Summary
  • "This provocative, lively book discusses two of the most significant influences on writing and thinking in the twentieth century: women novelists and feminist theory. It demonstrates, in an accessible but imaginative manner, ways of reading women's novels alongside work by feminist theorists. Each chapter situates a number of theoretical texts in their intellectual context and then links them with a widely taught novel to produce fresh interpretations. Sections on 'theory into practice' and 'practice into theory' create dialogue between theory and novel and between text and reader."--Jacket
