A Choice Outstanding Academic Books 1995
Deconstruction, it seems, is dead. Its death, according to Jeffrey T. Nealon, is commonly attributed either to suicide--a direct result of its own decline into a formalism it was supposed to remedy--or to murder at the hands of the New Historicists. Looking beyond its presumed demise, Nealon sees its insights as continuing to figure importantly in postmodernist critical debates.
