We salivate in our hunger for meaning

Interpretive closure always violates textual indeterminacy, if authority is perhaps fundamentally non-textual, reducing to identity what should remain different, There are those out there (Barbara Johnson)’ whose work could best be summarized as an attempt to delay the inevitable reductionist desire for meaning.

Johnson argues that reading is not the task of grasping the true single meaning of a text, but of grasping its multiple meanings, which are often unstable and contradictory. This polysemythe coexistence of many possible meanings for a word or phrase.
 has allowed feminist and marginalized readers to enter texts at the locations where the author tries to "dominate, erase, or distort" the various "other" claims that are made through language and reassert their identities.
