Reseña del editor:

"Authorialism is like a chronic and progressive disease of modernity. It leads art to the impasse of a totally reflected and 'rationalized' practice. The author as project-maker assumed to be at the origin of the work has now replaced the genius; the author as strategist squanders every margin of nonreflective activity conceded to artistic practice; the writer, reduced to an eye that observes itself, is caught in the cage of her own self-observation."--from Chapter 1In The Empty Cage, the highly regarded Italian literary critic Carla Benedetti explores the question: What is an author? Expanding Foucault's arguments beyond literary discourse into art, film, performance, and industrial design, Benedetti maintains that the author carries out a historical function, integrally connected to the modern system of artistic production and of esthetic evaluation. In the modern period, she says, any object can be considered a work of art, on the supposition that it has been produced by an author. Her book, far from being an attempt to reclaim authorial intention as essential, proposes an original theory that shows how the author, in the form of author-images and even logos, has become an important link in the modern system of artistic communication. Discussing authors who include Borges, John Cage, Calvino, Duchamp, Proust, and Cindy Sherman, Benedetti addresses the principal aesthetic problems of modernity, showing how late modernity approached and refashioned them. She suggests that the author has become metaphorically a diagnostic expression of all of modernity's maladies, that part of a sick organism into which all symptoms of the illness converge. Thus she sees the author's death (and with it postmodernity as a whole) as a great "work of mourning" produced by a tired Western modernity; a mourning for what it no longer believes to be possible: that is, to grow and to generate.

Críticas:

"With her usual combination of heartfelt engagement and analytical objectivity, Carla Benedetti maintains the best tradition of Italian 'militant criticism' in this thought-provoking study of the so-called 'death of the author.' Benedetti argues that, far from being dead, the author in contemporary artistic practice is at the origin of both theoretical and material valorizations of cultural work, be it in the field of literature, film, performance, or even industrial design. Instead of functioning as an energizing force, however, authorialism has resulted, in Benedetti's view, in a debilitating self-consciousness that denies art's capacity for genuine innovation, surprise, and growth. This is, finally, a new way of looking at the passage from modernity to postmodernity, from 'illness' to 'mourning, ' from the author as project-maker to the author as strategist, entrapped in a cage of solipsism. Not all readers will agree with the view unfolded in this polemical work, but many, I would wager, will find much excellent fuel for firing up once more their desire to debate the still unresolved issues of what 'postness' is all about."--Rebecca West, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures; Committee on Cinema and Media Studies; and Director, the Center for Gender Studies, The University of Chicago
