      Paul de Man and Ethical Literary Criticism. (English)
    • Abstract:
      The article discusses Paul de Man's contribution to the ethical literary criticism. It briefly presents his discussion of literature and ethics on various occasions and focuses on the notorious passage from the Allegories of Reading, famous for its opacity. It examines a series of its interpretations and finally scrutinizes the most influential among them, proposed by Hillis Miller in The Ethics of Reading. It is demonstrated that all these interpretations miss the point of the passage in question, the main reason for this being non distinguishing between the two levels of ethics in de Man's treatise and consequently mistakenly merging them together. The article proposes a close reading of the passage. It also pays attention to lacunas in de Man's argumentation that additionally complicate the comprehension of the passage. In conclusion, the article states that due to its opacity and idiosyncrasy, de Man's conception of the ethics of tropes remains basically unapplied in the ethical literary criticism.

    • Abstract:
      Članek razpravlja o prispevku Paula de Mana k obravnavi literature z gledišča etike. Na kratko predstavi mesta iz njegovega opusa, ki se posvečajo tej temi, nato pa se osredini na najodmevnejše med njimi, odlomek iz Alegorij branja, razvpit zaradi svoje težavne razumljivosti. Na kratko pregleda niz interpretacij tega odlomka, natančneje pa se posveti zlasti najobsežnejši med njimi, ki jo je v Etiki branja opravil Joseph Hillis Miller. Ugotavlja, da nobena od razlag, vključno s Hillis Millerjevo, odlomka ne razume ustrezno. Poglavitni razlog za to vidi v tem, da interpretacije ne upoštevajo dveh ravni etike v de Manovi razpravi, temveč ju nereflektirano in zmotno istovetijo. Razprava ponuja glede tega natančnejše branje odlomka in opozarja na vrzeli v de Manovih izpeljavah, ki ustrezno razumevanje dodatno otežujejo. Članek se sklene z ugotovitvijo, da de Manov sicer dobro poznani zasnutek etike tropov oziroma literarno retorične etike zaradi svoje nejasnosti in idiosinkratičnosti ni doživel vidnejše produktivne aplikacije v etični literarni vedi.
