BeschreibungThis is the first truly representative selection of texts by Helene Cixous. The substantial pieces range broadly across her entire oeuvre, and include essays, works of fiction, lectures, and drama. Arranged helpfully in chronological order, the extracts span 20 years of intellectual thought and demonstrate clearly the development of one of the most creative and brilliant minds of the 20th century.
