Legacies of Paul de Man

Marc Redfield

Fordham University Press

De Man initially intended this special issue on “The Rhetoric of Romanticism”—which shares its title (in advance) with his own posthumous collection of essays on Wordsworth, Kleist, Shelley, Hölderlin, and Yeats—to be an outlet for work emerging from his 1977–78 NEH seminar. Though Guillory's book has at times been critically reviewed, neither the accuracy of his account of de Man nor the filiations linking that account to his book's broader claims about literary canon-formation have been carefully examined. Yet this chapter's violent reduction of de Manian theory to sociological symptom releases a truth that more timid or technically “accurate” accounts of de Man are likely to overlook.

Keywords:   posthumous, Guillory, filiations, canon-formation, timid
