Revolt, She Said

"May '68 in France expressed a fundamental version of freedom: not freedom to succeed, but freedom to revolt. Political revolutions ultimately betray revolt because they cease to question themselves.

I've been in the middle of this book for about 4 years. And it's tiny. That being said, it's very interesting. For a while I was really into learning more about situationism and the spectacle, and that is when I bought this...
The book contains a series of discussions/interviews with Kristeva about her impressions of and experiences during May 68, focusing on the issue of revolt, what it is, why we need it, etc.

eh. the format of the book is interviews, which doesn't allow kristeva to go into very much depth, which is disappointing. it also ends up jumping from issue to issue, ranging from france and frenchness to sex, utopian movements, and sadism (which, btw, she pathologizes at one point). still interesting at times, but altogether, not exactly a page turner or mind bender.

I haven't read any of Kristeva's theory, but this book was an a great entre into how she talks about her work and ideas. I appreciated it for that and enjoyed the conversational style. It's got me excited about reading more of her work and theory.
