A 'wilful extremist' according to the London Times, Hélène Cixous is hailed as one of the most formidable writers and thinkers of our time. Acclaimed by luminaries such as Jacques Derrida, her writing has nonetheless been misunderstood and misread, to a surprising extent. With the inclusion of Stigmata, one of her greatest works into the Routledge Classics series, this is about to change. Questions that have long concerned her – the self and the other, autobiographies of writing, sexual difference, literary theory, post-colonial theory, death and life – are explored here, woven into a stunning narrative. Displaying a remarkable virtuosity, the work of Cixous is heady stuff indeed: exciting, powerful, moving, and dangerous.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The ultra unscrutable feminist theorist' - "The New York Times" 'A literary critic, and a very intelligent one...a sort of French Susan Sontag.' - "The Financial Times" '"Stigmata's" sample of offerings brings the reader up to date with her current concerns [and] make[s] a worthwhile contribution to Cixous studies ... undoubtedly of value to those students, teachers and researchers who are interested in her rich body of writing.' - "Gill Rye, Women's Philosophy Review" 'HelA ne Cixous is in my eyes, today, the greatest writer in the French language. Stigmata is henceforth a classic. One of her most recent masterpieces.' - "Jacques Derrida"
