Archipel et Nord by Claude Simon

By Claude Simon

Parus en 1974 dans les revues finlandaises, Archipel et Nord sont des poèmes en prose issus d'un voyage dans les airs, sur terre et sur mer. Archipel survole le « tissu de prés de bois de champs parallèles ». Les mots, les fragments de words sont éparpillés sur los angeles plage comme les îlots de « fin-land suo-mi : terre des marais ». Comme dans toute son œuvre, ici aussi Claude Simon est peintre. Les couleurs, les jeux de lumière, de nuages, le liquide et le végétal sont rendus avec une précision fluide. Sous le ventre de l"avion, c’est tout un monde de feu, de monstres issus des mythologies nordiques. Nord est une expérience existentielle, éclatée dans le poème, words interrompues par les croquis de villes, de maisons, rythmée de noms de lieux scandés avec jubilation : Sevettjärvi, Tcherksii, Anatyrle Baïkal… Un monde à l. a. Tchekhov qui renvoie pourtant à « comme quelque selected de sudiste », à cette Méditerranée d’où vient l’auteur. Qui avance sans bruit « dans l’enfance dans los angeles vieillesse su monde ».

Example text

Essays 166) Unlike Kant, who believed that reason overcomes the “antinomies” of the mind and imposes peace on warring philosophical schools, Althusser does not reduce philosophical schools to mere antinomies or demand that the schools accept a “rational” consensus opposing relativism or nominalism; rather, he maintains that, if philosophy is in the last instance class struggle at the level of theory, the politics which constitute philosophy bear on . . a quite different question: that of Economics and Theory 29 the ideological hegemony of the ruling class, whether it is a question of organizing it, strengthening it, defending it, or fighting against it.

Changed the form of the capitalist class organization from a private to a state capitalism. For example, in place of private boards of directors appropriating the surplus produced by industrial workers, the USSR substituted state officials as the appropriators. The mass of industrial workers . . produced a surplus appropriated by others and distributed by the latter to still others. (xii) Even though the USSR provided industrial and other workers the freedoms and benefits of a socialist society, these workers “produced a surplus appropriated” and distributed by others, so the USSR developed and maintained state capitalism.

Fredric Jameson accepts these parallels of Foucault and “the Althusserians” but considers them dialectical despite their critiques of Hegelian humanism. That is, they 44 Post-Marxist Theory both describe the evolution of incommensurable epistemes or combinations, and they both emphasize the gaps or ruptures whereby one displaces the other, rather than the continuities tying the new to the old (Modernity 78–79). As a result, they both show, Jameson says, the same weakness: in the Althusserian account, “the emergence of the new system remains as mythic and unaccountable, as uncaused and unprecedented, as in the case of Foucault’s epistemes” (Modernity 80).
