I had just finished the entry below and I picked up "Antonin Artaud: Writing Bodies" by Adrian Morfee. In her intro she basically calls for a close reading of Artaud's poetry, arguing that Derrida and others have covered over the complexities and irregularities of his poetry with their more sweeping, philosophical interpretations. So I thought I'd mention how close reading can be seen as a way not to normalize and make organic but to call attention to the ways in which texts do not fit these models.

I just thought I'd mention this as a good citizen.
