Quelques pensées à deux zorkmids sur l'homosexualité, la masculinité et la tolérance

Alors, est-ce une insulte? Quelles sont les paroles, au fait? Hum, c'est un comble que je cite cette chanson que je n'aime vraiment pas. Une insulte? Il faudra que j'en reparle plus longuement ici, d'ailleurs. Si des gens veulent aussi le voir et auraient envie d'y aller avec moi, qu'ils me contactent. C'est idiot, me disait un ami, autant fantasmer sur quelqu'un en train de se masturber que sur deux jumeaux qui baisent ensemble.

Certes, et pourtant! I had bought Mercedes Lackey's novel Brightly Burning some time ago, and only last week did I start reading it. Well, I do not recommend it: as a matter of fact, I stopped reading it halfway through. I heard about The Last Herald-Mage Trilogy because it is one of the rare heroic fantasy stories whose main character is gay though I mentioned another one in this 'blog ; now, quite independently of that, it is a very good story or three stories, I guess. On the other hand, Brightly Burning was simply boring.

Quelques pensées à deux zorkmids sur l'homosexualité, la masculinité et la tolérance

But things don't seem any bit plausible in a supposedly medieval setting: a good number of these characters of hers are simply modern college kids the intended readership? Hello, world? Worse than that, entire chapters are spent just painting the background, so to speak: this is acceptable when the background is of very special interest; but, with due respect to Mercedes Lackey, Valdemar or its Collegium isn't that fascinating. So I recommend against reading Brightly Burning and I won't go to the end. Il est caricatural sans faire peur. Ou de mes propres fantasmes. Well, I won't recommend this film: it's really devoid of interest.

Actually, the big problem is that it takes itself far too seriously. But in Tomb Raider , the comic element itself tries to be almost serious. And, consequently, it didn't work well, for me at least it didn't : who can seriously claim interest in a story of the quest for Pandora's box really, they had to dare!

Moreover, the bad guy isn't a success. He is grotesque without being frightening. And everyone knows that often a successful bad guy is the only way to save an adventure movie. All in all, what perhaps amused me most, and pleased me, was to learn that Lara Croft is English. Another thing that intrigues me is how one is supposed to consider Lara Croft herself. So, we have made progress since: women can be heroins on their own; but are they really for themselves, or are they simply there for the male heterosexual spectator's eye? After all, I'm not certain that Lara Croft, heroin replacing macho heros, is a real progress for feminism.

Superficially she might pass as a lesbian icon — except that the producers took great care in showing that she's not a lesbian. Not necessarily shown with such explicit scenes as when they try to prove to us that someone likes women, eh: it can be more discreet than that, maybe just hinted, but that it be at least conceivable, you know. And I mean the sort of blockbuster character who hits rough and saves the world from the claws of the despicably evil guy: not the technology geek who types at the speed of light and can decipher any code—nor the hobbit with really big eyes, full of courage, but who doesn't exactly play Lara Croft—or any of these roles which they sometimes consent of letting us believe that maybe they are ambiguous.

Hell, I'd even think it were good if the really bad guy could be gay, sometimes. But all right, it is utterly unimportant, really, and I'm surely victim of politically correct. Or of my own fantasies. Pourquoi n'a-t-on toujours pas interdit ces jouets bruyants, dangereux et vraiment stupides? Est-ce que je deviens vieux et grincheux? Bon, d'accord, je deviens effectivement vieux et grincheux. Comment expliquer cela? Quelqu'un peut me conseiller une marque je n'y connais rien, et pour cause?

Ils vont pisser? Ils admirent le Louvre? Hum, j'y crois moyennement. Malheureusement, il n'y a pas l'air d'avoir de photos de lui sur le Web. Enfin, je m'entends bien avec lui. Ah oui, et puis, sinon, il y a une jolie illustration de couverture. So, basically, what have I been up to, these days, while my Web site was bit rotting, until I started this 'blog? Well, working, for one thing. I'm sorry to say, my thesis is still not written, and it will be a couple of months yet before I can think of presenting it.

