— Appears in: Westerly , November vol. 63 no. 2 2018; (p. 56-67)

'In 'The Death of the Author', Roland Bathes develops a post-structuralist approach to the issues of reading, writing, and the relationship between texts and the signs that comprise them. Barthes begins the paper with an illustration of the novella Sarrasine by Honore de Balzac, in which a castrato is disguised as a woman, and of whom Balzac writes the following sentence :'This was woman herself, with her sudden fears, her irrational whims, her instinctive worries, her impetuous boldness, her fussings, and her delicious sensibility' (Balzac in Barthes 142).

— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 29 no. 1 2015; (p. 129-143)
'Guanglin explores Walter Benjamin's The Task of the Translator, wherein the German critic famously shifts the problem of translation against the Western mimetic tradition. Instead of a concern with the original being reproduced, Benjamin posits an event between languages. Moreover, Benjamin's Passagenwerk or Arcades Project demonstrates the mode of assembling and disassembling networked fragments. Elsewhere in Benjamin, the "cities" acquire the significance of palimpsest to be read. The Arcades Project, which would be posthumously edited and was never given a completed form, takes nineteenth-century Paris as a testing ground and site of emergence of modern techno-history. Among other things, Guanglin examines Shanghai Dancing, which serves this role in Brian Castro's writing.' (Publication summary)
