Format: Paperback
This amazing books gives readers the ability to scrutinize literary texts from a feminist perspective. Cixous clearly lays out her arguments and offers a unique perspective on the struggle of woman and how she is seen by the rest of the world. This book is a must for any Women's Studies or English major.
