There is a deep short-circuit produced when music and the writ- ten word collide. Frank Zappa—a sharp ear, if ever there was—used to give a lot of written information about his records in his album sleeves. Yes, militancy is also our ally. If we want to read reality, we must hear it. What they say is what matters more than what they said.

Let us remember, not commemorate, that she quotes from Walter Benjamin. A pity that we put together this volume without an essay articulating the resistance powers of poetry—non-ictional writing—as seen from the pastoral one of us has actually written an in-your-face pastoral novel to the hip-hop modes.

The character Marisol sells fake LSD to schoolmates for whom being seen taking the drug is perhaps more important than the supposed physical efects. This theatrical blindness reaches absurd heights when a buyer feigns being high to the extent that he leaps from the top of a building and kills himself, for which non-drug- induced death Marisol goes to prison, thus implicating the criminal justice system in prosecuting a ictional crime and non-ictional death.

Perhaps most telling in this episode is how Marisol casually takes no responsibility for the beliefs and actions of her buyers, which sheds a disturbing light on the way in which hateful and divisive political discourse or talking-head commen- tary —most of it ictional—is distanced from concrete incidences of hate speech and hate crimes in contemporary society. More suggestive, these ironical and often caustic commentaries on politicians and news personalities are now appearing in the news itself, as is the case of a February 22, New York Times article, which focuses on the distinct ways in which Stephan Colbert and Jimmy Fallon have handled the unpredictability and incessant ictions and lies produced by Trump and his administration.

The Baroque is proto-republican, Souto states. Yes, there are still the Pow- ers that be, which, for instance, ban the reading of anonymous writing; but there it is, an anonymous subject as the subject of almost modernity: the picaresque subject, for instance. Far from escaping the immanent, the irst medialogy is a veritable machine of immanence: it lays the embryo of citizenship. Immanence is thought of by Souto in a sense developed by Merleau-Pon- ty and Deleuze: a de-personalization of experience, a discovery and critical analysis of reality i.

Each layer of masking is, paradoxically, a layer re- moved in the process of self-discovery. Zombie sovereignty—the opposite of anonymous sovereignty—is tragic, ironic even: zombie sovereign subjects retain enough memory of what has been taken away from them, but know that they can never recover it the terabytes of computer memory, one could add, are too many for any merciful Lethe river to handle.

The dialectics of the Baroque are equally brought to the forefront in both Medialogies and the diferent articles in this volume. No sight of something good to hope for: only doom. Can this be simply our own blindness? Souto aptly adds a coda to his essay. Could we be glimpsing that dialectical counterpoint to the obvious Dark Side? The good ight for truth, that is, as evidenced by another myth: Edward R. Murrow, the valiant knight who single-hand- edly brought down the also single-handed evil of Joseph McCarthy. What Childers brings to the fore is how these attempts to resuscitate a nebulous, tenuous, Broadwayesque Chivalric Age lack precisely the one element that Cervantes uses as his main weapon: irony, or distance.

Murrow himself is comparable not to Don Quixote, but to Cervantes. His was not the feeble lance with which to pierce the armor of the dragon or giant , but the full power of the medium of television itself.

The simulacrum of apotheosis of the individ- ual as hero imposes itself as the perfect antidote to the real empowerment of people. American exceptionalism is not exceptional. At the heart of this minor strategy, Childers, like some of us, puts humor, or at least mockery. The image is of a prisoner of war who self-consciously traces, but never escapes, myriad institutional and symbolic enclosures, be they inancial, familial, juridical, or aesthetic.

The reo casts a disruptive and corrective shadow on the dominant received portrait of Cer- vantes as a virile and lettered soldier who attacks what is portrayed by early and late modern critics as the empty spectacle of honor and the excessive po- litical violence of the Spanish Baroque. What Schmidt makes apparent, in oth- er words, is that Cervantes has often been recruited into a transhistorical efort to frame Spain ever more tightly within the so-called Black Legend, rather than being recognized as a irst order European theorist and critic of moder- nity and its colonialist foundations.

It also allows her to build a robust conceptual bridge between early and late modern fantasies of individual honor and free- dom in order to reveal how they imprison individuals within repressive and isolating ideological fundamentalisms. And then he gives his friend Peralta a manuscript to read, in which dogs speak and witches rule the world. The Colloquium is a novella framed by another novella, and yet it comes out to frame the entire collection partially: Cervantes would never replace a totalitar- ian frame with another totalitarian frame. It seems fair to ask, however, whether we might return to Kant and what appears to be a quasi-fundamentalist impulse in his notion of aesthetic judgment: knowing whether I may say that something is beautiful has nothing in- trinsically to do with the interest I may or may not demonstrate in its ex- istence.

