Non-existence qua non-existence and existence qua existence do not possess the properties of priority and posteriority
What Bhabha seeks (most urgently in his reading of Fanon) is a specific temporalisation of psychic and social spaces that makes the "enunciatory present of modernity disjunctive" (ibid: 239), a belatedness, neither anteriority nor posteriority
, neither before nor after, but a temporal rift at the heart of signification.
The dating of events enables us to identify a given event's anteriority or posteriority
relative to other events, such as the first contacts with an NGO and language courses taken by claimants which preceded their first jobs.
With the third series currently on repeats and season four due later this year, it saw Nesbitt go down in posterity - or is that posteriority
- when Adam Williams was called upon to stand naked in the street singing with a rose up his bottom, an image used for the US poster campaign to promote the series in America though, strangely, not here where he owns up to ITV having used a 'butt double'.
My intention is to submit to re-examination Rychner's view of the posteriority
and inferiority of AN fabliaux by comparison with continental versions; to attempt, in the light of this investigation, to establish some characteristic features of AN fabliaux and their distinction from northern French representatives of the genre; and finally to suggest that Geoffrey Chaucer's Merchant's Tale, unlike Chaucer's other fabliau-tales, was derived from an insular fabliau.
