Saving the Text cuts through Jacques Derrida's complex blend of philosophy, commentary, and elaborate wordplay to ascertain his place in the history of criticism and the significance of Glas as a literary event. Distinguished critic and scholar Geoffrey Hartman explores the usefulness of Derrida's style of close reading for English and American scholarship and establishes its relevance to the division that has arisen between European and Anglo-American critical approaches.

This is where one ought to go for a sense of what advanced literary theory is pursuing, what it demands of itself and of its texts, and also of its readers. * Los Angeles Times * The tone... is excited, gathering, confident; one feels that Hartman is happiest near the text, even a text as strange and unclassifiable as Glas... This particular indeterminacy has stirred new shoots in Hartman's critical wilderness. * MLN *
