First Assignment

The assignment for next week--read to page 40 or so in MEMOIRS OF THE BLIND; also, write a one page rant wherein you speculate as to a particular kind of critical engagement where DERRIDA might figure as a foil, nemesis, ally, or guide--if you are a poet, is there a particular form or topic which might benefit from a sprinkling of Jacques? if you are a critical theory nut, is there some current debate afoot in the field wherein "Eli" might be inserted. Speculate, without regard to form! Rant eloquently--something like that!

First Chaser

This will be an attempt to communicate in an other way--chase, textually, without controlling (totally) the stream of things. Let's see if this works.
