Stigmata, H, Cixous

Stigmata, H, Cixous

Advertisements

Acclaimed for her intricate and challenging writing style, Cixous presents a collection of texts that get away — escaping the reader, the writers, the book. Cixous’s writing pursues authors such as Stendhal, Joyce, Derrida, and Rembrandt, da Vinci, Picasso — works that share an elusive movement in spite of striking differences. Along the way these essays explore a broad range of poetico-philosophical questions that have become characteristic of Cixous’ work:
* love’s labours lost and found
* feminine hours
* autobiographies of writing
* the prehistory of the work of art

Stigmata goes beyond theory, becoming an extraordinary writer’s testimony to our lives and times.
