Whatever's gone down the drain, including the thirty-nine additional pupils who gifted their bodies, “Aaah! ” to be able to the sound out regarding knife, “my forearms, my personal breast, my hips ;-( knife” (Bald Voz, 74), the Professor furthermore appears to be planning on selected psychophysical effects of expressive behavior of which, simply by approach of punk, funk, and even heavy metal, are right now very common on MTV, when on the particular theoretical degree he is very much outdoing Roland Barthes on “the materials of the tone of voice, ” through which, when words and phrases really speak—that materialization involving language by way associated with the body, it is fleshiness or tactility—what heard is definitely “the tongue, the particular glottis, the teeth, the mucous membranes, the nose, ” whose meaning is some sort of seduction from which “signifiance blows up, ” erotically more and apart from words, getting into efficiency “not this soul nevertheless jouissance. ”9 It's achievable, as well, to help see the Professor's oral lesson not only by the twisted opportunities involving his head, but throughout the terms utilized by Foucault writing of Deleuze, his / her theater of phantasms, which functions at the limits regarding bodies, but from systems, way too, sticking to them, nonetheless sticking it in their eyes as well, cutting all of them open and multiplying their particular floors, as a web-site of metaphysics for the particular disillusioning of phantasms; within short, a space involving concept “never hallowed by a perception, ” the “theatrum philosophicum” as the “epidermic take up of perversity. ”10 As long as the metaphysics is vocalized in the “phantasmaphysics” of sounds at this skin (“Theatrum” 172), down below the eyelids, up often the nostrils, or in typically the dirt below the fingernails, what exactly it is not, like Barthes writes about the membranous voice, is some fetishism of breathing, where from the affect(ation) of relaxation nearly all techniques begin, bringing in to performance, as via a secretly mystical centre, some deep emotional real truth or imitation of the soul.Metaphysics, like Artaud suggests (and Deleuze is usually indebted to him), may with the sonorous streaming come in through this pores, nevertheless only while escaping, within the vibrations, frications, ovulations, sibilations, the repressive simulation or “tyranny involving meaning” (Barthes 185). Because for the tyranny inside the Lessons, true, the libidinous soundings of the linguistic hypothesis there—that “all the words of all dialects ;-( are always the same” (65)—takes a hallucinatory training to the deathly pedagogy of the knife, which, however the Pupil feels that, voluptuously, in every portion of her entire body, will be something else again than Artaud's rudeness or Barthes's conception of voice, whose truth is to become hallucinated (“Grain” 184). Which is not precisely the condition of mind of the particular Smiths and Martins, within the vociferous fero city involving The Bald Soprano, their vain pursuit of symbolism, where concluding lesson is about often the runaway signifiers, not this specific that, not that this, growing over the stage: “It's not necessarily that way, it's over in this case, it's not of which way, it's around right here, it's not that way, it can over here, it can not doing this, it's over here! ” (42).Yet wherever it is or might be, it, this indeterminate referent through the anarchy of that all, “a work of art, ” according to Ionesco—unembarrassed by simply the phrase, which he / she uses generally, honorifically, without much slippage—“is not a disordered set of associations. It's a arranged series of associations around a theme. A good work of art can be primarily a construction, ”11 nevertheless it may get pushed to the position regarding paroxysm, “where the particular source regarding tragedy sits. ”12 This tragic, very, has become dubious inside our time, as noteworthy disempowering, starting with typically the critique by Brecht and transferring by way connected with poststructuralism into feminism, the new historicism, queer principle, and the gendered, étnico, together with ethnic politics involving social studies. In any case, when Ionesco echoes of art like some sort of construction he does not suggest by that what exactly, by means of Foucault and others, we now have come to think of as “social construction, ” as if the project have been composed by the linking of discursive situations or perhaps, in the nameless effectiveness of language, as some sort of kind of accretion of record.The textual content may end up being, as Barthes mentioned within “The Demise from the Publisher, ” a multiplex place of diverse writings, none of them of them original, nevertheless somewhat “a tissue involving estimates drawn from the innumerable centers of culture” (Image 146); but if Ionesco speaks regarding the work he leaves zero doubt that he is—as significantly as William Faulkner with Yoknapatawpha County—the single founder of the web-site of multiplicity; and in the event that points need to turn out to be deciphered or disentangled by the market that's because “the common relations of conversation, parody, contestation” targeted, as Barthes says, within the reader or the audience (148), has been created and perpetrated by the inventive powers of often the artist, who has through these powers the capability for you to construct. This is so even when the construction resembles, while on the frenzied stop of The particular Bald Soprano or perhaps around the equally crazy set up of chairs—when the Aged Female says, “I'm certainly not a device, you realize. Who are all these men and women? ” (Chairs 137)—the deterritorialized or nomadic space of the Thousand Plateaus, conceived simply by Deleuze and Guattari like an assemblage, a great “economy of violence” within which “speed is extra to shift, ”13 around what they call often the war machine. Which may possibly, in fact, be a outline of the accelerating constructions of Ionesco's theatre, a good exacerbation of rivure, outwardly irrational and denuded associated with all sense, as the enmity of the heroes emerges, as though it ended up genetic, from banality of its beginnings. c
