Well put. As a fellow lit crit, I couldn't agree more. And as a lit crit who is looking to go to law school this fall, I am intensely interested in this debate over textual interpretation and the law. I'm aware of the critical theory movement -- though not well versed in it -- but I wonder: why is it still on the fringes of legal thought? (It seems to be, anyway -- maybe I'm wrong and it isn't.)

Coming from a lit crit background, I remain somewhat amazed that "originalism" and other versions of author-intent driven methods of interpretation are so prevalent and dominant in legal thought.

What gives?

And for someone like me, who is interested in an academic career, and who is coming at the law from that lit crit background (and therefore has strong sympathies/affinities for critical legal theory)...where is the best place to go to law school?
