have been written from a mostly historical or sociological perspective.
But sport has not been established as an important sub-discipline in
literary and cultural studies, particularly in the long eighteenth
century. For centuries, sports have been organized, and competition has
been viewed as both ritual and recreation. But several important aspects

D. H. Lawrence once stated that it is hard to hear a new voice, as hard as
it is to listen to an unknown language. It is precisely around this analogy
that Lawrence’s claim becomes political. What is it that makes the spoken

unknown to others. Rather, the problem lies in not being understood or
heard despite shared language. Deleuze’s notion of minor literature becomes
the aegis for such thinking. Posited as a practice of politics, minor
literature seeks the conditions of possibility of becoming a nomad in
relation to one’s own language. This nomadic relation to the major language
