Inscription and Modernity charts the vicissitudes of inscriptive poetry produced in the middle of the nice and catastrophic political, social, and highbrow upheavals of the past due 18th to mid twentieth centuries. Drawing at the principles of Geoffrey Hartman, Perry Anderson, Fredric Jameson, and Jacques Rancière between others, John MacKay exhibits how quite a lot of Romantic and post-Romantic poets (including Wordsworth, Clare, Shelley, Hölderlin, Lamartine, Baudelaire, Blok, Khlebnikov, Mandelstam, and Rolf Dieter Brinkmann) hire the established assets of inscription either to justify their writing and to draw a readership, in the course of a posh historic section whilst the reason for poetry and the id of audiences have been concerns of severe but effective doubt.

Example text

I interrupt to reduce the question: How does glas work? The task is to draw out the limits of that question, to provide protocols to an answer, to "add" a thread in reading. " We must risk "getting a few fingers caught" (DO 7 I; DDis 63), says the atttlque Genet himself finds intoxicating (Les Lettres Franraises, No. 1429, 29 March 197 2, p. 14)· To begin, the interpolations. Derrida calls them judases. In naming he betrays. We need to follow that betrayal in order to read. In Glas there is a judas, there are judases and Judases: Judas the traitor apostle, Judas the other apostle (jude), and judas the peephole.

14)· To begin, the interpolations. Derrida calls them judases. In naming he betrays. We need to follow that betrayal in order to read. In Glas there is a judas, there are judases and Judases: Judas the traitor apostle, Judas the other apostle (jude), and judas the peephole. In particular here, one judas that seems far afield, a judas on the judas. This Judas occurs in the right column, towards the end (24Ibi [269bi}), and the judas itself runs for about four pages (238bi-42bi [266bi-69biD. " and "Perhaps what I am doing with you"), this judas concerns the wounded column that needs bandaging-pamer-that needs thinking-penseras well: "The column is wounded, otherwise it would not be a column.

The trap into which Foucault fell is that "the revolution against reason can be made only within it, in accordance with a Hegelian law to which I myself was very sensitive in Foucault's book, despite the absence of any precise reference to Hegel. " At the same time, Derrida discerns an alternative project-implied, if not performed-in Foucault's study, one opening perhaps a greater possibility of success: to discover a moment before the division of reason and madness, defined as the moment of Decision which "links and separates reason and madness: I would prefer dissension [over "decision"] to underline that in question is a self-dividing action, a cleavage and torment interior to meaning in general, interior to logos in general, a division within the very act of sentire.
