Hyperion Mallarmé

HyperionPix

A new issue of Hyperion, the first of a two-part issue on Mallarmé curated by guest editor Kari Hukkila, was released at the end of last year. It features new texts written expressly for this occasion, as well as the first-ever English translation of Alain Badiou’s Perroquet text from 1986, “Est-il exact que toute pensée émet un coup de dés?” Badiou reads Mallarmé’s Coup de dés as “the greatest theoretical text that exists on the conditions for thinking the event.”

 Featured essayists include: Robert Boncardo, Alain Badiou, Jean-Claude Milner, Liesl Yamaguchi, Jean-Nicolas Illouz, Jean-Francois Puff, Kuisma Korhonen, and Mary Shaw. The issue closes with Claude Mouchard’s dialogic long poems, as harrowing as they are soft-spoken. The second issue is due out in late February or early March. 

Access the issue here.

All previous issues of Hyperion are available on ISSUU.COM. Hyperion was founded by Rainer J. Hanshe and Mark Daniel Cohen and is edited by Hanshe & Erika Mihálycsa and other guest and contributing editors.
