The Author as the Living Dead

(Barthes’ Death of the Author: Zombie Horror and Literary Criticism)



Steven Erikson





There is probably no greater terror for a scholar of literary criticism discussing a work of fiction than to have its author sitting in the audience.  I’ve seen this often enough and I have great sympathy for their plight.  I can see the unease, the occasional timidity, the moments of diffidence, all of which substan

“Children are dying."
Lull nodded. "That's a succinct summary of humankind, I'd say. Who needs tomes and volumes of history? Children are dying. The injustices of the world hide in those three words.”
Steven Erikson, Deadhouse Gates

“Kallor shrugged. '[...] I have walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes,' [said Caladan Brood.] 'You never learn.”
Steven Erikson, Memories of Ice

“Tell me, Tool, what dominates your thoughts?'

'I think of futility, Adjunct.'
'Do all Imass think about futility?'

'Why is that?'

Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon
