Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863584322, Paperback)

A study in critical readership, this wide-ranging collection of essays challenges accepted theories on everything from classics such as Charlotte Brontë's Villette to more contemporary works like Margaret Atwood's Life Before Man. Explored are ideas of sexual subversion and queer politics. Literature's sacred cows are reevaluated, and new ways to explore both reading and writing are offered.
