Explorations In Contemporary Feminist Literature

Using the presentation of transgendered (female to male) characters by women writers as a jumping off point, Pernal (women's literature and creative writing, Teikyo-Post U.) explores how Toni Morrison, Rose Tremain, Maya Angelou, and other women writers confront issues of marginality in consciously ideological and personal ways. Although the position of transgendered people is the starting point the analysis is expanded to encompass wider issues of gender, race, and class. The entire effort is geared towards promoting an understanding of feminism as a focal point in the battle against all oppression. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Contemporary Feminist Life-Writing is the first volume to identify and analyse the 'new audacity' of recent feminist writings from life. Characterised by boldness in both style and content, willingness to explore difficult and disturbing experiences, the refusal of victimhood, and a lack of respect for traditional genre boundaries, new audacity writing takes risks with its author's and others' reputations, and even, on occasion, with the law. This book offers an examination and critical assessment of new audacity in works by Katherine Angel, Alison Bechdel, Marie Calloway, Virginie Despentes, Tracey Emin, Sheila Heti, Juliet Jacques, Chris Krauss, Jana Leo, Maggie Nelson, Vanessa Place, Paul Preciado, and Kate Zambreno. It analyses how they write about women's self-authorship, trans experiences, struggles with mental illness, sexual violence and rape, and the desire for sexual submission. It engages with recent feminist and gender scholarship, providing discussions of vulnerability, victimhood, authenticity, trauma, and affect.

The Victorian Woman Question in Contemporary Feminist Fiction explores the representation of Victorian womanhood in the work of some of today's most important British and North American novelists including A.S. Byatt, Sarah Waters, Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter and Toni Morrison. By analysing these novels in the context of the scientific, religious and literary discourses that shaped Victorian ideas about gender, it contributes to an important inter-disciplinary debate. For while showing the power of these discourses to shape women's roles, the novels also suggest how individual women might challenge that power through their own lives.

In dit boek wordt de relatie tussen gender en lezen/interpretatie onderzocht. De auteurs gaan er niet van uit dat vrouwen per definitie anders lezen dan mannen. Ze onderzoeken veeleer wanneer gender wel en niet een verschil maakt in de interpretatie. Daarbij worden zowel etnografische, linguistische als literair-theoretische methoden gehanteerd.
