Title: Are Parody and Deconstruction Secretly the Same Thing?
Authors: Phiddian, Robert Andrew
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: Johns Hopkins University Press
Citation: Phiddian, Robert 1997. Are Parody and Deconstruction Secretly the Same Thing? 'New Literary History', vol.28, no.4, 673-696.
Abstract: In this essay, Robert Phiddian argues that Derridean deconstruction is not just a (serious) theory couched in a parodic mode (that it is a parodic theory of language), but also that it treats language and questions of truth and reference as if they were already in a play of parody (that it is a theory of parodic language). Though some recent work is beginning to look at ways of taking it less "seriously," this is decidedly not the way it has generally been received in the academic community.
