Attention and the Ethics of Perception: Iain Sinclair's London Orbital

(1)
1

Résumé

Drawing on criticism addressing Sinclair's works, this article is inspired by an approach based on the ethics of perception and vulnerability on the one hand, and the politics of (in-)visibility on the other. In the first part I address the issue of the ethics of perception, paying attention to the way in which they are performed in Sinclair's fiction with reference to the categories of attention and consideration. In the second part I address the modalities of social invisibility as inscribed in London Orbital. In the last part, I edge towards a discussion of suburban spaces as sites of vulnerability, addressing more specifically the figures of exposure and dispossession.
