hitherto prevalent (unmarked) fictocritical or (hyphenated) ficto- critical perspectives on textual theory, the issue included not only discursively consequential rhetorical effects of dominant generic forms, but also the equally discursively consequential performative effects of our textual practices. Taking its cue from both these realisations, my approach of the (slashed) ficto/critical has narrowed its focus onto the intersection between textual theory and critical praxis by proposing a critical theory of our textual practices in their relevance for the wider

is given a practical purpose and some ficto-critical edge when its im/mediate, self-reflexive, and performative insights are consta- tively connected to wider discursive issues, interests, and ethico-political motiva- tions. So, in a second step, this additional element of the strategically twofold ficto/critical pattern shall then be qualified, in Taussig’s terms, as an apotropaic kind of nervous system writing. On the other hand, such strategic textual interven- tions are based on ficto/critical theories that conceive of our textual practices – their

intellectual categories ( certainties) of modemity are called into question and recoded. Feminist and post-feminist, Marxist and post-marxist, modemist and post-modernist, humanist and post-humanist, historieist and post- historicist, gendered and post-gendered analytic and theoretic modes of discourse step by step refashion a dialogic space that begins to appear post-critical.

academic’s assertion of meaning and the narrator’s performance are paired as oppo- sites: ‘either you fail to be moved by the text (by asking what it means, you don’t let it work), or the text moves you (by not asking what it means, you let it work). The fictocritical effect is to combine the fantastic transformations of fiction with critical theory.” (2001: 113) In this sense, such texts function like picture puzzles in which both figures are simultaneously on display and at work. Juxtaposing their respective parameters and orientation, the figures bring each

exemplary ficto-critical texts in order to explicate, illustrate, and define the crucial tropical pattern further. Ultimately, though beyond the scope of the present thesis, it will be productive to identify clusters of both ficto-critical insights and ficto-critical concerns that, in relating to their respective counterparts, instantiate conspicuous patterns of the fully-fledged trope. In this manner, a systemic ficto-critical theory of our textual practices could eventually become an ordering principle of different ficto-critical impetus across the re
