Subversive Intent: Gender, Politics, and the Avant-Garde
by Susan Rubin Suleiman
Publisher's Description
Susan Suleiman, author The Female Body in Western Culture, has laid the foundation for a postmodern feminist poetics and theory of the avant-garde. She shows how the figure of Woman, as fantasy, myth, or metaphor, has functioned in the work of male avant-garde writers and artists of this century. Focusing also on women's avant-garde artistic practices, Suleiman demonstrates how to read difficult modern works in a way that reveals their political as well as their aesthetic impact.
