The article discusses the problem of homogenizing and hegemonizing (philosophical)
discourse by analysing the protocols of interpretation in postcolonial criticism
(Edward Said), literary theory (Jacques Rancière) and musicology (Theodor Adorno)
on two instances of novelistic literature/music: Mme Bovary of Gustave Flaubert and
Symphony no.3 of Gustav Mahler. The analysis, based on the concept of mortlavie
(Derrida) is centered on the (troubled) relation between the author (his life and death)
and the text (his work).
