Closure versus subversion, product versus practice, meaning-containing object versus significance-scattering process: Barthes' theory of writing owes a great deal, as we shall see, both to Marxism and to psychoanalysis. Deconstructionist design wasn't well received by modernism, an advocate of practicality and effectiveness; however, as the beginning of subsequent postmodernism, it started to earn a warm welcome from a number of designers. There has been incessant critical contradiction in terms of the heritage of deconstruction. Then there is a section on the contemporary deconstructionist approach of Jacques Derrida and Paul de Man who expose tropic activity within philosophical discourse itself. Abdul Hakim, KH.
Of course, the interesting thing about a travelling concept is not that it travels — travelers, tales about their travels can be quite boring and wholly unprofitable — but what it reveals through its travels. The text is thus both the pure origin, the manifestation of the final intention of the author, and an object marked by a history of material practices of transmission, which bring corruption. Textual scholarship was and indeed still is a process of reconstruction, based on methods which themselves are much open to debate, but it is only recently that the idea of the text as the corrupted material form in which the original intentions must be divined has been challenged. Modern textual scholars such as Jerome McGann have sought to reconceive the text as social act and to focus on the materiality of the social practices of transmission and publication, from inks and papers to book prices and editorial practices, and to think of these things as socially significant. What I would like to stress here, then, is that in the idea of text in traditional textual scholarship we see a duality that will reappear in different forms.

That is, Culler here and in his other books is less interested in following a school of thought or theoretical movement, but rather in constantly exploring how we might construct intelligible frameworks for understanding how we as readers handle gaps between meaning and experience that we constantly come across in literature. Academic Writing in the Public Arena , and The Literary in Theory , we see the deep impulse to sidestep oppositional thinking and shun any leanings toward a unified theory or approach to the study of literature.
First of all, I must say that this entry is going to be a great length and great detail, so if you do not read, it will be difficult to follow my presentation. With that said, here is the presentation on Jonathan Culler's "Structuralism and Literature. Considering how this specific theory is very applicable, not only toward reading literature, but rather teaching literature, I find it very relevant to my field of study. This essay is very appropriate toward those who are trying to learn criticisms in general because in order to teach, one must have obtained the skills necessary to complete his or her job fully. While I agree wholeheartedly with this statement, I find extreme difficulty in mastering any operations that require as much depth and intellect behind the conventions of structuralism. This is a "mixed bag" of criticisms associated with each other, and for many, more and more questions become asked because of the difficulty behind a structuralist argument.
