Text and Voice: Essays 1981-1991 - JOSIPOVICI, Gabriel

Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. A very pleasant copy.

In a full-scale attack on structuralism and the wilder aspects of deconstruction, Josipovici shows how such an approach snits the academy/ denying the existential impact of art that asks us to listen and respond rather than dominate and control. These concerns illuminate essays on Dante, Wordsworth, Proust, Beckett and Perec, and on the critics Maurice Blanchot and Roland Barthes. The book concludes with the acclaimed Northcliffe Lectures, 'Writing and the Body/, which present a concerted argument about the place of the body in writing and reading, developing the thesis through suggestive analyses of Sterne, Shakespeare and Kafka.
