The second section explores occultism and folklore, suggesting ways of pursuing the Celt as one of those historically produced ideas that claim for itself freedom from history. The third section considers the literature surrounding the events of the French Revolution, noting what happened on October 6 1789. The fourth section examines the works of James Clarence Mangan.
