This is a comprehensive interpretation of Paul de Man's theoretical itinerary prior to his emergence as the doyen of deconstruction in America. The book includes sections on Hegelian poetics, Heidegger's thought, and romanticism, the main areas in which de Man carried out his critical work before 1970. His encounters with dialectical negations in Mallarme and Blanchot, Heidegger's existential analytic poetics of Being, the antagonism of symbol and allegory in Benjamin, and Derrida's deconstruction of Rousseau all present opportunities for tracing the figures which, in various guises, remained crucial in de Man's Theory: being inaccessible, intention unfulfillable, truth unattainable - in brief, figures of failure. 247pp. N.B. Corners bumped. Spine slightly scuffed.