Its DOI is Currently, I'm working on cubing surfaces over C t , and I also spare a thought from time to time to trying to find an elementary proof which I'm sure is possible of the fact that smooth projective rationally connected varieties over C t always have a rational fact over C t this is a very impressive result by T. Graber, J. On the more personal side, for those who have asked I know, I never reply to email, it's maddening : I haven't found myself a boyfriend.

An obvious point, really, but some people seem to simply—miss it. Of course, I am also member of HBO , the similar organization for the Orsay campus: actually, I am a trustee and sometime treasurer of HBO , and one thing that has occupied me for the last months is the collaborative process of rewriting the organization's bylaws.

You can read the stories that were written and one of them is mine : overall, I thought they were very good. The chosen subject was The story must start with the death of a character. And it must end with the death of a character. The same one. I hope the results will be likewise interesting. This is definitely something I'll have to write about, some time. But I don't have the time now. In a definite sense, this is the best possible electoral system. I developped an implementation for it using the GNU Linear Programming Kit , because finding an optimal strategy in a zero-sum game is done by linear programming.

This is all quite fascinating. On the computer side of my life, I haven't programmed much these days. The stuff is still completely undocumented, anyway, so essentially it's usable only by me. What else? I had a renewal of interest in the Rubik's Cube I spent something like six hours one night remembering how to solve it, something I knew seven or eight years ago and had completely forgotten since ; but that probably won't last.

I also went to see a couple of movies in the last few months. I saw The Two Towers on the day it was released worldwide , , and I wasn't disappointed, although I thought maybe it lacked unity. Long Island Expressway , which I saw on , nothing like a box office buster, is a deeply moving story, and I recommend seeing it. On the next day I went to see Stupeur et Tremblement possibly still not released in the US , and I loved it: it is at once hilarious, beautiful and somehow terrifying.

Snowboarder , which I went to see on , is pretty much devoid of interest, although some of the snowboard figures were spectacular. Next I saw The Hours on , and I very much liked it: it is elegantly built, nicely filmed, and rather moving; plus, Nicole Kidman's award for her performance as Virgnia Woolf was well-deserved. The Life of David Gale , which I saw on , was a bit disappointing: I had guessed the ins and outs of the plot not even halfway through the movie, so the end was sort of spoilt for me.

And I plan on seeing Matrix Reloaded on the day of its release which is in Europe: contrary to Lord of the Rings which played the time zone difference by releasing a few hours earlier in Europe, Matrix decided to release a few hours later than in North America. I've done some reading, too. In particular, I discovered that I really liked Borges, and I think by now I've read just about all that he's written disappointingly little, I might add , in French translation. I tried to read David Copperfield , but I just couldn't get the hang of it: much as Balzac annoys me to no end, I find Dickens' habit of constantly straying off the subject a source of frustration; I expect to try again with A Tale of Two Cities.

Eh bien, d'abord, travailler. Son DOI est Et doit se terminer par la mort d'un personnage. Mais je n'ai pas le temps maintenant. Quoi d'autre? J'ai aussi lu. En ce moment je lis The Hours de Michael Cunningham. Je suis homosexuel. But even more than that, Alan deserves recognition for his contribution to humankind… It is thanks to men and women who were totally committed to fighting fascism, people like Alan Turing, that the horrors of the Holocaust and of total war are part of Europe's history and not Europe's present So on behalf of the British government, and all those who live freely thanks to Alan's work I am very proud to say: we're sorry, you deserved so much better.

Om Lenin's standpunt te begrijpen moet men het natuurlijk beschouwen in het kader van het dialectische en historische materialisme. Alleen het concrete en het practisch-gerichte is waardevol. Het menselijke streven naar vrijheid is dubbel : tegenover de krachten van de natuur ; binnen het kader van de maatschappij.

