Description

'I am struck by the extraordinary quality of this work, particularly by the uncompromising rigor and remarkable and rich introduction. I am already learning a lot from this book' - Jacques Derrida. 'A most intelligent collection of essays. They deepen our understanding of Derrida, and remove the suspicion of mystification from his treatment of philosophic and literary issues' - Geoffrey Hartmann, Yale University. '"Displacement: Derrida and After" is an important and challenging contribution to literary studies. Its focus on displacement is welcome and allows for considerable enlightenment on this undeniably central aspect and concern of recent literary theory' - G. Douglas Atkins. 'Part of the growing body of commentary on Jacques Derrida in English, these essays exemplify the new sophistication toward deconstruction in Britain and the United States' - Michael Sprinker, "Times Literary Supplement". 'What these essays all witness to is the extraordinary energy of thought and style which Derrida's writings have unleashed among admiring and dissenting commentators alike' - Christopher Norris, "London Review of Books". Mark Krupnick, Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, is author of "Lionel Trilling" and "The Fate of Cultural Criticism".show more
