The Torah can be made to yield whatever meaning its interpreters like to assign to it. Text by Zoe Beloff, Arne De Boever, Mark Fisher, et al. Thus for moderns to write in "Italian" would be, they con- tended, as if Cicero and Vergil had written in the speech of the lower classes of Rome. For the positive task of avoiding the reversal of Enlightenment, reconstructing the rational content of modernity is not enough, since the issue is not to affirm its universalism, but its self-critical and emancipatory capacity.

It has been long recognized that man bears the unique faculty of language bearer. It involves the ability to see, not merely to look. There are apparently two views of representation here, and of the nature of 'art': art represents, or art uncovers. The flat, unreadable space of the screen seems to summon up, in the first instance, the cinema itself and the essential elements of light and dark out of which, potentially, recognisable forms and meanings may emerge.

Aristotle's hamartia or "flaw," therefore, is not necessarily wrongdoing, much less moral weakness: it may be simply a matter of being a strong character in an exposed position, like Cordelia.

The configuration of ingredients in a portrait-in-process may be altered prior to completion or else left incomplete. In the field of New-Testament criticism the call "back to tradition" has begun to be heeded, and has been endorsed by such authorities as Harnack and Deissmann. The grotesque, the ab- normal, the horrible, now dominate: Dante in poetry, the gar- Victor Hugo 89 goyles of the cathedrals in stone. This takes place in present day Tokyo, Japan where the lives of several individuals with unique personalities and hidden symbolism unfold through out one night.

The friend who phones to invite Gaspard to La Rochelle to buy an eight-track tape-recorder helps Gaspard sail away from romantic complications, just as Henri (Féodor Atkine) does in Rohmer’s Pauline à la plage (1983).7 Like the first four of Rohmer’s Comédies et proverbes (1981–7), Conte d’été ends as it began, on the jetty. The central motif with which Frazer deals is the archetype of crucifixion and resurrection, specifically the myths describing the "killing of the divine king."

Cultural Identities in Canadian Literature. Maxwell, Anne. "Post-Colonial Histories and Identities: Negotiating the Subjects of 'Social Change' and 'Postmodern Theory'." Henry William Weber. "Introductory Dissertation." Such a figure is pathetic, and pathos, though it seems a gentler and more relaxed mood than tragedy, is even more terrifying. Richard Wright, Claude McKay, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Bertold Brecht were deeply influenced by Marxist and socialist theories of the day, and much of this type of reflection is evident in their writings of the time.

Whether the context is Greek, Christian, or undefined, tragedy seems to lead up to an epiphany of law, of that which is and must be. With this formulation Horkheimer condemned "traditional" theorists for producing works that fail to question power, domination, and the status quo, thus building on Gramsci's critique of the role of intellectuals in processes of domination.
