Reading is not passive reception but productive activity. “Some” feminist readers apparently took the materials at hand and came up with a different possible meaning. This reading focused on a male critic whose engagement with feminism seemed less than impressive: the discussion on “p. 14 above and p. 252 below” amounts to one phrase in each location. These readers then saw images of female nudes being used to flesh out a discussion of something other than gender, and reached their own conclusions about the message being sent.
Only by reconceiving the category on such broad terms can texts by Others be understood as an alternative reading of the crisis of the subject that white, male postmodernists address. Then the more hopeful account of politicized action that can be read in these texts can be seen not only as a strategy of the marginalized—although this is, in itself, important—but as a model of the political uses of texts and reading in a postmodern world. A periodizing account of postmodernism can also explain why reading is emblematic of all political activity under postmodern conditions.

Postmodernism, whether in the Bonaventure or in an Acker novel, does not mean the loss of all narratives but the rejection of one, privileged narrative. Jameson’s method of reading postmodernism, as it emerges in this case study, ends up producing the very object it criticizes, a generalized and indiscriminate condition of otherness.
