Oxford Literary Review 34 (1):1-24 (2012)

This ‘fabulous’ essay sketches a hauntological bond of debts between Shakespeare and Derrida as a complex intertextual scene of translation across languages and literatures, times and cultures. Starting from Derrida's essay ‘What is a “Relevant” Translation?’, Cixous explores via numerous voices, cloaks and masks the spectral ‘visor effect’ of texts and languages concealing one another, or burrowing secretly underground like moles, in Derrida's Hamlet-like passion for the Bard.
