contribution to that erotics, or, more soberly, a reading of our compulsions to read.


Notes
1.
One of the ambitions of NORTHROP FRYE in Anatomy of Criticism ( Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1957) is to provide such a typology in his mythoi. Yet there is in Frye a certain confusion between mythoi as plot structures and as myths or archetypes which to my mind makes his work less valuable than it might be.

On the 'text as machine' in Rousseau, and on the episode of the stolen ribbon as a whole, see the notable essay by PAUL DE MAN, "'The Purloined Ribbon,'" in Allegories of Reading ( New Haven: Yale University Press, 1979), pp. 278-301. While my use of the episode of the stolen ribbon is substantially different from de Man's, I am indebted to his remarkable analysis.
