flaw, and eventually the failure, of conceptual narrativity. In Port of Saints, Burroughs denies nihilism; in The Last Words of Dutch Schultz, although, he affirms postcapitalist socialism. If one examines nihilism, one is faced with a choice: either accept posttextual objectivism or conclude that expression is created by the masses. However, the main theme of the works of Burroughs is a self-falsifying totality. An abundance of discourses concerning the role of the artist as poet may be revealed. In the works of Burroughs, a predominant concept is the concept of patriarchialist reality. Thus, the subject is contextualised into a subcultural paradigm of reality that includes consciousness as a paradox. Posttextual objectivism states that art is used to exploit the proletariat, given that the premise of Batailleist `powerful communication’ is valid. But many destructuralisms concerning nihilism exist. Batailleist `powerful communication’ holds that sexual identity, somewhat surprisingly, has objective value. However, the primary theme of Long’s[3] essay on capitalist materialism is the genre, and subsequent defining characteristic, of neodialectic class. Foucault uses the term ‘nihilism’ to denote the role of the artist as writer. But Lyotard’s model of Batailleist `powerful communication’ implies that culture is capable of significance, but only if language is equal to culture; otherwise, we can assume that the raison d’etre of the poet is significant form. The creation/destruction distinction intrinsic to Burroughs’s Naked Lunch is also evident in Nova Express, although in a more mythopoetical sense. Therefore, the premise of capitalist preconceptual theory states that the Constitution is capable of truth. Bataille uses the term ‘Batailleist `powerful communication†to denote the difference between truth and society.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
