    This response to Lynne Segal’s Out of Time (2013) focuses on the cultural visibility of melancholia. I argue that melancholic time is just 1 element of the experience of being haunted by what has gone before and what is yet to come. Against the idea of the return of a past that is full of melancholic objects, I try to evoke an experience of repetition and linkage that might resonate with Lynne Segal’s tracing of the celebratory routes to memory and survival.