This volume, then, has been conceived and put together within the estab- lished parameters of a series of volumes called Hispanic Issues. Or is it? How can Nazism not be a Jewish issue? How can colonialism not be an issue of the colonized subjects? That in itself makes the issue Hispanic. But bracketing the issue at the other end, we ind now that Hispanics are singled out with perhaps only Muslims as companions in otherness as the danger to American greatness. Could it be that we are, indeed, dangerous? Could it be that we, Hispanics or Hispanic-lovers Hispanists —perhaps out of sheer habit with the incessant Ba- roques that have been—can actually read reality in a troublesome, inassimilable way?

This is, of course, a volume edited by two individuals, both Hispanists one Hispanic, one not. It revolves around Medialogies, a book also written by two Hispanists one Hispanic, one not. And it contains the contributions of Ameri- can Hispanists some Hispanic, some not. It is full of b. She quit the class.

She was a Muslim student of Moroccan descent. From diferent experiences because we invented the monster or be- cause we never experienced its full strength , it may very well be that Trump has had just the right instinct for identifying the most dangerous enemies.

But, of course, iction—and, with it, the reading of iction—and reality—with the reading of reality—have this tremendous thing in common: they tend toward the half-truth, or, from another angle, they tend to veil half of the truth. Lewis Black is not a good candidate to be the patron saint of b.

But possessing the war machine is not enough. But, alas, do we even know what to do? Doing may itself be counterproductive, as Zizek and others have argued, because the inlated monster feeds precisely on such action. Ours is an evolved speech act, perhaps inlated from speech, to writing, to pub- lish-or-perish. Can we delate it? Perhaps we can. We still have the classroom. We can do for our students what many upper-class parents who work in and for Silicon Valley are doing for their children: send them to top-notch schools that ofer, as the ultimate distinction, computer-free courses.

We can actually talk, speak in classrooms; many of us adhere to the Socratic method, as it should be. It is in the cracks among the many conlicting views ex- pressed by the contributors to this volume that the basis for action past diagno- sis can be found. The moment we exclude interruption from discourse, we exit the domain of Logos proper, and step into the threshold of media. Still, one cannot simply make the notion disappear that we have come back to an age that is darker than the Renaissance or the Baroque, and darker than the Middle Ages of, say, Romanesque abbeys, Gothic cathedrals, Dante, Chaucer, or Juan Ruiz.

All of these comparisons, and not just the ones that compare apples to oranges, but also even the ones that Medialogies neatly undertakes between apples and apples between medialogies , are risky, and one must ine-tune the terms of comparison if one wants them to be more than shortcuts of con- venience. One possible advantage of using—as a weapon, if you like—the New Dark Ages trope in this discussion can be the analogy between our loss of culture and that of the fabled Fall of the Roman Empire into the hands of the Barbarians.

We can use that analogical mode of the New Dark Ages to see our role in them. Perhaps we are a current Boethius or Isidore, or the guardians of the remains of what was, in our universities yes, they are the new monaster- ies, and we are the new monks. But here is the problem: our monastery is the Corporate University. If we are to be the salvaging monks, we must begin by re-inventing monasticism, even monkhood perhaps, by being pre-Benedictine, pre- or post- ora et labora, by living on a pillar for years.

We should try to become pre-Benedictine or para-Benedictine for the same reason that we should try to become pre-Socratic or para-Socratic. The triumph of that enormous efort in preservation always had a malignant force behind it. The Benedictine scriptorium is the predecessor of the printing press. But inlation is the key word here, and inlation happened with the expansion of mercantile Europe. The printed book had to become the fetish; its virtuality transferred a million times into a million screens of screens.

So perhaps our duty is to dim the lights. In a respite of darkness we may—just possibly—glimpse what was and is behind that blinding light. Plato had it half right: from the cavern, we see but the shadows projected by a light always behind us. But he was only half right because he forgot to add that brightening the ire would not solve anything: it would simply deepen the chasm, make darkness thicker and shadows more pronounced. More Light! Or maybe we turn of the spotlights, which create as many shadows as focal points of intensity, and turn on the house lights, so that spectators and actors inhabit and negotiate a more transparent space.

For Latour, such a project requires changing the emphasis of the relation from value to values, as in institutional values. If we have moved beyond Truth Politics to Power Politics, then the deciphering and framing techniques we teach our students would have to ground their methodology in identiiable values. We could start with things like the trans- parent negotiation of meaning, the importance of dialogue, and respect for the other.
