The Death and Return of the Author: Criticism and Subjectivity in Barthes, Foucault and Derrida
In a revised and updated version of this popular book, Se n Burke provides the first detailed explanation of anti-authorialism and shows how the attempt to abolish the author is fundamentally untenable. Important additions to the new edition include: a section challenging Derrida's reading of Plato as the founder of logocentrism; an epilogue which deals with the politics of authorship and issues of technology; and a fully updated bibliography.
