David Lesser

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article explores some of the aesthetic and epistemological issues raised by Earle Brown's work, in particular the topics of knowledge and identity raised in Twentyfive Pages. Reference is made to the literary theories of Jacques Derrida, and parallels are suggested between the listener's experience of a work like Twentyfive Pages and Derrida's exploration of reading and the concepts of differance and trace.
