Yeah But why can't someone else come along write their version of your story? This is what Kathy Acker was revolutionalistically suggesting by rewriting very badly Great Expectations The idea is that you put in a few jazz chords take out that tiresome riff and add a new one get rid of the sub plot about the neighbour's wife's suspicions that her son was a rent boy good god that was terrible increase the bpm by a little bit not too muchWell there is stuff like Pride Prejudice with Zombies but that's just silly I was thinking along the lines of re doing The Lovely Bones where she doesn't die so it's cheerful or rewriting Philip Roth novels so that the hero has great relationships with women and only has positive things to say about them but of course keep the same plot and characters That's important otherwise you might as well just write your own book Maybe it wouldn't work with books but it's completely normal in the world of pop songs In fact songwriters are disappointed if no one else does their stuff And the songwriters are artists but they don't go around saying the guitar break has to stay or every word of this song has to be sung in the same way by the same person every time How silly would it be if authors demanded the same printer is used every time their novel is printed Absurd So I'm uite excited about this I'm thinking of doing a version of We Need to Talk About Kevin in which they do actually talk about Kevin and they never buy him any archery lessons so he puts his talents to use elsewhere and becomes a pretty good banjo player He joins this little newgrass band they end up doing really well and one of their albums gets nominated for a Grammy but it doesn't win And nobody dies I think that's a much better version This is the most complex cryptic intellectual book I've ever read No kidding guys it really drove me up the wall Thank God it's very short 128 pages because I had to read it three times in a row to even start gathering my thoughts Even Calasso's works are vanilla in comparison with this cultural and emotional tour de force a hypertext riddle a Chinese box in short a literary challenge that utterly defeated and captivated me It's not only a book about books it's a book about the way literature allows us to define and restage our traumas by providing us with any sort of Doppelgänger Literature as a door a threshold or rather a tunnel through the overlapping strata of consciousness that progressively accumulate in any human biography This is indeed an autobiography; but this is Kathy Acker too Things can't be that simple when it comes to the greatest female po mo novelist praised by William Burroughs as one of his few heirs What she does here is an impressive work of deconstruction of the self by means of literary characters impersonating all her existential dramatis personæ all throughout the novel actually a bewildering mesmerising prose poetry pastiche revisited classics and avant garde works give shape to the author's memories and images of herself as a child young girl married woman stripper artist lover; desperate ecstatic successful derelict; tore apart by inner conflicts and desires that fuelled her creativity as a writer as well as a woman By continuously switching identity and genre the author becomes the epitome of the Unreliable Narrator of postmodern fiction Neither a novel nor a memoir then; in her own words this book is to be deciphered as a psychic map of the present therefore the future Yes deciphered Because the net of literary references is so intricate that only by googling racking my brains testing my poor knowledge and rereading the text over and over I managed not to get lost in it In fact this is possibly the best example of Kathy Acker's well known techniue a unicum in which stream of consciousness Burroughs' cut ups and deliberate plagiarism are inextricably entangled After her mother's suicide the author started to experience a frame Within this frame time was totally circular because I was being returned to my childhood traumas totally terrifying now because now these traumas are totally real there is no buffer of memoryTraumas and memory That's what Acker's work is about The first part of her tale aptly titled 'Plagiarism' is a mix of fractured recollections and excerpts from Pierre Guyotat's Eden Eden Eden one of the few books that really left me gaping Hard to discern between reality and fantasy when Dickens' Great Expectations hence the title Proust's 'Recherche' grotesue parodies of 80s sitcoms Jean Genet's dreamlike eroticism leak through the author's childhood memories a time in which she experienced ambivalent feelings of lovehate for her mother and the lack of a father born in a wealthy Jewish family the child was deprived of the father figure from the very beginning the man left long before Kathy's birth Both factors influenced the young girl's perception of human nature and relationships not to mention of her own place in that emotionally dry when not overtly hostile environment I have the image obsession I'm scum as she herself sums it up see also her first and probably toughest novel Blood and Guts in High School And She realizes that she is at the same time a little girl absolutely pure nothing wrong just what she wants and this unnameable dirt this thing This is not a possible situation This identity doesn't existBesides her two failed marriages all her relationships with both male and female partners are struggles between opposites in the couple's dynamics as well