Helene Cixous: Writing the Feminine (Expanded Edition) (Paperback)Verena Andermatt Conley (author)
- We can order this
Verena Andermatt Conley, a professor of French and women's studies at Miami University, has written the first full-length study of Cixous in English. Looking at Cixous as writer, teacher, and theoretician, Conley takes up Cixous's ongoing exploration of the "feminine" as related to the "masculine"-words not to be equated with "woman" and "man"-and her search for a terminology less freighted with emotion and prejudgment. Conley has updated this paperback edition with a new preface, bibliography, and interview with Cixous conducted by the editors of Hors Cadre.

"[This book] serves the useful purpose-for English readers-of setting out the detailed trajectory of Cixous's writing career, describing her texts (both 'fiction' and 'theory') without any attempt at crude paraphrase, and placing her ideas in a wider . . . context."-Christopher Norris, London Review of Books -- Christopher Norris * London Review of Books *
