Such writing has been perceived as unrelated, as disrespectful of subjectivity. yet Everybody's Autonomy in its place locates inside of avant garde literature types of identification which are communal, connective, and racially involved. Everybody's Autonomy, because it tackles literary criticism's significant query of what kind of selves do works create, seems at works that inspire connection, works that current and have interaction with huge, public worlds which are in flip shared with readers. With this motive, it aligns the iconoclastic paintings of Gertrude Stein with international, immigrant Englishes and their accompanying subjectivities. It examines the critique of white individualism and privilege within the paintings of language writers Lyn Hejinian and Bruce Andrews. It appears to be like at how Harryette Mullen mixes language writing's open textual content with the distinctivesness of African-American tradition to suggest a communal, but nonetheless racially awake identification. And it examines Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's use of damaged English and French to unsettle readers' fluencies and assimilating comprehensions, to decolonize studying.
