Talk, Talk, Talk by S. I. Salamensky
Book DescriptionBefore media, before the Internet...there was talk itself. Talk Talk Talk is an incisive, exhilarating collection of essays by some of the best thinkers -- and talkers -- of our time. These stellar contributors locate everyday chatter as the basis of a stunning range of artistic and cultural forms: from Antigone's speech-acts to Freud's "talking cure"; from seventeenth-century demon possession to the Marx Brothers' "immigrant talk"; literature, theatre, standup comedy, "ethnic" talk, technologized talk and much, much more. Contributors include: Homi Bhabha, Judith Butler, Stanley Cavell, Marjorie Garber, Sherry Turkle.
