose and poetry of Rilke, and the performance of Ingrid Bergman in Rossellini's postwar film Europe 51. Ranciere examines the various forms of displacement that affect his subjects, enabling each to become foreign to the sites and trajectories commonly kwn as reality. He argues convincingly that the people have proper signification in the texts under consideration, instead, they function as points of reality upon which the voyager can drape a conceptual framework shaped by the circumstances t of the other, but of the self.
