Boll1-Boll13</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:abstract xml:lang="eng">This article traces how Jez Butterworth’s play Jerusalem (2009) portrays, in its main character Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron, the figure of what Giorgio Agamben calls the homo sacer, the bare life, as a character that encapsulates both the scapegoat and the monster. The dreams and the fears of the community equally settle on him, whose liminal state of being signifies the watershed between accepted and unaccepted, desired and undesired, and ultimately franchised and free. In this way, the play is revealed as a portrayal not only of the state of England, but of how contemporary societies treat their outcasts.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2013-05-07T10:56:44Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2013-05-07T10:56:44Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Boll, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The Sacred Dragon in the Woods : on Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Boll, Julia</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
