“Taggart presents a sophisticated phenomenology of reading; his writing remains personal while well-informed by recent developments in critical theory. As both a personal and philosophical record of a sustained reading, Taggart’s work is noteworthy (and praiseworthy) for his non-suppression of the personal and for the honesty of his reading.” Hank Lazer, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa
Remaining in Light: Ant Meditations on a Painting By Edward Hopperby John Taggart
This is the first sustained, critical examination of the work of Edward Hopper, a major twentieth-century American painter. It is a sequence of meditations on his painting “A Woman in the Sun.” Each meditation, informed by Derrida’s conception of the supplement, is about both the painting and about the nature of the reading process.
