ABSTRACT

Situated at the intersection of postcolonial studies, affect studies, and narratology, this essay explores the emotional and discursive consequences of the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Through a close reading of Barry Unsworth's Pascali's Island (1980), it traces the process by which certain sociopolitical forces give rise to dominant “structures of feeling” within decolonising societies; and it proposes that these affective qualities also make their presence felt within literary discourse, where they penetrate even the deeper reaches of form, genre, and style. More specifically, I would like to suggest that the sudden decline of the Ottoman Empire, following the revolution of 1908, generates an overwhelming feeling of dissonance within Pascali's Island – and that this negative emotion ultimately infiltrates the discourse itself, creating a corresponding sense of disjuncture, “offishness”, and incongruity.

“感觉强度”:情感,间谍活动和奥斯曼帝国

摘要

本文位于后殖民研究,情感研究和叙事学的交汇处,探讨了奥斯曼帝国陷落的情感和话语后果。通过仔细阅读巴里·昂斯沃思(Barry Unsworth)的帕斯卡利岛Pascali's Island)(1980),可以追溯某些社会政治力量在非殖民化社会中形成主导的“感觉结构”的过程。并提出这些情感特质也使他们的存在在文学话语中得到了体现,甚至渗透到形式,体裁和风格的更深层次。更具体地说,我想指出的是,随着1908年革命,奥斯曼帝国的突然衰落在帕斯卡利岛上产生了压倒性的不和谐感 –这种消极情绪最终会渗透到话语本身,从而产生相应的分离感,“厌恶感”和不协调感。
