Abstract

Hélène Cixous's "The Flying Manuscript" turns around the chance rediscovery of a handwritten draft of the text by Jacques Derrida that would eventually become "A Silkworm of One's Own" and be published with Cixous's own "Savoir" in the volume titled Veils in 1997. Written after the disappearance of Derrida in 2004, the text is a moving tribute to the friend whom the author continues to address in the ongoing present of their long and rich dialogue.