as in her own mind and soul In fact the sentimental and sexual dimensions of Acker's life converge in her experience as a stripperwhoremodel during which her physical and psychological masochism rape fantasies Freudian obsessions recurrent nightmares are almost exorcised by the sordid reality she lives in uite fittingly she also plunders Pauline Réage's Histoire d'O suivi de Retour à Roissy erotic slavery prostitution voluntary suspension of thought and will as a means to be loved by her men are perfectly embodied by the charming Ô and her baroue masochism Once again any attempt to discern between biography and symbolic imagery is utterly pointlessPart Two 'The Beginnings of Romance' is even emotionally charged In these pages Kathy analyses the passive part she's always willing to play in her love affairs either by submitting to psychological violence or acting as a catalyst for her men's mental issues Here's what she says about none other than Jackson Pollock I not only understood I understood and adored I would be the pillow he would kick the warm breast he could cry into open up to let all that infinite unstoppable mainly unbearable pain be alive I would not snap back I would be his allowed of exhibited pain so he could keep going That's why he loved meKeats' poem 'The Eve of St Agnes' is the counterpoint to the narration of an important transition in her troubled life just before she moves in with an artist her second husband? from now on she finds herself dealing with an entirely new burden of competition incompatibility erotic desire and sentimental idiosyncrasy La Fayette's La Princesse de Cléves is the literary alter ego she now identifies with By the way Acker's thoughts about art and creativity another recurrent subject in her work are strikingly deep and show a good deal of sensitivity with regards to the part an artist is supposed to play in modern society The description of the Seattle artistic élite is just hilariousSince the American culture allows only the material to be real those who want to do art unless they transfer their art into non art ie the making of commodities can't earn money and stay alive Almost every living artist who keeps on doing art has family money or at least one helpful sex partner There're few artists whose work this society desires for the country needs sone international propaganda and there's nothing as harmless to a materialist as formalist experimentation Well no doubt our narrator did find her way despite all her insecuritiesI'm going to tell you something The author of the work you are now reading is a scared little shit She's frightened forget what her life's like scared out of her wits she doesn't believe what she believesAnd it's Melville who speaks on her behalf about the pathos of the artistic adventure In the last part 'The End' the main literary reference she picks is the Latin poet Propertius and his 'Cynthia' Thus Acker dissects the dichotomy between love and sex affection and sensuality feelings and passion the woman keen on hedonism materialism eroticism a prostitute and a narcissistic individual and the poet socially committed intellectual craving devotion and faithfulness engage in a love dialogue that soon turns into a verbal assault in which all the repressed conflicts of the author's soul burst out in a final declaration of intentAs usual no answers or rather too many answers at the same time Because all we know for sure is that We shall define sexuality as that which can't be satisfied and therefore as that which transforms the personSo No plot fragmented narration narrative planes twisting and overlapping shameless plagiarism unconventional syntax experimental language explicit contents and imageryThe apotheosis of postmodern meta fiction a masterful example of antinovel a chaotic cluster of philosophical musings and digressions a monument to literary plagiarism as a weapon to destroy and rebuild literatureAll this in 128 pagesYes Ladies and Gents only 128 pages It's terrifyingGood grief I'd give both my kidneys to an organ trafficker to have half her genius I confess whenever I meet someone like Kathy Acker I fall hard and fast Tormented talented educated sexually ambivalent brilliant mentally unstable full of contradictions the sort of person I should avoid like the plague because they tend to awake some dormant aspects of my personality that really should stay where they belong And it invariably ends badly for me that is ButLike it or not one's nature always prevails over rationality That's why I just can't stay away from Acker and her violent poetic cathartic writing Once I get trapped in a cobweb I just can't wait to be eaten up by the spider Well it's okay for meWe don't ever have to be ashamed of feelings of tears for feelings are the rain upon the earth's blinding dust our own hard egotistic heartsHi Kathy A kiss wherever you are now We will meet in the place where there is no darkness Reason why I DNF'd after 11 pagesThe soldiers wake up stand up again tuck in their canvas shirttails suck in cheeks stained by tears dried by the steam from hot train rails rub their sex against the tires the trucks go down into a dry ford mow down a few rose bushes the sap mixes with disemboweled teenagers' blood on their knives' metal the soldiers' nailed boots cut down uproot nursery plantsEnough saidAnd before you ask no that was NOT the end of the sentence another 9 or so lines no I do NOT understand what is going on and no I did NOT forget the punctuation there IS NONE
