The dark power of belonging : The T-Shirt
MetadataShow full item record
In The T-Shirt, disagreement overflows into brutal confrontation, as the two characters provoke each other to act out roles preordained by the power of symbols. What Freud called the ‘narcissism of minor differences’ is rendered here as social pathology, dramatized in miniature in the violent encounter of two ordinary people.
