Abstract: Written on Derrida's "'Le Parjure,' Perhaps: Storytelling and Lying," this essay takes the concept of the anacoluthon from Derrida's text (as lie has done from J. Hillis Miller, as he did from Proust) and-commenting on the figure of the woman in this male lineage-further invents the concept of the anacoluthon by demonstrating]low its formal linguistic definition provides a model for the event of reading and writing of thinking-that Derrida so admires in Hillis Miller's work and practices in his own. By employing this same reading practice in its own thinking, this essay does not respond to Derrida's death in mourning, nor in thinking about mourning, but in the memory of thought. Produced out of Derrida's work, the essay remains faithful to him only by simultaneously being faithful and unfaithful, thereby enacting the agrammaticality of following represented in and by the anacoluthon.
