Product description

An account of, and commentary on, a collection of dreams by this much admired French novelist, playwright and theorist. The dream is both a rich poetic tapestry and a key document in understanding Cixous' writing practice. The 'You' of the title is Jacques Derrida to whom it is recounted. The book then embarks on a deconstruction of psychoanalysis, the field of fiction and literary production, subjectivity, sexual difference, and the question of friendship. Derrida's response to "Dream I Tell You" is his book Genius, Genealogies, Genres and the Genie, also to be published by Edinburgh University Press in The Frontiers of Theory series. This series brings together internationally respected figures to comment on and re-describe the state of theory in the twenty-first century. It takes stock of an ever-expanding field of knowledge and opens up possible new modes of inquiry within it, identifying new theoretical pathways, innovative thinking and productive motifs.
