thoma S F. haddo x bet ween hist ory and aesthetics Dirt and Desire in Dialogue with Aff ect Theory and Paul Ricoeur First, a memory. I remember reading, fi ft een years ago, a sentence from the second paragraph of Patricia Yaeger’Dir s t and Desire—“When I open a Perhaps, in story by a southern woman writer I fi nd fi gures and the end, what ideas that astonish” (ix)—and thinking jadedly, “So a dialogue I’m to be astonished. Surprise, surprise.” Although Yaeger was complaining with much justifi cation among Yaeger, about the “rather ordinary expectations about the aff ect theory, South and what we will fi nd in southern literature” (ix) that had previously held sway in southern stud- and Ricoeur ies, I suspected that on the basis of her title and her reveals is not opening salvo alone, I could anticipate many of her critical commitments and touchstones. Even if these just the limits commitments and touchstones had not yet been of our approach fully naturalized within southern studies, they could seem “rather ordinary” to a scholar coming of age in to history, but the 1990s, and the moves that they might entail in the necessity