De mens staat vrij tegenover de natuurkrachten in die mate hij er niet door beheerst wordt maar ze aan zijn heerschappij onderwerpt. De mens is vrij als sociaal wezen in zoverre de geschiedenis niet hem maar integendeel hijzelf de geschiedenis bepaalt. Hierbij sluit het marxisme direct aan bij de stellingen van Bacon, Spinoza en Hegel. Bacon stelde vast, dat men de natuur maar beheersen kan door er aan te gehoorzamen. Spinoza beweerde, dat de bevrijding van de menselijke activiteit maar mogelijk is door de bewustwording van haar gebondenheid. De stelling van Hegel luidt, dat vrijheid inzicht is in de noodzakelijkheid.

De wetenschappelijke ontwikkeling bevestigt, dat de mens de natuur slechts gebieden kan in de mate waarin hij de wetmatigheid der natuurverschijnselen erkent. Het is een historische verworvenheid ; het resultaat van een strijd ; een proces in wording en niet een metaphysische definitie. De vrijmaking van de mens in het kader van de maatschappij doorliep een lange geschiedenis en is nog verre van voltooid. Voor elke historische etappe is de inhoud anders.

Deze wisselende inhoud wordt bepaald door de klassenverhoudingen van het moment. De trustificatie van het kapitalisme in zijn huidig stadium heeft de vrijheid gereduceerd tot een monopolie van een kleine groep financiemagnaten, en haar ontnomen aan de rest van de natie. Naarmate het bewustzijn van deze verhoudingen dieper doordringt in de hoofden van de massa, laait er een nieuwe strijd op ter verwezenlijking van de volgende historische etappe in het vrijheidsideaal.

Zolang wij leven in een maatschappij, die evolueert en revo- lutionneert doorheen min of meer scherpe klassentegenstellingen, kan er van vrijheid der gehele mensheid geen sprake zijn, bete-. Zolang de geschiedenis de resultante is van een klassenstrijd, resultante, die aan het doel van geen enkele der strijdende groepen volledig beantwoordt, kunnen wij niet zeggen, dat de mensheid haar geschiedenis beheerst. Naar de opvatting van Lenin worden juist deze voorwaarden in de kommunistische maatschappij verwezenlijkt.

In de klassenloze maatschappij zijn de inwendige tegenstellingen van belangen, die onze gemeenschap verscheuren, weggevallen, betekent de vrijheid van de enen niet langer de knechtschap van de anderen, is de vrijheid van de enen niet meer de grens maar de voorwaarde voor de vrijheid van allen. In deze maatschappij groeit voor de eerste maal in de geschiedenis — zonder enige dwingelandij, uit de maatschappelijke verhoudingen zelf — de eenheid van gedachte. Deze eensgezinde maatschappij kan rationeel en planmatig haar welvaart opvoeren. Zij heeft afgerekend met de ontzettende energieverspilling en destructie, waaronder wij vandaag leven.

De mensheid heeft nu haar eigen lot in handen. Engels noemt dat de sprong van het regime der fataliteit naar het regime der vrijheid, een vrijheid, die slechts mogelijk is nadat onzekerheid en armoe volkomen overwonnen werden.

They are those in which the suffering finds no vent in action; in which a continuous state of mental distress is prolonged, unrelieved by incident, hope or resistance; in which there is everything to be endured, nothing to be done.

In such situations there is inevitably something morbid, in the description of them something monotonous. When they occur in real life they are painful, not tragic; the representation of them in poetry is painful also. The appearance of the same word in Act 1, Scene II seems to have slipped critical attention. When then should it deserve our special attention in Hamlet?

Disparaged but Undeniably Great Hamlet has certainly incurred its fair share of adverse criticism, notably from Voltaire, Bernard Shaw and T. Eliot, but in one regard the play marks an unchallengeable achievement. Few other literary works have enriched the English language with such succinct and proverbial phrases as Hamlet has done.

In Hamlet the one pivotal and decisive action of the play, the killing of Polonius, is a gross and absurd blunder indeed, there is the view that Hamlet anticipates the Theatre of the Absurd in significant ways. Endorsing the opinion of another critic J. In fact, Shakespeare partially returned to the plot laid down by the original Danish story of Hamlet, likewise a son who avenges his father. This inversion or return to source entails an orientation to the future, the expectation of progress, if not a guarantee of its full achievement. At one level Hamlet revolves around the thwarting of a normal smooth transfer from one generation to the next.

