More Theories...

Keesey, Ch 6 (Introduction) -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

Kessey addressed all of the previous arguments that he and the previous critics had made, including all of the theories. He then went on and examined each individual theory and noted the reasons why those theories work and do not work. For example, he would go into detail as to why the intertextual critics would disagree with something that he stated...he would say where they had valid points of skepticism and gave them credit when they proved a valid argument.

I also learned alot about Derrida, who is a French philosopher. The mention of Derrida was interesting because I was able to get a summary of who he was and what his beliefs were before I read his essay.

"By subjecting 'philosophical' texts to careful, formal analysis, Derrida seeks to show that there is no such language" (346).
