I was interested in Bee's comment that Delany was using the language of poststructuralism in 1973, by employing the terms "signifier" and "signified". But these terms pre-dated poststructuralism. They were basic to Saussure's semiotic theory and in use well before 1973, so that it is no surprise to find Delany using them at this time, even before he began reading poststructuralism.
