Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This innovative introductory text not only clearly explains Kristeva's most difficult ideas, but also provides new insights into her work. All Kristeva's key concepts are clearly explained, and new interpretations are offered of the "chora," "Oedipus" and "abjection," as well as "revolt" and the "feminine genius." Kristeva's intellectual development is set in historical and political context and the creative power of her work is also highlighted. Finally, the original interview reveals Kristeva's true intellectual and political aspirations.

Book News Annotation:

Lechte (sociology, Macquarie U.) and Margaroni (literary and cultural theory, U. of Cyprus) introduce students to the work of critic and theorist of contemporary culture Kristeva. They examine both her recent work since 1995, and earlier key works from the 1980s. An interview is included that was conducted in 2002 and 2003 in her office at the University of Paris.
