Sepúlveda Santos, Myrian (2002) Can We Tell Stories Out of Our Memories? The Contributions of Derrida and Benjamin. In: Narrative, Memory and Life Transitions. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 171-177.

The author draws from Jacques Derrida’s and Walter Benjamin’s writings on
memory in order to argue that as these two thinkers deal with the simultaneity
of the diachronic and synchronic dimension of time they open up the
possibility of thinking about the relation between memory and narrative in a
more complex way. These two theorists affirm the discontinuity and the nonrecognition
between past events and present discourses and show the danger of
conflating memory and narrative without the awareness of its limits.
