Example text

The house itself conveys some essential symbolism enriching the structure of the implied space. The room in which the housekeeper operates is described as having “the open window”—a symbol of the world as an openended system. Two things are emphasized with regard to the window: it lets the flies “fly out and in,” and it gives an idea of the world beyond the house. The world outside of the house is represented as extremely rich and beautiful, so that the house with the sugar-loaf is not the only place for the flies’ delight (the summer “spreads dainties for them at every step”).

As the metaphor extends, however, the flies acquire the features of fantastic creatures—flies-officials—that in turn generate the appearance of new beings. First of all, this concerns a mentioning of a “sparkling sugar-loaf ” about which the flies are flitting. With the introduction of this new object (the sugar loaf) that has no analogy in the first part of the comparison, the development of the implied space begins. Indeed, although the flies have “prototypes” in the space of action—the officials—the sugar-loaf appears to be an object pertaining only to a symbolic sphere with a broad field of meanings (which should be supported and developed by a subsequent analysis of other symbols).

Tragedy is essentially an imitation not of persons but of action and life, of happiness and misery. All human happiness or misery takes the form of action; the end for which we live is a certain kind of activity, not a quality. Character gives us qualities, but it is in our actions—what we do—that we are happy or the reverse. (Basic Works 1461; 1450a, 16–20) The Aristotelian philosophy resembles behaviorism, which has never inquired into the individual’s inner structure, genetic code, or system of emotions; therefore, an observation on a person’s behavior is the only possible way to speculate about his or her character.
