perhaps the 'poets lie too much' ( Z ) if for N the best parables are images
of intransitoriness and becoming by the time of BGE, the most profound
spirits hate even these images although N cannot escape the necessity of
masks. i don't think this is a return to Platonism by Nietzsche as is
so dan, curiosity kills the cat, ( and its the easter break) where do you
draw the line here between N and Derrida, N and Deleuze, here. Delueze, it
seems to me, reorganises the 'profundity' of N the Person as difference
without a concept whereas Derrida's constitutive problematics seem to be
those of the 'poet who lies too much'.
this is what i mean't when i said Spivak's problem can't, constitiutively,
see the potentials of Deleuze and Guattari but i would like to know how your
Nietzsche, the one peculiar to you and no one else, understands this
if any one thinks this a use and abuse of the listserve, please, as i have
said many times, delete without reading.

ouch that smarts!
sorry, clifford. i momentarily forgot that POETRY and POETS
are the most important valuable resource on planet earth.
what could have come over me? i can only assure you it won't
after all, "everybody knows" where poetry comes from and
what it means, don't they? there's no dispute about the way
to read a text, nothing to discuss about the relationship
between a text and the milieu in which it was produced.
gosh, i feel so foolish. forgive me.
