About this book


Theorrhoea and After completes the work of the author's previous critiques which demolished post-Saussurean thought and observes the tactics used by theorists to keep theory alive. He then moves on to examine literature and the other arts from a viewpoint that goes beyond the ideas of those bewitched by contemporary postmodernist thought. Witty and profound, it aims to entertain as well as illuminate and is a notable continuation of the arguments advanced by one of today's leading cultural critics.
