But the translator insists on a resistance to her own textual and critical authority. Spivak's preface to Of Grammatology has, for many readers, been a primer on deconstruction. If anecdote is to be credited, not all went on to read the book that it prefaces, or to read much of it. If, as one writes without thinking twice, Spivak's translation was a pivotal event in the history of Anglo-American literary theory, the erratic reception of the book that is Of Grammatology renders mysterious what that event was - and is, since its future is, in elusive ways, our present.
2 If postcolonial theory as it has taken shape in the writings of Spivak is a translation of deconstruction in the sense that Gallop thinks, then the implications of this 'translation' can be generalized beyond the reading and rereading of the seminal texts of French theory. ', it is Of Grammatology that leads her back to the Sanskrit archive and its errors of transcription and translation that lead to the locution: the sati wanted to die (see CPR 287). That is the archive upon which the colonial legal codification builds when it silences the female subaltern through an imperialist benevolence that Spivak, miming Freud's ' "A Child is Being Beaten" ', phrases as: 'White men are saving brown women from brown men' (CPR 284).

Yet there is a difference: that transformation is reciprocal; the original, on being revisited, will never be the same; it will no longer have a monopoly on transformation. After surveying Spivak's writing on Derrida as a way of entering into the idea of translation as a special case of reading, I will turn to her reflections on translating Devi and the ways in which they inform her conception of a new comparative literature. Spivak's Derrida Spivak has written illuminating commentaries on nearly all of Derrida's major works.
