Moliére, Tartuffe, Acte IV, Scene 5
I bought the CIEP’s guide to the TCF exam which doesn’t sound momentous but I know that, having taken this initial step, having spent 27$ on this (returning to France for a Master’s), as I don’t enjoy wasting money I’m now committed to this plan. Woo Campus France applications this winter!
Facebook knows too much.
Et maintenant on va jouer ‘C’est qui le bogosse qui se trouve situé stratégiquement derrière Yann?’
Jacques Lacan, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis (W. W. Norton, 1981) 212.
When Franck in L’inconnu du lac first has sex with Michel he, past acceptance, expects to die at its end. He searches, asking Is that it? It is not that this film is a ‘gay thriller’, it cannot be disavowed as endemic to some subculture; here the aberrant part is the representative: it is that here what is at stake in the sexual relationship as such is precisely made explicit, brought out into open unequivocalness. Bataille: Erotics as always an erotics of death. Desire turned drive.
