They Aren't, Until I Call Them: Performing the Subject in American Literature (Paperback)Enikoe Bollobas (author)
- We can order this
This book deals with two widely argued issues in literature criticism today, performativity and subjectivity. How do people become who they are? What scripts do they follow when they "do" gender, race, and sexuality? Tying into speech act theories and subjectivity theories, as well as gender, race, and sexuality studies, the author explores - through the close reading of several American texts - the many ways words make "things" in literature.
