Incurable haunting: Saluting Michel Deguy
Reframing the vocation of the poet in a reading of a singular poet, Michel Deguy, Derrida in 'How to Name' calls for a singular poetics 'each time' and an entirely other poetic accompaniment. Poetry, he shows, is devoted to an 'incurable haunting,' the haunting of two saluts: salvation (desiring safety and conferring health) and salutation (calling out and greeting). © The Oxford Literary Review.
