about this item

Finding that the 21st century is playing out some of the same basic coordinates as the extraordinarily interesting and dynamic baroque period in Europe during the late 16th and 17th centuries, Roraback seeks to understand the present in light of its baroque-era ideological foundation stones and historical roots. Looking in turn at sociological-dramatic, literary-philosophical, and philosophical-psychoanalytic dimensions, he consider such topics as folds of desire's (dis)contents: Orson Welles, Lacan, and Shakespeare's King Lear (c. 1606); the monad of Deleuze's many-tiered high baroque Leibniz; neobaroque fingerprints: artistic authority, interpretation, and economic power/un-power of Finnegans Wake; and catastrophe, allegory, and the philosophical baroque: a quartet of Benjamin-Lacan and Joyce-Pynchon.
