Cliché in the work of Samuel Beckett: stimulus or obstacle?

Je connais ces petites phrases qui n'ont l'air de rien
et qui, une fois admises, peuvent vous empester toute une langue.
Malone meurt

Bouche comme cousue fil blanc invisible
Bing

Cliché itself, the degenerative metaphor of everyday language, is, Beckett recognizes, expressive of fundamental desires, fears and truths

Modernism, Modernity, and Politics: Face-off or Interface? NeMLA (April 7-10, 2011), Rutgers University (deadline Sept. 27)

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), hosted by Rutgers U, New Brunswick, NJ

Although much has been written about the later personal politicization of a modernist such as Ezra Pound, critics have inadequately addressed the relationship between Anglo-American literary modernism and politics through an over-emphasis on the apolitical formal innovations of the movement: for instance, imagism in poetry or the stream-of-consciousness in fiction. Equally de-emphasized in critical discourse is the relationship between western literary modernism and non-western literary modernities, a relationship that invites exploration particularly due to the claims of cosmopolitanism made by the former. Although born in a Euro-centric context, western modernism had a far-reaching impact on contemporaneous Asian writers, for example.

Laurel Harris, CUNY Graduate Center

In her recent anthology _Gender in Modernism_, Bonnie Kime Scott opens the literary field to include disciplines previously left out of the modernist frame such as dance, painting, cinema, and the sciences. In doing so, Scott broadens the scope of modernism and, in particular, provides new angles of inquiry into the work of women literary modernists. This panel will further explore this interdisciplinary move, asking how, and to what effect, we might bring the insights of other disciplines to bear on questions of gender in literary modernism. How did visual, aural, and performative art forms influence the work of modernist women writers?
