Perpetual Passing Away: History as Eternal Catastrophe in Walter Benjamin (ACLA)

Brushing against the redemptive political and theological promise many critics discover in Walter Benjamin, our seminar will investigate the complex figuration of time across his early and later work. "History decays into images, not stories," he proposes in The Arcades Project, a complimentary insight to his earlier assertion in The Origin of German Tragic Drama, that allegory introduces "the decisive category of time" in contrast to the ontological promise that inheres in the symbolic mode. For Benjamin, allegory eschews any eschatological fulfillment wherein "destruction is idealized and . . . nature is fleetingly revealed in the light of redemption." Rather, allegory gathers its iconic significance in the worldly subjection to death.
