Example text

Foucault here differentiates between a ‘language that says POLITICS OF IMAGES AND BODY 35 nothing, is never silent, and is called “literature”’ (1970:306) and discourse —discourse, that is, in the sense of a unity of general grammar in accordance with the model of simple representation such as pertained in the Classical age. He understands literary language as a kind of counterdiscourse (p. 44), and thus literature as the reappearance of language ‘in a multiplicity of modes of being, whose unity was probably irrecoverable’, of language ‘in an enigmatic multiplicity’ (1970:304, 305).
