So from it I shall borrow­in a contemplative rather than a distracted spirit­two quotations to modify the sharp oppositions I've created, before discussing his work in more detail. " So I will use his quotation in turn as a response to the terrifying and unrelenting coherence of Baudrillard's fatal strategies. " I think that this includes being very careful about our enunciative and "anecdotal" strategies­more careful than much cultural studies has been in its mimesis of a popular voice­and their relation to the institutional places we may occupy as we speak.

But the intention didn't matter: the flash of hilarity and encouragement the song gave viewers otherwise mortified by the Invasion festival would be, in de Certeau's terms, a product of their "tactical" use of the show, their insinuation of polemical significance into the place of programmed pleasure. " "They always fuck us over" may be a fact but not a law: utopian spaces deny the immutability and authority of facts, and together both spaces refuse the fatality (the fatum, "what has been spoken," destiny decreed) of an established order.

If the other figures mythically as "voice" in the scriptural economy, the voice in turn discursively figures in the primary form of quotation­a mark or trace of the other. " Necessarily more difficult to describe than the science of fables, these returns and turns of voices are suggested, rather than represented, by examples: Page 34 opera (a "space for voices" that emerged at the same time as the scriptural economy), Nathalie Granger, Marguerite Duras's "film of voices," but also the stammers, voice­gaps, vague rhythms, unexpectedly moving or memorable turns of phrase that mark our most mundane activities and haunt our everyday prose (162­63).
