Literary writing, in contrast with writing as transcription, escapes the “world of representation.” This expression alludes to the world-as-it is, a world based on the reproduction of the same and the logic of identity. Representation recognizes the order of discourse, the word connected with power. Instead, literary writing offers the possibility of cultivating the artistic dimension of human semiosis, thus the escape from representation. The word of literary writing is objectified, indirect; it utters the impossibility of repeating the identical, the irreducibility of the other. In this framework, we examine Hamlet in re-writing and de-writing processes from Shakespeare, through Laforgue, to Bene (Artaud).

Representation and Literary Writing. From Identity to Alterity: Re-writing and De-writing Shakespeare with Laforgue and Bene

PETRILLI, Susan Angela

Abstract

Literary writing, in contrast with writing as transcription, escapes the “world of representation.” This expression alludes to the world-as-it is, a world based on the reproduction of the same and the logic of identity. Representation recognizes the order of discourse, the word connected with power. Instead, literary writing offers the possibility of cultivating the artistic dimension of human semiosis, thus the escape from representation. The word of literary writing is objectified, indirect; it utters the impossibility of repeating the identical, the irreducibility of the other. In this framework, we examine Hamlet in re-writing and de-writing processes from Shakespeare, through Laforgue, to Bene (Artaud).
