Around the Book

Henry Sussman

Fordham University Press

Literature is the portal to impossibility implanted within the Western canons of philosophy, religion, and literature, but usually out of radar range. Literature also, has been one of the two counterpoised moments in the breathing rhythm of Derrida's prose. Additionally, deconstruction has always been something provocative as it undergoes different arguments within itself that may give consciousness in general and aesthetic production. The challenge faced by Derrida in the book entitled Of Grammatology in no way writes off the book medium as the prevailing ongoing display of textual programming. Despite the challenges, Derrida does not limit himself to literary commentary whenever he needs to do the action in the constitutional convention and the division of tasks and functions of genre. Furthermore, the deconstructive critique of genre arises in an admixture of modalities and forms precisely of the sort proscribed by the law of genre.

Keywords:   literature, impossibility, philosophy, religion, Derrida, deconstruction, aesthetic production, Of Grammatology, genre
