9780748681228: Material Inscriptions: Rhetorical Reading in Practice and Theory (The Frontiers of Theory EUP)

A new work of scholarship in the 'practice' of rhetorical reading. This monograph provides readings of literary and philosophical texts that work through the rhetoric of tropes to the material inscription at the origin of these texts. The book focuses on the practice and pedagogical value of rhetorical reading. Its readings follow an itinerary from poetic texts (such as those by Wordsworth and Keats) through theoretical or philosophical texts (by Descartes and Nietzsche) to narrative fiction (by Henry James). The book also contains two essays on Paul de Man and literary theory and an interview on the topic of Deconstruction at Yale." All three of these latter texts are explicitly about the inescapable function and importance of the rhetoric of tropes for any critical reading or literary study worthy of the name.As Andrzej Warminski demonstrates, 'rhetorical reading' is a species of 'deconstructive reading'-in the full 'de Manian' sense-but one that, rather than harkening back to a past over and done with, would open the texts to a different future.

Book Description EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title includes readings that work through tropes disclose the material inscription at the origins of literary texts. Focusing insistently on the practice of rhetorical reading, this book demonstrates how the self-undoing of tropological systems necessarily generates narratives which turn out to be allegories of their own conditions of (im)possibility. The volume also contains two essays on Paul de Man and literary theory, as well as an interview on the topic of Deconstruction at Yale . These latter texts are explicitly about the place of rhetoric and its importance for any critical reading worthy of the name. As Warminski demonstrates, such rhetorical reading is a species of deconstructive reading - in the full de Manian sense - but one that, rather than harkening back to a past over and done with, would open the texts to a different future. Features: new readings of texts by Wordsworth, Keats, Descartes, Nietzsche, and Henry James; and essays and an interview on Paul de Man and Deconstruction at Yale . It reflects on and exemplifies the pedagogical value of de Manian rhetorical reading. Bookseller Inventory # AA79780748681228
