Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hélène Cixous is among the most influential and original literary critics and feminist thinkers of our time. This volume reproduces - for the first time, in any language - a collection of pages from her original writing notebooks, offering a unique insight into her radical thought and work. The material gathered here ranges across the full spectrum of Cixous' writing, including the concept of écriture féminine, and the starting points and sources of inspiration for her poetry and prose.

The editor's introduction succinctly outlines the central tenets of Cixous' theory of writing. Each extract is accompanied by editorial commentary and a translation, both by Susan Sellers. The book concludes with an interview with Cixous herself, in which she discusses the writing process, her own criticism, fiction and poetry and the value and importance of these notebooks. Students and teachers of literature, psychoanalysis, philosophy and feminist theory will find this an illuminating and inspiring collection of writings.

Edited by Susan Sellers, Professor of English and Related Literature at the Univeristy of St Andrews.

Synopsis:

Helene Cixous is one of the most brilliant and radical of contemporary theorists. This is the first publication in any language of Cixous' own Notebooks, illustrating the concept of "ecriture feminine" and offering new insights into Cixous' theoretical insistence on writing and her own practice as a writer. Cixous' Notebooks exemplify how writing creates unique possibilities for circumventing the mistruths that shape us as subjects and which organize our relations with the world. The Writing Notebooks opens with an introduction which outlines the central points of Cixous' notion of writing. The main body of the work is comprised of 60 photographic extracts from the Notebooks, each extract accompanied by editorial annotation and a translation into English. The book concludes with a new interview with Cixous on the value of the Notebooks, the process of writing and her own fiction. Cixous' Notebooks will be invaluable to students of literature, psychoanalysis, philosophy and feminism.
