Someone Called Derrida: . .has been added to your Cart

Someone Called Derrida: .has been added to your Cart. John Schad has written a moving memoir of his father’s life, taking as his starting point the last traumatic years (1992-96) marked by panicked and perplexing utterances prompted by the onset of Alzheimer’. chad has threaded through this intimate portrait of a dying father an elaborate engagement with the philosophy of deconstruction, and with a history of Oxford from the 1930s to the present. Creative writing, life writing and literary theory are brought together in this challenging text. Schad does three things.

Someone Called Derrida book. The book mixes literary criticism and archival scholarship with (auto)biography, investigative history, detective fiction, and, indeed, Oxford.

Reverend John Richard Schad was a dedicated minister in the Church of England.

From 1992-1996, as his mind unravelled, his wife dutifully wrote down the words her husband uttered. They were not the kind of words she expected.

Someone called Jacques Derrida, someone called him on the phone, someone who was dead - this was August 22nd 1979. A mystery, he thought; but it is a mystery that began more than ten years earlier, in 1968, when Derrida, a philosopher, visits Oxford and there, before the very eyes of the Philosophy Sub-Faculty, he dies, several times.

Someone called Jacques Derrida, someone called him on the phone, someone who was dead - this was August 22nd 1979. And so I shall investigate, and begin with a sign that the philosopher says he left within a book from the thirteenth century, a strange fortune-telling book that he had found in the oldest part of Oxford's Bodleian Library.

Adherence to a unique aesthetic quest has also marginalized her from mainstream anthologies. In this context of relative critical abandon, Debra Faszer-McMahon’s study is most welcome. Any book-length study would help draw attention to this remarkable poet, but Cultural Encounters is not just any study, but an outstanding piece of scholarship that convincingly substantiates the premise that Janés’s poetry is not only fine-tuned aesthetically but also a stellar example of literary–ethical discourse.

My previous book, Someone Called Derrida (Sussex, 2007), was a novelistic combination of traditional archival scholarship with memoir, investigative history, detective fiction, and Oxford; it is, in a sense, a book that explores the space between critical and creative writing. I have since completed a book entitled John Schad in Conversation (De La Salle University Press) as part of a series including conversations with Christopher Norris, Jonathan Dollimore, Catherine Belsey, and Derek Attridge.

"What interests me today is not strictly called either 'literature' or 'philosophy'...'autobiography' is perhaps the least inadequate name." - Jacques Derrida *** 'Autobiography' may be the least inadequate name for deconstruction, but it is not the least complex since, for Jacques Derrida, all confession is what he calls 'circumfession' - a telling of one's life that works circuitously, via a detour around the life of another. This book seeks, therefore, to plot or narrate the life of Derrida through or around the lives of others. Some are likely, continental others, such as Paul de Man and Paul Celan; some, though, are wholly unlikely, English others whom Derrida never even knew, such as C. S. Lewis, Hugh Trevor Roper, and, above all, the author's deceased father Richard Schad, a man who was neither famous nor eminent, simply a kind of Everyman, or Everybody. To quote Robert Smith, "how much of [deconstruction] is...'everybody's autobiography.'" In tracing these comings and goings, author John Schad considers to what extent deconstruction may best be called 'the biography of the other,' or what Derrida himself playfully calls an 'autobiothanatoheterograpical opus,' a body of writing through which others somehow ghost-write their own lives and, indeed, deaths - this is not just autobiography but autothanatography. The book mixes literary criticism and archival scholarship with (auto)biography, investigative history, detective fiction, and, indeed, Oxford. Forming as it does one continuous narrative, Someone Called Derrida may be closer in style to a novel than a conventional academic study. The outcome is quite startling.
