Jacques Derrida is an Algerian born French phenomenologist, who is no doubt understood for his theory of deconstruction. He got his honorary doctorate in 1992. His prominence is ascribed to the obscure, troublesome, difficult language and complex style in his expositions. Deconstruction, defined by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, is a post-structuralist movement. It is a method for perusing which uncovers the inconsistencies and mysteries in the consistent structures of philosophical and artistic writings. This method is utilized as a part of the exploration as an apparatus to critically break down the deconstructive procedures that a writer has utilized in some of his works. The exposition gives a short prologue to Derrida, Deconstruction and Post-structuralism.

Keywords: Derrida, Deconstruction, Post-Structuralism, Phenomenology, Literary Theory, Literary criticism.
