9781509500642: Death Shall Be Dethroned: Los, A Chapter, the Journal

Death Shall Be Dethroned is the “shadow book” of Los, a Chapter, Hélène Cixous tells us. It came along after Los, but it was always there "hidden" in her notebooks, in the Beethoven notebook, say, the one Jacques Derrida gave her. But when it tapped at the window, she ignored it until the day she had to let it in. This is just of one the enigmas Death explores as it probes an old relationship between the narrator and “Carlos.” Another is her discovery on the Internet that Carlos’s archives were at Princeton, and that the archive containing their correspondence was closed to the public: “Bluebeard’s closet. The fruit on the tree of Good and Evil. You shall not open.”

Death Shall Be Dethroned is the logbook of Los, a Chapter. It owes its life to the death of a lover.

About the Author:

Hélène Cixous is one of the world’s leading writers. She is the founder and former director of the Centre de Recherches en Études Féminines at Paris VIII.

Review:

Death Shall Be Dethroned sees the welcome translation into English of another instalment of Cixous's ongoing reflection on the profound connection between writing and loss. Part meditation, part diary, part literary comment, this book is wholly Cixous: bittersweet, yet sounding a note of gold. ”
Mairéad Hanrahan, University College London

“This book is for everyone who can’t forget or always understand the phrase: ‘Love is stronger than death.’ Cixous remembers passion, laughter and shared company, discloses the untimely glories of love, but still gives death its due. This beautiful fear-defying writing stands witness that death in its own way gives life.”
Sarah Wood, University of Kent
