This is a special issue of the journal Paragraph. The last decade has seen a considerable growth of interest in Genet, now widely recognized as one of the most important French writers of the twentieth-century. From the very beginning, Genet attracted the attention of the major thinkers of his time, as witnessed by the volumes both Sartre and Derrida devoted to him. But recently his writing has proven a mine for readings informed by a whole variety of theories. Including Derrida's first text on Genet since Glas and spanning the spectrum from a Deleuzian study of the event to speech-act analysis and queer theorizations of Genetian power relationships, this collection of articles reflects the diversity of the theoretical approaches currently being applied to his work.
