Haven’t seen any ravenous creatures around though, thankfully!

Okay maybe except for one.

HL814 Mid-term assignment

“… a book where each phrase is a moment. Each one complete and necessary. Each one is self reliant: completes its work without leaving it up to the following phrase. As if nobody knew whether another would follow
– Hélène Cixous

If Cixous is to be believed, the implication(s) of her claim is that a book is a paradoxical premise; composed both of phrases that are complete within themselves, and yet part of something else. This would suggest that the book is both a sum of complete totals, and yet never quite just that summation: it is both more and less than its parts at the same time.

Please respond to Cixous’ claim with reference to at least one text (which may or may not be from the course readings).
