Stirner, anarchy, subjectivity and the art of living
John Moore

3 John Moore Lived poetry: Stirner, anarchy, subjectivity and the art of living1 Introduction At the heart of the new anarchism(s) there lies a concern with developing a whole new way of being in and acting upon the world.2 Contemporary revolutionary anarchism is not merely interested in effecting changes in socioeconomic relations or dismantling the State, but in developing an entire art of living, which is simultaneously anti-authoritarian, anti-ideological and antipolitical. The development of a distinctively anarchist savoir-vivre is a profoundly

4 The will to live Standing in the rubble In November 2013, the roof of the supermarket Maxima collapsed in the Zolitūde suburb of Riga, amidst Soviet-era apartment blocks and post-1991 high-rises. Fifty-four people died under the falling slabs of concrete. Police started an investigation, and a public debate ensued about the widespread use of low-quality building materials to reduce costs, about suspicious links between the construction industry and political parties, as well as about the costs of the post-2008 austerity. The opposition party, which was in

(Comment posted on’s Comment is Free discussion forum) Much has been written in the past 20 years about the representation of ‘distant others’ in the news media. It was seen in the previous chapter that for Silverstone the issue of a ‘proper distance’ between audiences and mediated others is crucial because it involves the representation of humans to other humans.

Inter-war fascistisation
Wendy Ugolini

Chapter Two ‘Long live Mussolini and Fascismo’: inter-war fascistisation In the insightful publication, Enemies Within, exploring wartime internment in Canada, Australia and Britain, historians identify a critical failure within the Italian community, in particular its leadership, to address fully their Fascist past.1 They argue that recent attempts by community leaders in Canada to gain an apology for internment has led to the ‘glossing over’ of the Fascist history of Italian diasporic communities.2 Principe, specifically, argues that the behaviour of the

T WO PRODUCTIONS OF STAGE adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein emerged in the UK in the spring of 2011, both of which made explicit reference to their liveness in performance. The National Theatre in London production was based upon Nick Dear’s stage adaptation of the novel and was directed by celebrated filmmaker, Danny Boyle. It featured acclaimed popular television and film actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. As part of its theatrical run, the production was commissioned, on a couple of occasions, to be

We lived at last in a community with a noble common purpose, and the experience was not only novel but exhilarating. We had a glimpse then of what life might be if men and women freely dedicated themselves, not to their appetites and prejudices

13 The lived narrative versus the learned narrative Linden MacIntyre I think fiction is a very serious thing, that while it is fiction, it is also a revelation of truth, or facts. John McGahern1 In public readings, panels and other forms of chatter I’ve grown accustomed to the question: is it difficult changing gears (sometimes the analogy refers to hats) from journalist to novelist and do I often get confused and find myself bogged down by fact when writing fiction and tempted, in my ‘factual’ reporting, to make stuff up. The answer, as a rule: I have only one

Mourning and Melancholia in Female Gothic, 1780–1800
Angela Wright

Wright explores how novels by Eliza Fenwick, Sophia Lee, Maria Roche, and Ann Radcliffe critique, via their fascination with portraiture, eighteenth-century consumerism. Wright argues that this engagement with image-making indicates late eighteenth century concerns with fashion, opulence and consumerism which become relocated in women‘s Gothic writing through the correlated issues of female insanity, desire and loss.

James Baldwin in Conversation with Fritz J. Raddatz (1978)
Gianna Zocco

This is the first English-language publication of an interview with James Baldwin conducted by the German writer, editor, and journalist Fritz J. Raddatz in 1978 at Baldwin’s house in St. Paul-de-Vence. In the same year, it was published in German in the weekly newspaper Die Zeit, as well as in a book of Raddatz’s conversations with international writers, and—in Italian translation—in the newspaper La Repubblica. The interview covers various topics characteristic of Baldwin’s interests at the time—among them his thoughts about Jimmy Carter’s presidency, his reasons for planning to return to the United States, his disillusionment after the series of murders of black civil rights activists in the 1960s and 1970s, and the role of love and sexuality in his literary writings. A special emphasis lies on the discussion of possible parallels between Nazi Germany and U.S. racism, with Baldwin most prominently likening the whole city of New York to a concentration camp. Due to copyright reasons, this reprint is based on an English translation of the edited version published in German. A one-hour tape recording of the original English conversation between Raddatz and Baldwin is accessible at the German literary archive in Marbach.

Catherine Davies

12 •• How to live a colonial soldier’s life Catherine Davies Historical biography is not a genre generally favoured in Spain, and the personal memoirs of the principal protagonists of events deemed worthy of historical record (for example, of Spanish army officers involved in war and government) have not been mined as profitably as they might have been. It is self-evident that individual people make history, singly or collectively, within the rational or irrational constraints of a given historical context. As Robert I. Rotberg has argued, ‘Social forces are
