"Krell creates a remarkable interplay of meanings, allusions, and connotations-an interplay of multiple resonance which is finely tuned to Derrida's thought and which makes his essay as artful as it is conceptually disciplined. He is surely one of the most astute translators and readers in contemporary Continental thought." -Charles E. Scott
