Modelling the Self Lecture Series: 'The Colossal Fabric’s Form”: Remodelling Identity, History, and Memory in Byron'

Tuesday, 27 November 2007
18:15 to 19:30
Elvet Riverside 140
Dr. Mark Sandy (Durham University) In this lecture which reads Byron's personal and historical reflections in 'Manfred' and 'Childe Harold's Pilgrimage' through Nietzsche's meditations on memory and forgetting, poetic acts of remembrance are explored as moments of wilful erasure. Central to Nietzsche's thought is how single moments are forgotten only to be unwillingly recalled at some future historical point. History is the foster-child of both remembrance and forgetfulness. A desire to forget biography and history, paradoxically, produces a capacity to remember.
