Summary
"In the second edition of his book (Vampires): An Uneasy Essay on the Undead in Film (2003), Jalal Toufic notes: "I was for years concerned with schizophrenia and with schizophrenics, who appeared in my Credits Included: A Video in Red and Green, 1995; and I am now interested in 'the little girl', whom I expect to appear in my coming vampire film. . . . At one level, the Thirteenth Series in Gilles Deleuze's The Logic of Sense, 1969, 'The Schizophrenic and the Little Girl', can thus be retrospectively viewed as a program for the work of a decade on my part." In this new essay, he writes on the portrait of the pubescent girl, including in Poe's "The Oval Portrait". "The successful portrait of a pubescent girl is not a rite of passage but a rite of non-passage; what needs a rite is not passage, which is the natural state (at least for historical societies), but non-passage, the radical differentiation between the before, in this case a pubescent girl, and the after, a woman." From the portrait of the pubescent girl, Toufic moves to the portrait in general and its paradigmatic relation to the angel; thus the title of this notebook: Reading, rewriting Poe's "The oval portrait"--angelically."--Publisher's website
