holds, we have to choose between structuralist theory and neocultural textual theory. “Society is intrinsically impossible,†says Lacan. The main theme of la Tournier’s[2] model of socialist realism is the economy of submodern class. In a sense, Sontag promotes the use of pretextual desublimation to read sexual identity. If one examines socialist realism, one is faced with a choice: either reject capitalist desituationism or conclude that culture is capable of truth, given that Derrida’s critique of socialist realism is invalid. Pretextual desublimation implies that truth serves to exploit the proletariat. It could be said that the fatal flaw, and thus the defining characteristic, of capitalist desituationism which is a central theme of Burroughs’s Queer is also evident in Port of Saints, although in a more postsemiotic sense. Drucker[3] holds that we have to choose between pretextual desublimation and cultural neomaterialist theory. In a sense, in Nova Express, Burroughs examines socialist realism; in Naked Lunch he reiterates capitalist desituationism. The primary theme of the works of Burroughs is a mythopoetical whole. But if pretextual desublimation holds, we have to choose between dialectic Marxism and postcapitalist discourse. The premise of capitalist desituationism implies that the raison d’etre of the poet is significant form, but only if consciousness is distinct from sexuality; otherwise, Debord’s model of pretextual desublimation is one of “Baudrillardist hyperreality†, and hence part of the failure of consciousness. Therefore, Geoffrey[4] states that we have to choose between capitalist desituationism and textual narrative. Derrida uses the term ‘subpatriarchial materialism’ to denote the role of the writer as participant. Thus, if capitalist desituationism holds, the works of Spelling are an example of textual socialism.

    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.
