Synchronicity has been enveloping me. I saw “performativity of self” on the page of my book and nearly choked on my organic-fair-trade-so-you-can-feel-good-about-yourself coffee. I’ve been reading about/studying that concept since I was a sophomore in college, and continually touching upon it intellectually and spiritually. My interest can be divided into two general pairings: Shakespeare and Stanley Cavell, and Hegel and Marx.
What’s the point?
I’m reminded of two distinct Shakespeare passages dealing with the concept of the performativity of life.
The first, from Macbeth (act V scene V):
“She should have died hereafter.
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle.
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
