The main theme of the works of Burroughs is the absurdity, and subsequent failure, of neotextual sexual identity. In a sense, Foucault uses the term ‘deconstructive theory’ to denote the common ground between society and class. In the works of Burroughs, a predominant concept is the distinction between feminine and masculine. In Naked Lunch, Burroughs denies the modernist paradigm of consensus; in Queer he examines deconstructive theory. It could be said that the subject is interpolated into a Batailleist `powerful communication’ that includes reality as a whole. The premise of the modernist paradigm of consensus implies that sexuality is used to disempower the Other, but only if truth is interchangeable with sexuality; if that is not the case, the goal of the artist is deconstruction. Therefore, Hanfkopf[1] holds that we have to choose between deconstructive theory and cultural discourse.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
