The subject inevitably becomes drawn into this underlying structure, “the vortex of hilarity and horror” as Stéphane Mallarmé has said. Julia Kristeva’s semanalysis, or scientific semiotics, can justifiably be considered one of the most important “French theories” of the 1960s, particularly in its focus on poetic language: We know for a fact that since antiquity the idealist tradition which defines today’s dominant ideology has been formed on the basis of two exclusions: on the one hand the exclusion of atomism and the materialism of antiquity, and on the other the exclusion of work from language, or, to put it more formally, the exclusion of poetic language (Kristeva, Glucksmann and Peytard 1970: 28).
Power here means a shift. Julia Kristeva changes the place of things: she always destroys the latest preconception (Barthes 1984: 197–200). D. defense, he refused to comment on Kristeva’s work (Buleu 1973: 15, Encrevé 1987). He regularly published reviews of Kristeva’s works in journals like Critique. 26 Radicalism in French Culture Since Kristeva was participating in Barthes’ seminar, it also became inevitable that she should meet Philippe Sollers, the leader of Tel Quel, and her future husband: When I arrived at EPHE and joined Barthes’s seminar, all they talked about was the Mallarmé lecture Philippe Sollers had just given.
In Lacan he was able to find essentially a way of integrating Freudian discourse into the entirety of his project. And finally, through Althusser, he was able to tinker with the bachelardian notion of an 22 Radicalism in French Culture epistemological break, which allowed him to situate the history of textuality within dialectical materialism. On the basis of that mix, which intended to be explosive, the history of literature was conceived through a series of textual ruptures, which could be grasped in the works of Sade, Bataille, Artaud (Roudinesco 1986a).
