Alienation (Vefremdung) is an idea inextricably associated with the identify of twentieth-century German playwright Bertolt Brecht - with modernism, the avant-garde and Marxist idea. notwithstanding, as Phoebe von Held argues during this booklet, 'alienation' as a sociological and aesthetic notionavant l. a. lettre had already surfaced within the considered eighteenth-century French thinker and author Denis Diderot. This unique learn destabilizes the traditional knowing of alienation via a interpreting ofLe Paradoxe sur le comedien, Le Neveu de Rameau and different works by way of Diderot, beginning up new methods of interpretation and aesthetic practices. If alienation constitutes a old improvement for the Marxist Brecht, for Diderot it defines an existential situation. Brecht makes use of the alienation-effect to undermine a sort of naturalism in response to subjectivity, identity and phantasm; Diderot, against this, plunges the spectator into identity and phantasm, to provide a cultured of theatricality that's profoundly alienating and but is still anchored in subjectivity.
