The French idiom has had no more consistently or ardently inventive practitioners over the last forty years than Jacques Derrida and Hélène Cixous. This chapter focuses not just on the work of the one, the other, or both, but rather the one reading and writing on or about the other; one may begin to imagine how the appeal to the idiom has not merely to be doubled but raised exponentially. Although both Cixous and Derrida had signaled in various ways their attention to each other's writing since the early 1960s, it was several decades before they began lifting the seals on these reading relations in published texts.
