Sample text

We may define the order of time as this purely formal distribution of the unequal in the function of a caesura’ (Deleuze 1994: 89). This caesura is the moment of the split of the subject and the instigation of an action. Deleuze’s main example of the caesura in time and the self is that experienced by Hamlet, when he says that the ‘time is out of joint’. At the crisis of a disruptive summons to action, the past takes on the characteristic of something that is ‘too big for me’. ‘In effect, there is always a time at which the imagined act is supposed “too big for me”.

History is like physics: a Joan of Arc effect, a Heliogabalus effect – all the names of history, and not the name of the father. (Deleuze and Guattari 1977: 86) Stories and Time The hallucination of the names of history may suggest a positive use of history, but the question remains: how can one write about history, whether as a historiographer or a novelist, and engage in fabulation, if indeed, fabulation is one with becoming, and if becoming is opposed to Chronos? What story, what fabula, can one tell that dispenses with chronology, or subordinates chronological narration to the eruption of the floating time of the untimely?

3 The French word récit, like the English word ‘story’, can be used to describe both true and false accounts of events. One can tell the true story, but one can also lie by ‘telling stories’, or creatively ‘make up stories’ to entertain, enlighten, astonish, and so on. In the films of Perrault and Rouch, the spoken word takes on a special significance. While the visual images of the films display the becoming of time that fuses before and after in an ongoing process, the voices of the speakers engage ‘the pure and simple function of fabulation’ as they ‘legend in flagrante delicto’ (Deleuze 1989: 150, translation modified).
