[UPDATE] Unstable states, mutable conditions

/ANGLES/, journal published by the SAES

Call for papers

There is a particular instability proper to the English-speaking world in which mutability seems to be of the essence, as when Shakespeare alternated sea and land in Sonnet 64:

When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the wat'ry main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store;
When I have seen such interchange of state,
Or state itself confounded to decay

The point is also made in a more explicitly political mode by Caliban in The Tempest, suggesting that the absolute of sovereignty is, in fact, contingent, reversible:
