Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0748639039, Hardcover)

This major new collection of texts by Hélène Cixous brings together a range of important untranslated and previously unpublished essays. Cixous addresses literature, politics, history, Algeria, and the university, and shares her influential critiques of such authors as Joyce, Kleist, Stendhal, Kafka, and Shakespeare, as well as her contemporary writing on human rights and geo-politics. All essays are informed by Cixous's unique gift for combining a writer's love of idiom and life with a scholar's acute deconstructive eye. Her work constitutes an extended account of what Cixous calls "autobibliography," in which writing, theory, politics, and life combine to open up the world through critical reading and self-reflection. "I am on the side of life," writes Cixous. These essays affirm the intellectual's reputation as one of our greatest readers and sources of critique.
