Example text

Bel cannot turn his back on sexuality. Instead, that sexuality turns into an imaginative manipulation of sensory data, a reordering of the real followed by a process of distillation that results in the “spirit” or the “art” being achieved. The process is at once physical and not, mental and not. The stimulus is there in the physical world and yet is filtered through the imaginative faculty, and the spiritual is only achieved through the auspices of the physical, as masturbation nulls the physical and releases the essential and spiritual.

When she was first glibly postulated as flesh, willfully distorted by him into the carnal detail, then she was conferred upon him in spirit, as spirit she was affirmed” (43). Again the physical is devalued in favor of the spiritual, and one might argue that yet again we have a Cartesian privileging of the mind over the body. However, this does not contradict my previous assertion that Bel seeks nonidentity and wishes to see Smerry mirror him in this state of statelessness, for the mental arena of Bel’s masturbation is within the first two zones of his mind, not within the third dark zone, the “wombtomb,” where he ceases to exist in identity.

Although Neary and Wylie are perhaps more overtly motivated by the desire for physical possession, it would be misleading to draw too much of a distinction between their desires and those of Murphy. Even before Celia, Neary suggests that Murphy himself has been motivated purely by sexual desire in his affairs with various women: “He [Neary] recalled how Murphy had boasted of conducting his amours on the lines laid down by Fletcher’s Sullen Shepherd” (Murphy 33). ”22 Murphy is also claimed to hold the “plaisir de rompre [to be] the rationale of social contacts” (33); that is, the “pleasure of breaking” relationships once satisfaction has been gained, as in Jules Renard’s play of the same title.
