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 l. a. 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 l. a. vieillesse su monde ».

from the book's cover:
The worry haunting the anonymous author in
Peter Handke’s new novel is the terror of los-
ing touch with language and of now not being
able to cross on with both his paintings or his
life. After a morning at his desk—where,
for him, a sentence positioned to paper is an occasion
and the most beneficial connection to the world—he
ventures out for a walk.
The writer’s afternoon odyssey takes him
from the middle of the unnamed eu
city to its outskirts, to a peripheral area
comparable to the fringe of goals or the
frontiers of language. He is alternately re-
lieved to be out on the earth, the place the 1st
snow is falling and the early-December
light is variously mirrored, and vexed: in an
outlying bar, a inebriated places the author, in ef
fect, on trial. What is the enterprise of the
writer? Is there any such company in this
century? Who can declare to be an artist and
to have made a position for himself in the
world? yet in this day the author additionally has
an appointment with certainly one of his translators.
An older guy, he was once himself as soon as a author,
and this day is satisfied accurately simply because he is
no longer one. A translator, he says, has the
certainty that he's needed.

This deceptively easy, but hugely not easy and unique novella reaffirms Handke's preeminence at the overseas literary scene. One December afternoon in an unidentified German urban, the anonymous narrator, a author, takes a stroll and displays at the perilous presumption of his vocation and his terror on the tenuousness of his touch with concept. each one note is a lifeline, conjuring up the realm and magically reformulating it. yet while, the author and his textual content pressure on the limits of language and realizing. Believing that the author is dispossessed in 20th-century tradition, the narrator is thrown again upon himself to confront the nullity of his discourse; his younger religion in his calling has collapsed into disenchantment and worry that through taking flight from society to jot down, he has de-legitimized his voice. but the narrator concludes with the confirmation to "continue to paintings the main ephemeral of fabrics, my breath," with no reduction or concealment of literature's drained props, hence reassuring Handke's admirers that the writer will proceed to tax and thrill them together with his Mallarmean opacities.

The day is wealthy for the nameless author who's the protagonist of this publication. within the morning he grapples with the Beckettian problem, giving form to not anything with the tissue of tender language, consistently conscious that the ultimate could be the finish of his skill to specific. A web page, might be , after which comes the giddy present of an afternoon's stroll in the course of the urban. statement and instinct are this writer's instruments as he recharges himself with the event of lifestyles. The simplicity of snow and flora provides technique to the complexity of the "Gin Mill" crowd and a disagreement with the Translator. Handke is a strikingly proficient Austrian author who, during this novel, makes a speciality of the method of writing. This pithy textual content is both very important for writers and readers seeing that its eminently available research of creativity leads either towards a cognizance in their universal want for adventure. whereas different writers have exhaustingly did not clarify the intricacies of this soft artistic technique, Handke succeeds with trendy simplicity.

In postmodernity, the periphery as the Other (of the centre) both asks for legitimation for its own accounts of modernity and forces the centre to see The Case of Argentina and Greece | 35 itself “through the prism” of the periphery. The historical practice of the project of modernity in peripheral countries reveals not only the heterogeneity and hybridity inherent in modernities produced within the periphery but it also makes us consider that European and North Atlantic “archetypal” modernities are not themselves rigid and homogeneous but products of syncretist processes whereby cultures constitute themselves.
Hence, in order to understand the notion of syncretism in Borges, Piglia, Kalokyris and Kyriakidis and value the literary and ideological alternatives that their aesthetics have offered in two countries where a politically engaged literature prevailed for the most part of the twentieth century, first we need to consider the complexity of Argentina’s and Greece’s “peripheral” modernities and postmodernities. Centre and Periphery For Jürgen Habermas, the project of modernity has been founded on the Enlightenment belief that the exercise of critical reason and scientific method can lead to a greater understanding and control of nature, society and human psyche.
Nonetheless, considering the postmodern as something that always precedes the modern, Lyotard effectively detects a conceivable yet not representable sublime also within postmodern aesthetics. Notwithstanding that Lyotard denies the existence of any master narratives which claim to present universal truths, he does not entirely deny the existence of the sublime. It is precisely therein that lies the fundamental difference between Lyotard and other contemporary theorists like Jameson (1985, 1991), Alex Honneth (1985), Steven Connor (1989), Nancy Fraser and Linda J.
