Product Details

Praise

“Wittig ( The Lesbian Body ) is a key figure in French feminism, perhaps the foremost theorist of a profoundly radical lesbianism. Half of the nine essays in this brief collection deal directly with the politics of gender, a battlefield on which Wittig has staked out a nearly unique position: “There is no sex. There is but sex that is oppressed and sex that oppresses.”…As a result, these ostensibly literary essays offer the most cogent statement of her political beliefs and, consequently, the most satisfying reading.” 
—Publishers Weekly

“Wittig most brilliantly analyzes certain transformations in the textures and structures of literary language. The wonderful image of the role of literature as a Trojan horse is a gem of clarity and wit.”
—Germaine Brée
 
“At last it will be possible to have easy access to these provocative and important essays.”
—Elaine Marks, University of Wisconsin, editor of New French Feminisms
