Sample text

M. Foucault, The Archaeology of Knowledge) I want, by exploring the issues which Foucault points to here, to open up a set of questions concerning reading, especially popular reading, and the determinations within which it is produced. Although my primary concern is with the reading of written texts, especially fictions, I intend the term ‘‘reading’’ in the more general sense of referring to the means and mechanisms whereby all texts – literary, filmic and televisual, fictional or otherwise – may be ‘productively activated’ during what is traditionally, and inadequately, thought of as the process of their consumption or reception.

Their ontological weight is weak compared with that of the historical forces which prepare the judgements of empirical subjects for their eventual rendezvous with those of Man. Foucault throws some light on this matter in contrasting the functioning of utopian representations within the classical and the modern epistemes. Whereas, in the classical period, utopias functioned as fantasies of origins, the development of historical systems of thought in the nineteenth century effects a transformation in the temporal orientation of utopic thought.

Ginzburg ultimately tracks his quarry down to the sphere of the intertextual. He finds his key to Menocchio’s reading of the Bible in the relations between two written cultures – the official Biblical culture of the Church and the fringes of the new intellectual humanism that reached him – and, beyond that, in the interaction, in Menocchio’s head, between these two written cultures and the orally transmitted under-culture of the Italian peasantry. Placed in this context, Menocchio’s fantastic cosmogeny is rendered intelligible: a materialist subversion of the Biblical myth of creation effected by reading the relations between Genesis and the intellectual humanism and materialism of Renaissance culture through the filter of the belly materialism, the cheese and worms materialism, of the oral culture of the peasantry.
