    Default Re: deconstructing a text

    When you deconstruct a text, you take it apart to discover the underlying prejudices, the cultural assumptions, etc. Things, in other wordsa, outside the view of the author. So if yo deconstruct a political text, you would try not to show the view of the politican, but almost the opposite- what they were trying to hide, the assumptions that lead to their ideas, etc.
