Disabusing Women in the Old French Fabliaux provides a much-needed reevaluation of the role of women in the fabliaux. Spanning the late twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the fabliaux are short, ribald tales written in verse by mostly anonymous male authors. Their varied portrayals of female characters have traditionally been considered simply misogynistic. Despite recent scholarship contending that the fabliaux are not as anti-feminist as previously thought, there has been until now no

This is the first full-length study of the treatment of women in Dickens’ novels to make use of modern critical approaches. It replaces traditional biographical methods with a new linguistic model which directs attention back to the texts. Patricia Ingham’s innovatory approach characterises Dickens’ novelistic language by relating it to linguistic representations of women in contemporary non-fictional works (handbooks on womanly conduct, documentary works on prostitution, and Florence

Women Latin Poets addresses women's relationship to culture between the first century B.C. and the eighteenth century A.D. by studying women's poetry in Latin. Based entirely on original archival research in twelve countries, Stevenson recovers an aspect of history often deemed not to exist: women who achieved public recognition in their own time, sometimes to a startling extent. Presenting, often for the first time, the work of more than three hundred women Latin poets, all translated and

Language as the Site of Revolt in Medieval and Early Modern England: Speaking as a Woman makes the provocative argument that despite extensive evidence indicating a wholesale suppression of early women’s speech, women were actively engaged in cultural practices and speech strategies. M.C. Bodden ably demonstrates that not only did women have their own epistemologies, but they were also simultaneously complicit with patriarchal ideology and subversive in undermining that ideology. .

The nexus of psychoanalytic, literary, and philosophical approaches in this book focuses on an intertextual reading of Woolf and Kristeva in order to address the enigma of the persistent suppression of women's contributions to culture. In spite of the efforts of feminist theory and history to turn the tide, this process is with us still. ''I am the first of a new genus'' (Mary Wollstonecraft). ''When I looked around, I saw and heard of none like me'' (Mary Shelley). ''I look everywhere for

Sandian heroines swirl around men in their sororal and sartorial disguises like moths around candle flames. However, as Disguise in George Sand’s Novels illustrates, the disguise is not an instrument to seduce men but rather to assert the heroines’ true selves. The portrayal of female and androgynous protagonists in Rose et Blanche (1831), Indiana (1832), Lélia (1833/39), Gabriel (1839), Consuelo (1842), and La Comtesse de Rudolstadt (1844) is a metaphor to demonstrate the continuity of

How does Toni Morrison use language to represent race? Answering this question through literary criticism and linguistic research, this book shows how Morrison’s language reflects the souls of black folk in The Bluest Eye and Beloved. The book focuses on the way in which Morrison forces language to reveal what cannot be spoken by a «black» grammar. To achieve the breaking of this silence, Morrison uses rhetoric, voice, and narrative structures not conventionally used to achieve the effect

We celebrate Jane Austen as the mother of the English realist novel, but have you ever wondered why she insists on giving her mature heroines the ''perfect happiness'' that can only be realized in the romance? Romancing Jane Austen asks the reader to consider Austen's happy endings as a ''prophetic'' rather than merely ''illusory'' answer to the contradiction that feminine subjectivity represents for history.Used Book in Good Condition.

Controversy over gendered pronouns, for example using the generic ''he,'' has been a staple of feminist arguments about patriarchal language over the last 30 years, and is certainly the most contested political issue in Western feminist linguistics. Most accounts do not extend beyond policy issues like the official institution of non-sexist language. In this volume, Anna Livia reveals continuities both before and after the sexist language refore movement and shows how the creative practices of

This book provides a thorough examination of how both Marina Tsvetaeva and Boris Pasternak perceived Rainer Maria Rilke’s poetic persona and oeuvre in similar ways, and how, in their perception of Rilke’s role as that of the paradigmatic poet, they had drawn on the specifically Russian poetic paradigm, i.e., the image of Pushkin in the context of Russian literature of the Silver Age. At the same time, both poets’ scrutiny of the sublime, the mundane, and the tragic side of practicing

For years, both psychologists and the general public have been fascinated with the notion that there are gender differences in cognitive abilities; even now, flashy cover stories exploiting this idea dominate major news magazines, while research focuses on differences in verbal, mathematical, spatial, and scientific abilities across gender. This new volume in the Counterpoints series not only summarizes and addresses the validity (or invalidity) of such research, but also questions its ideology

Feminist critics have long considered language a primary vehicle for the transmission of sexist values in a culture. This much-needed sociolinguistic critique examines the representation of women in traditional Japanese language and culture. Derogatory and highly-sexualized terms are placed in historical context, and the progress of non-sexist language reform is reviewed. Central to this work are the individual voices of Japanese women who took part in a survey, expressing their candid thoughts
