Beschreibung

An examination of the intersection between the writing of Jacques Derrida and the Gothic. In the last thirty years the living-dead, the revenant, the phantom, and the crypt have appeared with increasing frequency in Jacques Derrida's writings and, for the most part, have gone unaddressed. In Cryptomimesis Jodey Castricano examines the intersection between Derrida's writing and the Gothic to theorize what she calls Derrida's "poetics of the crypt." She develops the theory of cryptomimesis, a term devised to accommodate the convergence of philosophy, psychoanalysis, and certain "Gothic" stylistic, formal, and thematic patterns and motifs in Derrida's work that give rise to questions regarding writing, reading, and interpretation. Using Edgar Allan Poe's Madeline and Roderick Usher, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Stephen King's Louis Creed, she illuminates Derrida's concerns with inheritance, revenance, and haunting and reflects on deconstruction as ghost writing.

Pressestimmen

"An extremely intelligent and well-written analysis of Jacques Derrida's theories of writing. Castricano shows how Derrida's investigation of writing and the self that is created in and through language is a fundamentally 'Gothic' story. She is obviously an expert in both Derrida and the Gothic, and is conversant with the critical traditions relevant to each. This book, with its insightful reading of Derrida, offers a valuable contribution to the development of Gothic studies." Anne Williams, Department of English, University of Georgia /// "A strong, lucid, and engaging book on a complex and highly abstract subject. Castricano demostrates a real grasp of Derrida and the major texts in the Freudian tradion and its revision, and she continually explains or inflects one point through another in a deft synthesis of theoretical points of view." Eric Savoy, Department of English, University of Calgary
