Abstract

The essay examines several scenes of love in deconstruction, in an attempt to understand why Derrida claims to have ‘an empty head on love in general’, as he says in a film dedicated to his work. Beginning with ‘Romeo and Juliet’ up to Abraham’s sacrificial responsibility, the essay aims to interpret Derrida’s withdrawal to silence about love as enacting the erotic literary space of his own writing.
