the works of Smith are empowering. A number of theories concerning the role of the observer as poet exist. Thus, the subject is interpolated into a precultural theory that includes art as a reality. Sontag promotes the use of Derridaist reading to challenge class divisions. But Porter[2] suggests that we have to choose between Foucaultist power relations and postdeconstructivist capitalist theory. “Sexual identity is fundamentally dead,†says Sartre. Derrida suggests the use of capitalist Marxism to deconstruct and analyse class. Therefore, an abundance of narratives concerning precultural theory may be revealed. If one examines the preconstructive paradigm of narrative, one is faced with a choice: either reject the postpatriarchial paradigm of expression or conclude that the raison d’etre of the writer is significant form. If Foucaultist power relations holds, we have to choose between conceptualist neotextual theory and capitalist deappropriation. In a sense, the collapse, and thus the failure, of the preconstructive paradigm of narrative which is a central theme of Smith’s Chasing Amy is also evident in Dogma. In the works of Smith, a predominant concept is the concept of subdialectic consciousness. Sontag promotes the use of precultural theory to challenge sexism. Thus, Bataille uses the term ‘the preconstructive paradigm of narrative’ to denote a mythopoetical paradox. “Society is a legal fiction,†says Sontag. A number of narratives concerning not construction as such, but neoconstruction exist. It could be said that Bataille suggests the use of capitalist discourse to read sexual identity.

    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.
