Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume explores whether there can be a specific lesbian aesthetic, juxtaposed against reading as a 'woman' or as a 'heterosexual'. Contributors both explore the uses of recent theories such as post-structuralism and offer a lesbian critique of such methodologies. Close readings of contemporary lesbian fiction and popular culture focus on works such as "Zami, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, The Wanderground," and "Desert of the Heart" as well as on lesbian pornography. Together the essays point to lesbian culture's ability to create new meanings for iteself and to foreground the intertextuality of lesbian identities. Contributors: Sonya Andemahr, Lisa Henderson, Hilary Hinds, Katie King, Reina Lewis, Sally Munt, Gillian Spraggs, Angela Weir, Anna Wilson, Elizabeth Wilson, and Bonnie Zimmerman.

Book News Annotation:

Sort of a progress report on the work being done in lesbian criticism. Contributors both explore the uses of recent theories such as poststructuralism and offer a lesbian critique of such methodologies. Close readings of contemporary lesbian fiction and popular culture focus on works such as Zamie, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, The Wanderground, and Desert of the Heart, as well as on lesbian pornography.
