Sample text

Outside of habit, things protrude as incomprehensible, absurd, meaningless, frivolous, uncanny, or strangely beautiful. Whether this involves a repudiation of the quotidian or a revivification of our attention to it is specific to each work. In Rilke’s novel, completed in 1910, the narrator engages in prolonged reflections on the relationship between the obtrusiveness of things and the possibility of ecstasis. The young Danish nobleman, Malte Laurids Brigge, 30 The Ecstatic Quotidian finds himself, as did the author, alone in Paris at the turn of the century.

The stubborn life of these rooms had not let itself be stomped out’’ [Das za¨he Leben dieser Zimmer hatte sich nicht zertreten lassen] (46–47; 485–86). What is important, he thinks, is the fact that he recognized them (43; 487). Here Malte does not mourn the lost significance of the now-torn down houses, rather he is fascinated by the walls’ present state of being, pockmarked by dilapidation, by the scars of their former quotidian functionality and their present disuse. They are a kind of objective correlative for the ambivalence of experiencing the world in its full obtrusiveness as its familiarity recedes.

On s’en sert, on les remet en place, on vit au milieu d’eux: ils sont utiles, rien de plus. Et moi, ils me touchent, c’est insupportable]. Thus Roquentin recognizes the existence of objects just as he is aware of his own existence. His own freedom is compromised; he writes of objects: ‘‘I am afraid of being in contact with them as though they were living beasts’’ [J’ai peur d’entrer en contact avec eux tout comme s’ils e´taient des beˆtes vivants] (Sartre 1964, 19; 1938, 23). The nausea, Roquentin’s ecstatic uncanniness, at first seems to come from the physical world.
