Abstract :
Examines the French theorist's essays 'Plus R/Into the bargain' and 'Mes chances,' together with the work of two avant-garde masters, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett, and two contemporary avant-garde authors, Ronald Sukenick and Bruce D. Price. Finds that Derrida borrowed techniques from these authors and adapted avant-garde literary innovations in his own writings. Suggests that he ultimately fails to align his ideas with the avant-garde by way of his writing style, and that his work is at odds with the core spirit of the avant-garde (engagement with society with the hope of mediation). ;
