. Hannah Arendt, On Revolution (2006a: 49) [W]hat occurred in the eighteenth century in some Western countries … was a different phenomenon having perhaps a wider impact than the new morality; this was nothing less than the entry of life into history.

 196 11 Foucault, confession, and Donne Joel M. Dodson This chapter reconsiders Michel Foucault’s critique of confession in order to examine, in slightly broader yet more methodological terms, what exactly we mean by negotiating ‘confessional’ conflict in late Reformation English literature. My aim is to use Foucault to re-​think Foucault:  to read Foucault’s later lectures on the ‘care of the self ’ as an alternate model for historicizing doctrinal affiliation in late Tudor and early Stuart literature rather than the penal or penitential vocabulary elaborated

What is 'Gothic'?
Robert Miles

influential The Literature of Terror ( 1980 ). Punter’s reading of the historical importance of the late eighteenth century – as a period witnessing significant developments in the formation of the modern self -echoes the traditional view of Romanticism as an epiphenomenon of the modern. Michel Foucault’s similar periodization of the late eighteenth century – where a series of

demanding, like Hirshfield’s speaker, and inclined to say nothing. Let me attempt, in other words, to think the reticences and resistances within transfiguration. I want to think these things both with and against the form and content of some of Michel Foucault’s lectures from 1980 at the Collège de France. These lectures’ characterization of early Christian monastic practice, and specifically of monastic discretio , as a production of truth seems to impose upon its texts a mode of speaking which is not their own, a kind of univocal speech where these texts may, in

Introduction: understanding bioprecarity This chapter elaborates the notion of bioprecarity as it is utilized in this volume by drawing on three theoretical concepts that have not been ‘thought together’ before. They are intimate labour as discussed in Boris and Parreñas’ work ( 2010 ); bios , as understood in Michel Foucault’s writings ( 2008 ); and precarity as originally developed in France in the 1970s, then taken up by Judith Butler ( 2004 ) in the context of war, terrorism, survival and grievable lives and popularized in relation to new forms of

A decade ago, just out of graduate school, I published an article exploring questions of the politics of representation in jazz criticism in which I argued that, in some contexts, ‘the death of the author’ actually promotes the abuse of cultural power that Michel Foucault objected to in his 1969 lecture Qu’est-ce qu’un auteur? , later published
