Born in Algeria in 1937, Helene Cixous achieved world fame for her short stories, criticism, and fictionalized autobiography (Dedans, 1969). Her work quickly became controversial because it frankly tested a distinction between male and female writing. Her literary experiments and her conclusions make her one of the most stimulating and most elusive feminist theorists of our time.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A valuable exposition of Cixous's projects, showing their changing relation to the cultural and hisorical situation from which she writes."-Year's Work in English Studies * Year's Work in English Studies *
"[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 *