Be that as it may, in Hamlet we witness the interpenetration of two historical planes with one reflecting the transition from paganism with its ethos of revenge to Christianity with its ethos of forgiveness while the other reflects the transition from medieval society to modern secularism. Perhaps this density of associations offers the main reason why Hamlet has been seen so variously as the champion of conflicting beliefs and ideologies, whether as a Catholic, a Puritan or modern agnostic. I feel no better point of departure is offered by these words: To be or not to be, that is the question Do these words pose a memorable yet isolated expression, or do they point to something of essential importance to the dramatic work in which they found?

As many a teacher of language will know, to be is in some ways the most problematic, irregular and infuriating of verbs. With other verbs, at least, the infinitive signals the formal unity of its various forms and manifestations irrespective of tense or declination. Be as a word occurs only in the infinitive, the imperative and subjunctive categories. Second, while verbs generally denote some form of action, to be denotes a state of existence with no necessary reference to any action at all. Some languages can apparently dispense with the verb altogether. In certain ways it poses an obvious antithesis of to do and it is only in the imperative that be is dependent on do.

This contrast finds a parallel in the basic issue that confronts us in Hamlet. Hamlet: Ay. It is common. Queen: If it be, Why seems it so particular with thee? Hamlet: Seems, madam! They are all actions that a man might play : But I have that within which passeth show.

Hamlet in Act I scene II evinces all the main traits of character that later come to the fore and manifests his basic attitudes to the world. These will undergo little qualitative change, even after he has cause to wrestle with the possibility that Claudius has killed his father. We find in this scene anticipations of what will more fully emerge in great soliloquy in Act III, Sc. In Act I Sc. II he already contemplates suicide while expressing countervailing fears instilled by religious teaching when saying in the soliloquy that ends this scene: Oh, that this too solid flesh would melt Thaw and resolve itself into a dew!

The reason is clear. This reference finds an odd parallel on the occasion when Hamlet hails Polonius as Jephthah, the biblical judge who kills his next of kin, in that case his own daughter. Few other plays outside Hamlet show how people advertently or inadvertently bring death and harm to their nearest and dearest, whether son, mother, sweetheart, uncle, niece or prospective brother-in-law, a fact which seems to symbolize the interdependence and inextricability of human relationships and hence the impossibility of surgically clean assassinations.

One of the more laudable motives that inhibit Hamlet from killing Claudius stems from this recognition. On the philosophical level Hamlet fears committing himself to action because the consequences of deeds are unpredictable and may well become the agents of evil. It will also be interesting to take some account of C. As we know from The Thousand and One Nights verbalizing can be a very effective way of stalling.

Besides, deferred action heightens suspense. What a Difference a Ghost Makes The entrance of the ghost occurring at a juncture set between the passages under consideration does not induce a fundamentally new attitude in Hamlet but at most serves as a catalyst effecting an acceleration of already existing trends.

The ghost makes Hamlet aware of the possibility that his father was killed by his own brother, but is a supernatural agent necessary as the only way of pointing to such a possibility? The evidence provided by a ghost was in any case suspect according to the tenets of Christian doctrine. The question as to whether the devil could assume the appearance of innocent mortals was a contentious issue that was still being hotly debated at the time of the notorious witch trials in Salem Massachusetts.

It intensifies already extant emotions and tensions to the point of making him even less capable of reasoned action. The experience of encountering a supernatural being serves only to produce feelings of headiness and frenzy of the kind that has induced many a disoriented and distracted young person to commit extrajudicial executions in the name of a higher authority. He is not an assured believer in the promise of eternal life according to the Christian creed though he nurtures lingering fears about the possible suffering of a departed soul in purgatory or hell.

However, as Hamlet himself admits, his linguistic-analytical approach to comprehending nonexistence must ultimately prove inconclusive as a human being can never directly confront death in his or her mind without dying in the process, only the thought of death or images for death derived from the mind of a living person.

