Dramatization of Experience as the Key to Experience


I’m reading Georges Bataille (Critical Lives) by Stuart Kendall and it briefly mentions that Bataille saw dramatization (of experience (?)) as the key to experience. I think this is definitely true in that when we dramatize our experience, we expand it to a “grand level” in which we can now see that what our unconscious (think Freud’s usage of this term) used to hide, now becomes revealed as we have a “larger view” of everything. This also helps us to better understand our experience.

How sweet terror is, not a single line, or a ray of morning sunlight fails to contain the sweetness of anguish. - Georges Bataille
