Leslie Steiner will pique my interest. I haven't read Delany himself in many years, but reading the first few essays in this book has blown my mind. There are certain aspects of contemporary academic writing and ideology in the book, and the framing of academic concerns, that irritate me as always, but the observations of some of these authors give me something new to think about as well as to pinpoint my particular reactions to Delany, to reception of Delany, to subcultures, etc.
About the Book
I don't believe in the union of the criminal and the artist, by the way. That kind of thinking has got to go. I don't think that criminals stand in opposition to society at all. Real criminality is not remotely oppositional.

But there's the question of the potentials of the outsider perspective, explored by Wright in all his work from at least on. Delany, like Wright, is a highly civilzed man, though not a product of the dire circumstances of the latter, so that, whatever he has experienced in the Unlicensed Zone, he wouldn't do well with real criminals.
He's probably been around thugs, as I have, and hopefully he'd be smart enough to see them as the enemy.

Was not the criminality of one of the main characters due to his inarticulateness, his inability to conceptualize his experience? This factor changes the entire perspective. Once again on Richard Wright's THE OUTSIDER: another view of criminality is offered, for the main character, who is a "thought criminal" as well as a murderer though more by force of circumstance than real ill will , argues with the detective on his trail though the detective doesn't know it yet , who is also an outsider and thus also a "criminal", that outsiderness, is, in the definitional structure of society, criminality.

This perspectival criminality allows one to understand, and up to a point even identify with, actual criminality, but only in certain respects. There is also the ever-present threat of chaos. But the outsider perspective allows one to analyze, and hence structure, chaos. Open to the public ; University of Wollongong Library. Open to the public.