Thus Hamlet tests the very limits of thought and its principal vehicle, language, particularly language that relies on the use of metaphors. Put simply, a metaphor arises when you say that something is what it is not. Rational metaphors such as similes state that one thing, person or entity is like another.

However, absolute or mystical metaphors state that one such thing, person, etc. The flowering of the theatre in Elizabethan England could be seen as a reaction to the vacuum left by the cessation of of medieval church ritual after the introduction of the Reformation. Hamlet and other persons surrounding him question not only the validity of words and their ability to represent truth but all signifiers in the domain of semiotics, of which language is only a part.

Perception and memory as representations of reality are not always be assumed to be reliable, a point already intimated in the first scene when Horatio and Marcellus discuss the sight of the ghost. The case of The Mousetrap demonstrates the relevance of drama to politics, leading some to conclude that this play within a play recalled the uproar caused by the performance of Richard II at the time of the Essex rebellion. To thine own self be true This above all ; to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Act I Sc. In philosophical terms, this means steering a middle course between the Scylla of solipsistic isolation and the Charybdis of a belief in the possibility of achieving absolute objectivity detached from morality and self interest. In Hamlet, such an insight evidently arrives too late to be of much practical assistance to the main players at the end of the drama. On the other hand, approaching death has a remarkable way of concentrating the mind and sharpening awareness of what essentially matters.

Romeo and Juliet at least points to a beneficial result of death for the surviving society. They acknowledge their mutual affinity as brothers in death. Horatio volunteers to kill himself too, but Hamlet lays upon him the charge of reporting to others the tragic events he has witnessed, doubtless for the sake of posterity.

Someone has to live on to report the tale, as Shakespeare himself well knew. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. We set off after dinner from Ellesmere. Clarkson went a short way with us, but turned back.

The wind was furious, and we thought we must have returned. We first rested in the large boathouse, then under a furze bush opposite Mr. Saw the plough going in the field. The wind seized our breath. The lake was rough. There was a boat by itself floating in the middle of the bay below Water Millock. We rested again in the Water Millock Lane.

The hawthorns are black and green, the birches here and there greenish, but there is yet more of purple to be seen on the twigs. We got over into a field to avoid some cows—people working. A few primroses by the roadside—woodsorrel flower, the anemone, scentless violets, strawberries, and that starry, yellow flower which Mrs. When we were in the woods beyond Gowbarrow Park we saw a few daffodils close to the water-side. We fancied that the sea had floated the seeds ashore, and that the little colony had so sprung up. But as we went along there were more and yet more; and at last, under the boughs of the trees, we saw that there was a long belt of them along the shore, about the breadth of a country turnpike road.

I never saw daffodils so beautiful. This wind blew directly over the lake to them. There was here and there a little knot, and a few stragglers higher up; but they were so few as not to disturb the simplicity, unity, and life of that one busy highway. We rested again and again. The bays were stormy, and we heard the waves at different distances, and in the middle of the water, like the sea All was cheerless and gloomy, so we faced the storm.

At Dobson's I was very kindly treated by a young woman. The landlady looked sour, but it is her way William was sitting by a good fire when I came downstairs. He soon made his way to the library, piled up in a corner of the window. He brought out a volume of Enfield's Speaker, another miscellany, and an odd volume of Congreve's plays. We had a glass of warm rum and water.

We enjoyed ourselves, and wished for Mary. It rained and blew, when we went to bed. Friday, 16th April Good Friday. The sun shone, the wind had passed away, the hills looked cheerful, the river was very bright as it flowed into the lake. The church rises up behind a little knot of rocks, the steeple not so high as an ordinary three-story house.

Trees in a row in the garden under the wall. The valley is at first broken by little woody knolls that make retiring places, fairy valleys in the vale, the river winds along under these hills, travelling, not in a bustle but not slowly, to the lake. We saw a fisherman in the flat meadow on the other side of the water.

He came towards us, and threw his line over the two-arched bridge. It is a bridge of a heavy construction, almost bending inwards in the middle, but it is grey, and there is a look of ancientry in the architecture of it that pleased me.
