Derrida, Jacques. Margot Norris. Boston: Bedford, Quoting Joyce himself, one of the things that Derrida talks about in reading Ulysses is the relationship between the postcard and publication. He builds memorable characters and allows us to enter their minds, only to show them being encountered by the same textual and interpretive issues we face ourselves as we read Ulysses.
Derrida originally gave this reading as a lecture to a group of Joyce scholars in Germany, and he uses this informal style to indirectly demonstrate an alternative method of reading Joyce, one that is not as rigorous but perhaps more revealing.
Suggesting his own incompetence as an authority on Joyce, Derrida also brings into question the idea of literary competence. Does a first-time reader who encounters Ulysses , anonymous postcard that it is, have any more competence than a reader with background knowledge? You are commenting using your WordPress.

Ulysse gramophone. Deux mots pour Joyce
The unspoken, signified, tactile Yes: a check mark, a thumbs up, a head nod, a handshake, a signature. After all, a double negative turns into a positive. Meanwhile, two Yeses may double an affirmation but not always. Then, there are the moments when the word Yes does not even signify a Yes. For a punishing punster like Derrida, these latter homophones are fundamentally related. While such a position borders on hyperbole, I would agree on some level.
