Description
Deconstruction has entered the mainstream and is commonly used to analyze anything from a business plan to a person's life (as in Woody Allen's Deconstructing Harry). But some in the academy hold deconstruction, and Jacques Derrida in particular, responsible for the demise of accountability in the study of literature.

Herman Rapaport explores the incoherence that has plagued critical theory since the 1960s, and the resulting legitimacy crisis in the humanities. Against the backdrop of a rich, informed discussion of Derrida's writings -- and how they have been misconstrued by critics and admirers alike -- the book investigates how English criticism has lost its center and offers an antidote.
