About this product
- DescriptionHow does reading literature change our life? How does it change the way we see each other? In what ways can reading impact on who we are and what we will become? Drawing creatively on major theorists from French and Anglo-American feminisms through psychoanalysis, sociology and psychology to contemporary literary theory, the author articulates reading as a process of change. Relations between text and reader, individual and collective identities, self and other, are thought through in a sustained development of a politics of reading based on the model of the dialogue. Without losing sight of diversity and subjectivity in reading, this book explores the transformative potential of literature through themes of loss, maternity and difference in original readings of some post-1980 French fiction. Anglophone readers are introduced to the rich oeuvre of Christiane Baroche and to the accessible yet thought-provoking vels of Paule Constant (winner of the 1998 prix Goncourt) as well as to new critical analyses of Helene Cixous's later fictions.
