Stick It to de Man


This week’s Between the Covers podcast is with Evelyn Barish, author of The Double Life of Paul de Man. We discuss how a man who wrote anti-Semitic articles for a collaborationist newspaper in Belgium during the Second World War became a sensation among literature scholars in the United States, whether there’s a connection between de Man’s early life and his advocacy of deconstructionism, and why Barish calls him “an anti-hero of our times.”
