The Iliad. Selected Poems of Sylvia Plath. In its free movement between languages, time periods, national traditions, and genres; in its interrogation of translation; and in its borrowing of tools, methods, and strategies of interpretation from sister disciplines like history and ethnology, The Poetics of Otherness is an exemplary instance of comparative literature and a demonstration of the value and necessity of cultivating theoretical perspectives that exceed monolingualism and the nationalization of literary study. Otherness appears in many guises in this book.

In addition to the otherness of persons, cultures, and languages, Hart appeals to the otherness of time and place as he explores the poetics of geography and history. Perhaps the most important aspect of the exploration of otherness lies in the distinction between positive and negative otherness.

This distinction allows Hart to address the difference between the negative othering by which Nazi propaganda demonized Jews and the positive othering through which literary study locates human voices silenced by violence and discrimination. Yet the distinction proves inadequate to explain the subtleties of some of the representations Hart studies. Showing Rating details.

  • Fernando's style helps the work to come to life so that many of the ideas he writes of are not only expressed as ink on paper as if our reading of the text had some form of direct access to the text , but are preformed through the very interaction between the text and the reader - the text constantly attempts to write on your body, to leave a piece of it with you as much as you leave a piece of you with it, and Fernando's prose accomplishes this by constantly veiling and unveiling, not showing us glimpses of other possibilities yet to be actualized and shutting them off in our face, but rather by reminding us of the specters of these possibilities that constantly haunt our own reading of his text.

    The first two chapters of the book along with the introduction and preface offer a very concise introduction to much of Fernando's thought Because is not every engagement with an other a reading? If you haven't read The Suicide Bomber and Her Gift of Death I highly recommend you read the first two chapters of this work before reading it.

    The following four Chapters broken up into two sections offer performative applications of Fernando's thought that simultaneously build on his theory - at the risk of saying too much it's best that you read these not really knowing what to expect going in especially the last chapter as that wouldn't really allow for the form of constructive thinking Fernando hopes to inspire through his performance. Despite the work's short length it will make you want to come back to it and reread it again and again, and not only to come back to it, but even go back to reread every text you've read with a new frame of mind, to allow every text you've read to be read again so it reads into you as much as you read into it, so you can once again feel the struggle between reader and text and yet again come out changed for it.

    It is in this blindness that the third-the Christian-that ruptures the binary opposition of Jew-Gentile is born Saul had no idea that his moment of blindness, of notseeing, of not-knowing-his illegitimate leap of faith-would lead to the birth of a new term, a new possibility. Only in this way might something new occur. I have attempted to lay out a process of what happens whenever one reads; by showing that it is an interplay between the reader and the text in the negotiated third, in which every instance of reading is a different instance and every meaning or interpretation chosen is a pure choice based on nothing but madness, chosen in blindness , I am left with a situation in which all that can be said is that every time one reads, what happens is reading itself, a reading of both the text and the reader her- or himself.

    In this sense, all that is left for me to do is to demonstrate reading itself" hide spoiler ] Nashat Nimer marked it as to-read Feb 15, Lily marked it as to-read Aug 19, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
