Joseph G. Kronick is Professor of English at Louisiana State University. He is the author of American Poetics of History: From Emerson to the Moderns and coeditor (with Bainard Cowan) of Theorizing American Literature: Hegel, the Sign, and History.Review:
“I like this book for at least three reasons. First of all, it is the first book-length study of Derrida’s understanding of literature. This alone is an achievement. Second, Kronick shows, in the most convincing ways, to what extent Derrida’s terms, concepts, issues, etc., hang together. Third, he proceeds patiently and cautiously, steering clear of all simplification. As a result, this study provides a number of very well wrought formulations that illuminate some very difficult issues in significant ways.” ― Rodolphe Gasché, author of Inventions of Difference: On Jacques Derrida
“This is an important and mature assessment of the role of the literary in Derrida’s work. Two aspects are particularly valuable: first, Kronick’s excellent discussion of the event as the structure of iteration, or singularity marked by the difference of its repetition; second, his careful analysis of literature’s ‘invention’ of its referent, of the double bind of literature: necessary referentiality and, equally important, its undermining of representation.” ― Krzysztof Ziarek, author of Inflected Language: Toward a Hermeneutics of Nearness: Heidegger, Levinas, Stevens, Celan
