Fellini Satyricon and Dreaming Tradition
This chapter analyzes the film, Fellini Satyricon, arguing that we can learn much from the film if we see it as a consubstantial nexus of translation, refragmentation, oneiric imagining, and pure creative fantasy. Fellini Satyricon has considerable value as a kind of allegory of reception — beyond the simple fact that it is itself an instance of reception, one that captures quite well something of the late 1960s’ cultural upheavals. It represents a clear case of aggressive fantasy freed up by engaging the fragments of the ancient past in their opacity and irreparable loss as much as in their vital retention.
