In this companion volume to The Tree of Meaning, Robert Bringhurst collects twenty essays under the subversive principle that ?everything is related to everything else.” His studies build upon this sense of basic connection, and involve the work of poets, musicians, and philosophers as varied as Ezra Pound, John Thompson, Don McKay, Empedokles, Parmenides, Aristotle, Skaay, Plato, George Clutesi, Elizabeth Nyman, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Dennis Lee, and Glenn Gould. The value Bringhurst places on the process of translation, the dialogue between one language and another, and the sheer experience of witnessing translation by reading and hearing poems, stories, and songs in their original languages is another strong presence in this collection. Accompanying the English narrative are passages in Tlingit, Haida, Chinese, Greek, German, Cree, and Russian, for readers who want to find the patterns and taste some of the vocabulary for themselves, for those interested in meeting the languages partway.

Dancing Jacobins

Since independence from Spain, a trope has remained pervasive in Latin America’s republican imaginary: that of an endless antagonism pitting civilization against barbarism as irreconcilable poles within which a nation’s life unfolds. This book apprehends that trope not just as the phantasmatic projection of postcolonial elites fearful of the popular sectors but also as a symptom of a stubborn historical predicament: the cyclical insistence with which the subaltern populations menacingly return to the nation’s public spaces in the form of crowds. Focused on Venezuela but relevant to the rest of Latin America, and drawing on a rich theoretical literature including authors like Derrida, Foucault, Lacoue-Labarthe, Nancy, Lyotard, Laclau, Taussig, and others, Dancing Jacobins is a genealogical investigation of the intrinsically populist “monumental governmentality” that in response to this predicament began to take shape in that nation at the time of independence. Informed by a Bolivarian political theology, the nation’s representatives, or “dancing Jacobins,” recursively draw on the repertoire of busts, portraits, and equestrian statues of national heroes scattered across Venezuela in a montage of monuments and dancing—or universal and particular. They monumentalize themselves on the stage of the polity as a ponderously statuesque yet occasionally riotous reflection of the nation’s general will. To this day, the nervous oscillation between crowds and peoplehood intrinsic to this form of government has inflected the republic’s institutions and constructs, from the sovereign “people” to the nation’s heroic imaginary, its constitutional texts, representative figures, parliamentary structures, and, not least, its army. Through this movement of collection and dispersion, these institutions are at all times haunted and imbued from within by the crowds they otherwise set out to mold, enframe, and address.

The aim of this book is to give some indication of A. V. Coton's conception of his role as a dance critic and of the range of his activity, in time, place and interest. No writer on dance has set himself a wider brief. The writings from which this anthology has been selected extend over thirty years, in which he contrived to see nearly everything worth seeing in Europe and America in the sphere of theatrical dance. He wrote about it in three different styles which conditioned the presentation of his views: the daily press, with its limitations of space and tyrannical deadline; the periodical press, which allows of more detailed analysis, more developed themes, and frequently the chance of proof-corrections; and in books, the most satisfying medium of all. In each style, however, his guiding principles and criteria remained firmly established. Three men dominate the text: Fokine, whose 'five principles' Coton wholeheartedly approved of as a measuring stick; and Antony Tudor and Kurt Jooss, each of whom, in the 1930s, provided him with personal revelations as to the scope and power of, respectively, Classical Ballet and Modern Dance. Because of the importance of this trio of choreo-graphic creators to Coton's thought and reactions, they are represented at length. Coton's concern with the native scene in Britain was always close, and his analyses of the historical development of English ballet, and of its strength and weakness, remain full of stimulating, and occasionally controversial, convictions.

Often, the decade of the 1920s has been stereotyped with such labels as “The Roaring Twenties,” “The Jazz Age,” or “The Lost Generation.” Historical perspective has forced reevaluation of this decade. Articles in this collection are presented in the most definitive anthology dealing with 1920s America. The contributors have put aside stereotypes to offer a valuable critique of the American dream during a time of major crises. Dancing Fools and Weary Blues also presents its readers a picture of the continual redemption and revitalization of that dream, and reasserts its basic democratic values.
