Michael attacks some very complex and difficult theoretical issues while at the same time addressing the political ramifications on several levels. The book is well-researched, responsive to the work of others on these and allied issues, and makes an important contribution to the academic and literary discussions engaging scholars and writers today. Eleanor Honig Skoller, Adelphi University" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Michael analyzes the intersections between feminist politics and postmodern aesthetics as demonstrated in recent Anglo-American fiction. While much has been written on various aspects of postmodernism and postmodern fiction and of feminism and feminist fiction, very little attention has been given to the postmodern aesthetic strategies that surface in post-World War II feminist fiction. Feminism and the Postmodern Impulse examines ways in which many widely read and acclaimed novels with feminist impulses engage and transform subversive aesthetic strategies usually associated with postmodern fiction to strengthen their feminist political edge. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description
