ONLINE ISSUE

Our November online issue features an interview with philosopher Simon Critchley – speaking on his recent obsession with ancient tragedy and how his work on that with Judith Butler and his wife, psychoanalyst Jamieson Webster, gave birth to a surprising new book on Hamlet. Also featured is Patrick Goddard's wry short film, Difficulties in Impression Management, exploring Goffman, dinner parties, pissing on toilet seats/toilet etiquette and the complexities of social mores. We're also running an essay by Orlando Reade on new historicism, the London riots and acts of dissent read through the paintings of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye; Isabella Maidment on indeterminacy and performance in the groundbreaking live work of artist Cally Spooner, with exclusive film excerpts; and a gallery of photographs by Patricia Niven with an accompanying essay on walking from writer JA Murrin. Also featured in this online issue are fiction by Aidan Cottrell Boyce and poetry from Simon Pomery.
