Need help with my writing homework on Foucault Reflections on Authorship. Write a 1500 word paper answering; “The writing of our day has freed itself from the necessity of “expression”. it refers only to itself, yet is not restricted to the confines of interiority. On the contrary, we recognize it in its exterior deployment” (Foucault, 1977, p.124). Foucault’s point is that today it is easy to write because society has been liberated from the need to “explain” itself. It seems for Foucault that everything has been said, written, and commented and that the necessity to express oneself is not internally stimulated, but rather externally – we are required by society to deliver in a verbal way what we feel, believe, support, or disagree with. Therefore, writing is transformed into an interaction of symbols, signs governed less by the content it indicates than by the nature of the writer (Foucault, 1977).In “What is an Author” Foucault (1977) questions the modern process of writing and illustrates the value of reading. “The author – or what I have called the author-function – is undoubtedly only one of the possible specifications of the subject” (Foucault, 1977, p.138). The author here is described as author-fiction. We may say that this is a methodologically employed term to unite the writer with his literary creation. More particularly, Foucault (1977) outlines that in future researches there should be a “typology of discourse” (p.137). Foucault (1977) notes that this typology can not be understood solely in regards to its formal structures, objects of narrative, or grammatical features. There are logical properties that can not be reduced to the rules of grammar or other laws that rule language and objects.The methodological point here is that various .arrangements of author-function should assist to describe the different kinds of discourse. .For example, it might be proposed that the author is more than a physical performer, or a signifier, or an element of the speech. .
