Mourning Sex : Performing Public Memories by Peggy Phelan (1997, Paperback)
Phelan is curi- ous to explore the possibility that "theatre and performance respond to a psychic need to rehearse for loss, and especially for death" p. In asking how one might produce and receive such performances, implicitly Phelan is investigating the efficacy of absence and absenting. Phelan uses performative writing to address absence. Using a range of rhetorical registers from the authoritatively analytic to the confes- sional and fable, Phelan "wantfs] this writing to enact the affective force of the performance event again" p. Phelan's ecumenical sense of "performance" as an event in real time that can be replayed under- writes her frequent shifts in topics ranging from classical painting to party political process; the most sustained attention to theatre addresses the context and controversy surrounding the exposure of footings re- maining from a long-buried theatre building, London's Rose.

Analyzing different instances of injured bodies, Peggy Phelan considers what sustained attention to the affective force of trauma might yield for critical theory. Advocating what she calls "performative writing", she creates an extraordinary fusion of critical and creative thinking which erodes the distinction between art and theory, fact and fiction. The bodies she examines here include Christ's, as represented in Caravaggio's painting The Incredulity of St Thomas , Anita Hill's and Clarence Thomas's bodies as they were performed during the Senate hearings, the disinterred body of the Rose Theatre, exemplary bodies reconstructed through psychoanalytic talking cures, and the filmic bodies created by Tom Joslin, Mark Massi, and Peter Friedman in Silverlake Life: The View From Here.
This new work by the highly-acclaimed author of Unmarked makes a stunning advance in performance theory in dialogue with psychoanalysis, queer theory, and cultural studies. About The Author.
