It is of little matter if the concealing within realist textual systems represents the repression of patriarchy, racism, colonialism, psychoanalytic disavowal, or hegemonic capitalism. What is important for the argument in this essay is the recognition that concealment does occur, and that such concealment has attached upon it some sense of disavowal. This concealing expresses an economy of closure where it is a relatively simple task for the critical reader to demonstrate that what is concealed is that which threatens the imagined integrity of the work.
