MacCarthy's ethics of readership may have privileged impressionistic response, the ear of the other, as Derrida might have termed it in one of his roundtables, but it is the stylistic virtuosity with which MacCarthy brought imaginative literature and its criticism to the listening public, thereby calling for their response, that overshadows the equally earnest and ethical but far less audiogenic contributions of E.
