Paul de Man (December 6, 1919 – December 21, 1983), born Paul Adolph Michel Deman, was a Belgian-born literary critic and literary theorist

Paul de Man (December 6, 1919 – December 21, 1983), born Paul Adolph Michel Deman, was a Belgian-born literary critic and literary theorist. At the time of his death, de Man was one of the most prominent literary critics in the United States-known particularly for his importation of German and French philosophical approaches into Anglo-American literary studies and critical theory.

Paul de Man (1919-1983) was a Belgian-born philosopher and literary critic . De Man's groundbreaking book on the subject, Blindness and Insight: Essays in the Rhetoric of Contemporary Criticism, was published in 1971.

Paul de Man (1919-1983) was a Belgian-born philosopher and literary critic who immigrated to United States after World War II, where he taught at various universities, most notably Yale. De Man was a leading proponent of the school of literary criticism known as deconstruction. Deconstructionists will take a text and contrast and compare it to other texts. As a result of the book and its success in academic circles, de Man's faculty at Yale University became the center of deconstructionist literary criticism in the United States.

De Man’s reputation suffered after 1988, when at a conference on de Man held in Antwerp his anti-Semitic essay of 1941 was discussed in a talk by Ortwin de Graef, a graduate student. Fearing that their careers and reputations were at stake, some academic followers of de Man acted in concert, refusing to discuss him with the press or, in some cases, with other scholars. Others contributed to an anthology, Responses: On Paul de Man’s Wartime Journalism (1989).

Notoriety struck the Belgian-born literary critic Paul de Man more than once. First came his fame as one of the principal—and most controversial—theorists of deconstruction in the 1970s and early 1980s. After his death in 1983, notoriety struck a second time. In 1987, a Belgian scholar discovered that de Man had written in the early 1940s for several journals that collaborated with the Nazis during the German occupation of Belgium. The revelations precipitated debates that have yet to subside. The scholar who set loose this furor was Ortwin de Graef, who has since embarked on a comprehensive survey of de Man’s writings. The first book, Serenity in Crisis, covered de Man’s career from 1939 to 1960. Titanic Light examines de Man’s work from the 1960s. Titanic Light concentrates on de Man’s increased interest during the 1960s in Romantic (and post-Romantic) literature and criticism. De Graef follows in detail de Man’s strong readings of the works of Hölderlin, Rousseau, and Wordsworth. He connects de Man’s interpretations of these and other writers with his earlier critical works and his later deconstructive writings. In addition, de Graef places de Man’s essays from the 1960s (some later collected in the influential volume Blindness and Insight) in the context of the critical debates of that era—debates about structuralism, Marxism, phenomenology, American New Criticism, and other critical schools. The result is a penetrating portrait of a critic who, during the sixties, reached full maturity as an interpreter of literature and contemporary criticism. Combining sympathy and skepticism for its subject, Titanic Light continues what is already the most insightful, thorough, and balanced examination of de Man’s intellectual career.
