Situation is a 2007 studio album by Canadian hip hop musician Buck 65. It is entirely produced by Skratch Bastid.
Situation has received generally favorable reviews from critics.Metacritic gave the album a score of 68/100, based on 21 reviews.
Oscar Pascual of SF Weekly said, "[with] rhymes that theoretically combine to make Situation a concept album about 1957, Buck creates a number of dark and desperate characters to tell a wide array of seldom-uplifting stories." Meanwhile, Alex Macpherson of The Guardian noted that "[there] are isolated moments of beauty - the spare piano loop of Ho-Boys, though nothing new, is evocative and effective - but little sticks in the mind or stimulates the emotions." Dan Raper of PopMatters commented that "Situation is a cool, collected set of songs from the veteran Canadian rapper, but you shouldn’t be expecting anything revolutionary—at least, not from the music."
Earlier in 1939, in his short story The Childhood of a Leader, collected in his famous The Wall, referring to a fake turd, he said that in pranks "There is more destructive power in them than in all the works of Lenin."
Another famous use of the term was in 1945, in his editorial of the first issue of Les Temps modernes (Modern Times); arguing the principle of the responsibility of the intellectual towards his own times and the principle of an engaged literature, he summarized: "the writer is in a situation with his epoch."
An, influential use of the concept was in the context of theatre, in his 1947 essay For a Theatre of Situations. A passage that has been frequently quoted is the following, in which he defines the Theater of Situations:
He then published his series Situations, with ten volumes on Literary Critiques and What Is Literature? (1947), the third volume (1949), Portraits (1964), Colonialism and Neocolonialism (1964), Problems of Marxism, Part 1 (1966), Problems of Marxism, Part 2 (1967), The Family Idiot (1971-2), Autour de 1968 and Melanges (1972), and Life/Situations: Essays Written and Spoken (1976).
