Example text

At least for the reason that induces us to suspect the denomination ‘literature’, and that which subjects the concept to belles-lettres, to the arts, to poetry, to rhetoric, and to philosophy. These texts implement, in their very movement, the demonstration and practical deconstruction of the representation that was made of literature. (69, translation modified) And the passage from ‘The Double Session’ that I quoted earlier, although it asserts that there is hardly any literature, ever so little literature, asserts that it is a literary text – Mallarmé’s ‘Mimique’ – that would tell us this, if texts could tell us things.

Spivak’s subsequent career, like Young’s and Bhabha’s, shows an increasing commitment to questions of coloniality and migration, capitalist exploitation and popular resistance. In addition, she has devoted much attention to questions of gender and pedagogy. All these topics feature in her major books, including In Other Worlds (1987), Outside in the Teaching Machine (1993), A Critique of Postcolonial Reason (1999) and Other Asias (2008). Yet the connection with Derrida and deconstruction remains unbroken: to take just one example, A Critique of Postcolonial Reason has an Appendix entitled ‘The Setting to Work of Deconstruction’ in which Spivak rather baldly summarises Derrida’s intellectual career, as if the arguments and positions she sets out here are the necessary foundation for an understanding of the difficult, 400-page book that – the Derridean term is apt – they supplement.

If this handbook of literature meant to say [voulait-dire] something, which we now have some reason to doubt, it would proclaim first of all that there is no – or hardly any, ever so little – literature; that in any event there is no essence of literature, no truth of literature, no literary-being or being-literary of literature. indd 21 24/3/10 17:17:27 22 Reading and Responsibility Depicted in this way, literature doesn’t appear a very potent ally for the practice of deconstruction, and the emphasis placed by Culler, Gasché and Norris on Derrida’s work on, and within, the philosophical tradition might seem to be vindicated.
