Summary
"In this study, Helen Tookey provides new readings of Nin through contemporary feminist approaches, focusing on the cultural and historical contexts in which her work was produced and received. Key issues and conflicts within feminist thinking since the 1970s - particularly around questions of identity, femininity, and psychoanalysis - are illuminated by this detailed contextualization of Nin's work. Anais Nin: Fictionality and Femininity makes an intervention into critical debates around modernism, feminism, and psychoanalysis, writing and identity, fictionality and femininity."--Jacket
