Description

What are the political implications of a feminist critical practice?

How do the problems of the literary text relate to the priorities and perspectives of feminist politics as a whole?

Sexual/Textual Politics addresses these fundamental questions and examines the strengths and limitations of the two main strands in feminist criticism, the Anglo-American and the French, paying particular attention to the works of Cixous, Irigaray and Kristeva.

In the years since publication this book has rightly attained the status of a classic.

Written for readers with little knowledge of the subject, Sexual/Textual Politics nevertheless makes its own intervention into key debates, arguing provocatively for a commitedly political and theoretical criticism as against merely textual or apolitical approaches.

With a new afterword in this edition, Sexual/Textual Politics is a must-read for all those interested in feminist literary theory.
