Carolyn Norman Slaughter’s study probes the ways that language “works” in the literature of five American modernist authors. Slaughter’s purpose, opposing the Derridean project of Deconstruction, is to recover the first-order importance and power of language, its radical effects, as set out in the philosophy of Martin Heidegger where language works to disclose, reveal, unfold (Erschließen).
