Golz demonstrates how the work of Austrian poet Ingeborg Bachmann (1926-1973) draws the limits of the universe of European modern male writing from the outside, while Nietzsche, Kafka, and Derrida, by contrast, systematically repress the possibility Bachmann utilizes. Golz also exposes the intrinsic genderedness of Derridas theorization of writing by taking deconstruction one step further than Derrida permits it to go. That additional step reveals that the stance assumed in Bachmanns work is a founding blindspot not only of Derridean deconstruction, but also of most contemporary criticism and literary theory. The Split Scene of Reading makes a contribution of considerable magnitude to several areas of contemporary scholarship: the theorization of textuality, reference, gender, and subjecthood. By considering the interaction of actual subjects and representation, Golz also addresses a crucial (and under-theorized) juncture at the heart of cultural studies. She also makes significant and thought-provoking contributions to the critical literatures on Nietzsche, Kafka, and Derrida.
