Trying to Say the Whole Thing

At the same time, there should be a Wittgensteinian striving towards some impossible whole, complete understanding. Only then can the work function honestly and therapeutically, that is, to clarify and liberate.

This study assesses the implications of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s philosophy for autobiographical writing, putting him in conversation with texts (fiction and nonfiction) that actively resist the act of writing about one’s life. Chapter One traces the development of Wittgenstein’s philosophy, from the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus’ limits of rational language (and the mystical silence beyond) to the ground-level “album” of ordinary language games in Philosophical Investigations. Can Wittgenstein’s professed inability to bring order to the latter—arguably an inevitable consequence of language games’ endless proliferation—also be applied to writing about life, especially given the conspicuous autobiographical silence of Wittgenstein, whose planned autobiography never materialized? Chapter Two outlines how in Samuel Beckett’s Molloy, traditional narratives of journey and procreation find their undoing through what Beckett calls “efficient misuse” of language—a strategy that mimics his own oeuvre’s autographical mode. The third chapter takes up Meša Selimović’s Death and the Dervish, where a first-person account meant to untangle devolves into an amorphous narrative in which tangles, hallucinations, and fragments all become part of the search for a “human” language. Whereas the two novels enact an inexorable unraveling, the two nonfiction works examined in the last chapter, Bernadette Mayer’s Memory and Irena Vrkljan’s Marina; or, About Biography, foreground the issue of language and memory, offering alternatives to the limitations imposed by habit and inherited hierarchical traditions. Mayer explores what Wittgenstein might call memory experiences, exposing the many ways that memory works as a language event, while Vrkljan uses memory as a space to bring together lives in a collective “biography of words,” where Wittgenstein’s aspect-seeing serves a crucial function. Finally, this dissertation argues for an acknowledgement—much like Wittgenstein’s in the prefaces to his two major works—of certain language problems as essential aspects of the autobiographical task. At the same time, there should be a Wittgensteinian striving towards some impossible whole, complete understanding. Only then can the work function honestly and therapeutically, that is, to clarify and liberate.

An unusual, witty anthology of love stories selected by Ali Smith, Kasia Boddy and Sarah Wood. Love means never having to say you're sorry. No, love is in the air. No, love is the sweetest thing. No, it's soft as an easy chair. No, it's a stranger in an open car. No, it's a many-splendoured thing. No, it's the drug. No, it's like a butterfly. Oh, let's call the whole thing off. Love stories don't always involve hearts and flowers and walks in the park. This sparkling collection of the world's greatest love quarrels, from Chekhov to Colette, from D. H. Lawrence to Jhumpa Lahiri, features love stories for every mood and occasion. Here are new lovers testing the ground, cosy couples enjoying a quiet squabble before bedtime, and exes intent on picking up where they left off. Often love quarrels start with trivial matters, such as a bride's new hat in Dorothy Parker's 'Here We Are' or a choice of bedtime book in Jackie Kay's 'You Go When You Can No Longer Stay'. But it doesn't usually take long for the stakes to be raised. Love is a risky business ... ALI SMITH was born in Inverness in 1962 and lives in Cambridge. She is the author of Like (1997); Other Stories And Other Stories (1999); Hotel World (2001), which was shortlisted for both the Orange Prize and the Booker Prize; The Whole Stories and Other Stories (2003) and The Accidental, published by Hamish Hamilton in 2005. Ali Smith also writes for the Guardian, the Scotsman and the TLS. KASIA BODDY is a senior lecturer in English at UCL. She is the author of Boxing: A Cultural History (2008) and co-editor (with Ali Smith & Sarah Wood) of Brilliant Careers: The Virago Book of Twentieth-Century Fiction (2000); she has contributed an introduction to the Penguin Modern Classics edition of Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. SARAH WOOD is an artist, filmmaker and film curator.
