The Kubrickian Odysseus is, in a certain way, captured within the movement of the Eternal Return, his fate being sealed off to a circular logic of time ticking and urgency, as in The Killing. Francis Baring. More information about this seller Contact this seller As Pierre Giuliani writes:. Zarathoustra, the wanderer-philosopher - who incessantly returns to his cave - uses a threefold parable to explain the Superman, which is "the meaning of the earth to be found behind the thoughts and feelings, where the body is, as well as the self in the body : the Terra Incognita":. Armand Louis de Gontaut, Duc de Lauzun.

This recalls the Vienese waltz of Johan Straus's The Blue Danube and the mechanical ballet of the Prater-like big wheel of , past and future reunited in the Eternal Return of the circle.
This also evokes Alex and the Eternal Return he accomplishes in re-living his situation counterclockwisely, till his renascent stage is reached after his missed suicide, which paradoxically, counterclockworkly, disrupts the superior mechanism which controls him. The Eternal Return for Jack and Danny who, by previewing their future situation by means of premonitory dreams or "shining" visions fuse their present with their future and their future with their past , both being proposed eternity in the Calypso's cave-like hotel.
Moreover, Jack's typing indefinitely "all work and no play made Jack a dull boy" conduces him to the limits of time which are also his own. Eternity might therefore be central to the Kubrickian meditation: Eternity is absolutely circular in Kubrick and the narrative circularity inherent to the Odyssean theme has become a film rhetoric, a stylization which occurs at each level of the filmic creation. Conceptual and mythical circles are given a circular configuration, the Odyssean structural juxtaposition between contents and containers is respected, Kubrick's circular aestheticization encompassing every detail: Clockwork Orange , for instance, as Jean-Loup Bourget noticed:.
In , the circle figure is the true representation of absoluteness and durability - as opposed to the instable, destructive, Oedipian triangle of the Hamlet -like Barry Lyndon or The Shining. It is also the symbol of procreation and gestation, circles and corridors converting the interior of Discovery into a well-lit-womb, which rejoins A.
Clarke's favourite theme namely, the qualitative mutation in human development and the notion of a kind of childhood's end for human history. The Space Odyssey - the film of metamorphoses, fecondations and births - terminates with a self-reproduction. The circle is symbolical of the superior mechanism acting in, on or under the hotel, and controlling, confining the residents to its circonference: Jack angrily throws a yellow tennis ball against a sand painting which, uncharacteristically, delineates a totally masculine world; within its enclosed design, which includes the traditional opening to the East, four male stand erect within the painting's circle.
It is as if Jack were knocking on the door of time, which is the door of his consciousness if one accepts the idea that the hotel is the extension of Jack's mind.
This could also be the door to the underworld - Hades - the Navajo circle being a protection against poltergeists. As Louis Hautecoeur writes:. It is also a way of helping him preserve his strength in isolation, without exterior loss The circle appears on the ground surface and imposes a limit, a frontier to the underground divinities, but they are even more stronger in their lairs, caves, crack. The surfacy of the circular image is also correlative with the metaphysical iceberg-like undertones of the Odyssean process.
