The Rhetoric of Affirmative Resistance

jected through Heidegger involves the affirmation of the otherness that articulates the difference of identity and ... an ethical place afforded by the projection of the aleatory narrative construct in La pleurante des rues de Prague.

The Rhetoric of Affirmative Resistance

In this wide-ranging, challenging theoretical study, Julian Wolfreys offers close readings of films, novels and poetry in order to draw attention to the ways in which texts resist acts of reading by performing their own idiomatic, wayward identities. Looking at the construction of identity in Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, James Joyce, Maya Deren, Sylvie Germain, Jacques Derrida, Michel Deguy, and George Eliot, Wolfreys asks the reader to reassess the textual performance of identity by attending to a rhetoric which is simultaneously both resistant to mastery and affirmative of dissonance.
