On deconstruction : theory and criticism after structuralism
Of course, the interesting thing about a travelling concept is not that it travels — travelers, tales about their travels can be quite boring and wholly unprofitable — but what it reveals through its travels. The text is thus both the pure origin, the manifestation of the final intention of the author, and an object marked by a history of material practices of transmission, which bring corruption. Textual scholarship was and indeed still is a process of reconstruction, based on methods which themselves are much open to debate, but it is only recently that the idea of the text as the corrupted material form in which the original intentions must be divined has been challenged. Modern textual scholars such as Jerome McGann have sought to reconceive the text as social act and to focus on the materiality of the social practices of transmission and publication, from inks and papers to book prices and editorial practices, and to think of these things as socially significant. What I would like to stress here, then, is that in the idea of text in traditional textual scholarship we see a duality that will reappear in different forms. The notion of text is that of a material object but also of the very form of the work, in its original, ideal state. But texts are of interest above all because of that which is or ought to be carried by or manifested in the material text, and thus seldom identified unreservedly with what appears on paper.

In his remarkable little essay on French Classical Tragedy, a critical gem of incisive originality that scholars would be well-advised not to ignore, Mandel goes about proving — yes, proving — that "Thomas Corneille created a work Ariane more nearly irreproachable — as classical drama — than any written by the two masters, his brother and Racine" p. Today, scholars and critics would not dream of "proving" a point. We merely utter truths, the eternal truths of the moment. But prove? Horresco referens, Oscar Mandel does precisely that. Moreover, he is totally and elegantly persuasive.
