Derrida Deconstructs

The papers and not a few bloggers have mentioned Jacques Derrida's recent death. And "deconstruction" has had a look-in as a consequence. Don't expect an explanation here; too big words for me.

But this essay, however, should do the trick. It may be all you ever need to know about deconstruction. It is, in fact, a short how-to course for any budding English literature professors. Should save hours of reading and a fortune in Cliff's Notes.
