Format: Paperback
I read this book by Gilles Deleuze several times because i had to write an essay for school about it. In the book critics and clinics Deleuze discusses the effort of invention by any writer and how this instrument of originality works. But Deleuze has no intention of being original nor does he seek new ways to obtain originality. Deleuze's battle is to find some ways to escape from the terror and reign of language, because his main idea is that language somehow pre-exists us and we just live in ready made words and ready made thoughts, which we can merely re-say and re-think. Deleuze thinks that this situation falsifies the world. In such a case literature is just repeating and recombining old things. What Deleuze thinks is that we can escape this danger of repetition by an increased conscience, which must gain some yardsticks. That is why we must try new unlikely pairings of words and constructions to escape the ready made ones, and to make something new and give a new meaning to this world.
