Interruption even releases an infinite movement. (“Rams,” 145–6) More than just a description, these lines declare admiration for Gadamer’s readiness to let the poem interrupt and “undecide” his reading. As such, they declare as well that this vigilance, “ready to embark on a wholly other path,” is the attention that the reader Derrida himself seeks to bring to bear, “listening faithfully, giving ear” to an interruption. “Giving ear” translates here “tendant l’oreille,” to prick up one’s ears, to listen for a sound or a voice, more literally, to stretch out or tense the ears in some direction.

Above all, any such accounting—a hundred, two hundred, five hundred—presumes that the genre “interview” is a self-evident one, and therefore easily discernable from every other genre of writing, speaking, or engaging with interlocutors. But this assumption and its attendant or supporting presuppositions encounter serious challenges in all of Derrida’s work, challenges that are not only theoretical, as we say, but quite practical.
