Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An easily accessible introduction to Kristeva's work in English. The essays have been selected as representative of the three main areas of Kristeva's writing--semiotics, psychoanalysis, and political theory--and are each prefaced by a clear, instructive introduction. For beginners or those familiar with Kristeva's work this is a good complement to "The Portable Kristeva" with a convenient selection of articles from Kristeva's earlier work some of which are otherwise hard to come by.

Review:

"It has been apprarent for some time that Julia Kristeva has inherited the intellectual throne left vacant by the death of Simone de Beauvoir." Elaine Showalter

Synopsis:

Julia Kristeva is one of Europe's most brilliant and original theorists, widely acclaimed for her work in such diverse areas as linguistics, psychoanalysis, and literary and political theory. As a linguist, she has pioneered a revolutionary theory of the sign in its relation to social and political emancipation; as a practicing psychoanalyst, she has produced work on the nature of the human subject and sexuality of particular interest of feminists.
