Example text

The clearest example is Lancelot himself. What constitutes the Lancelot-affect, the charisma of his name and his superiority, is not a measurable difference of Lancelot’s emotions and abilities from those of other knights. Galehaut is notably similar in these respects, yet his affect is quite different. The affect of any character, while being absolutely particular, resists measurement, analysis or restatement; for the major figures at least, we are called to marvel at its plenitude and concentration.

Characters are a mystery to themselves as much as to others; human voluntarism has only a restricted and often ironic role. 26 In contrast to the clergie and engin that characterize the works of Chrétien and his admirers, and the (ironized) emphasis in their works on rationalism and on scholastic analysis, the prose Lancelot and works like it cultivate a mixture of stark declaration and equally stark inarticulacy:27 Et la roine est venue en ses chambres et fu avec lui Galehout et Lionials et la dame de Maloaut; si font trop grant duel ensamble et dist la roine a Galehout: ‘Don ne m’a bien trahi vostre compains?

Names and concepts are mere conventions bestowed by groups of people for convenience’s sake. 31 The sense of God’s participation having receded, Jay argues, nominalism has increasingly celebrated a heroic human inventiveness which exercises itself upon a malleable nature. Sartre’s ‘instrumental’ world could be this myth’s sovereign fiction, testifying to man’s quasi-divine powers. Jay tracks efforts to re-enchant modern Western culture, although not by reintroducing a divinity. He returns to the basic nominalist tenets which assert that all objects are particular and concrete, and charts their development through certain strands of modernist visual art, exemplified by Marcel Duchamp’s readymades.
