about

This is a collection of essays selected from papers given at conferences held at Wichita State University in 1986 and 1987. The literary works discussed were written in three languages, and originated in both Germanies, France, Canada, Spain, Guadeloupe, Senegal, Vald'Aoste, and Latin America from the early Renaissance to the 1980s. Both well-known writers and authors relatively unknown in the U.S. are presented. The themes and the methodologies informing their discussion vary from Wittgenstein's positivism to a discussion of silence as signifier; from archetypes to utopian consciousness; from seizing oral tradition's power of the word to a re-examination of the female rite of passage; from madness as a metaphor of powerlessness to prison imagery in Renaissance works.

Editorial Reviews

An important contribution to the field of women's writing in French, German, and Spanish....an excellent example of how feminist literary criticism is attempting to break out of the trap of eurocentrism and re-situate the issues of critical debate in a broader context.
