I had high hopes for a good documentary of Paul de Man, who is considered one of the best Literary Theorists in North America. Unfortunately, this was a huge disappointment, since Barish takes on a more tabloid style affront to de Man's past. Moreover, I spent a lot of time reading a roughly 500 page book only to find that he could hardly be accused of anything that other academics are also equally guilty of. I think this book is seeking to denigrate an important thinker, and I find it a sort of cheap shot. I do NOT recommend this slander piece. Also, the academic jargon is elitist to say the least.
