“How can we understand this paradoxical privilege of speech over writing, of hearing over sight? What relationship thus exists between the power of speech and the power of the master?
Jacques Rancière, The Ignorant Schoolmaster, 1981

“…we know that to give writing its future, it is necessary to overthrow the myth: the birth of the reader must be at the cost of the death of the Author.”
Roland Barthes, The Death of the Author, 1967
