From "Poetics"

By Keston Sutherland.

[According to Schultz,] Bernstein is “radical” because he is one of those postmodernists able “to reject [his] mirror image and to yearn for dispersal rather than for a totalizing image of the self.” (68). Narcissism bad, Roland Barthes Trans. Richard Howard good: those of us whose mirror images are obstinately unrejectable will perhaps be the among the most admiring of how Bernstein yearns.
