Book Description

26 May 1987 Gender and Culture Series
Does gender have a poetics: What difference does gender make? How does it affect writing, reading, and the functions of text in society? The Poetics of Gender is a brilliant assembly of leading feminist critics whose collective effort presents the most up-to-date research on these important issues. The range of techniques and theories represented here are applied across a broad spectrum of texts and cultural forms, extending from women's writing of the Renaissance and the fiction of George Sand to the relation between quiltmaking and nineteenth-century literary forms, the pornography of Georges Bataille, and the theories of Julia Kristeva.

5.0 out of 5 stars Again a Thoughtful Criticism of Women's Roles in Literature 12 Sep 2006
By Theodore Greenwood - Published on Amazon.com
Nancy K. Miller is best known for The Heroine's Text: Readings in the French and English Novel, 1722-1782, which is clearly not a book that passes unperceived (to paraphrase Peter Brooks of Yale). Here Miller takes on the role of women in a much larger timeline (roughly from the Renaissance through the 19th century), again with her unsentimental criticism. Her style is terse, often funny, and readable. After a thorough linear analysis of a narrative sequence, she discusses the ideological consequence of the novel. Because she doesn't have an axe to grind, her critiques cannot be dismissed as "feminist" but rather bring added depth to the study of the novel.
