    Earthsea: The Earthsea Novels of Ursula Le Guin


    ...

    by Jeremy Mark Robinson

    Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea books consist of A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, The Farthest Shore, Tehanu, Tales From Earthsea and The Other Wind. There are short stories too, which explore aspects of the Earthsea cosmos.
    This’s some of the finest writing in contemporary fantasy fiction. A rock-solid prose style, clear, earthy, sensual, simple, very poetic, and such a pleasure to read. In the Earthsea  books, Le Guin is absolutely in control, at the top of her game. She is a master storyteller. There isn’t any fantasy writing better than this. One gets the impression that the narrator of her books is a strong personality, an independent thinker, very tough and worldly wise, honest and humble, and also compassionate. The story, in the first book, A Wizard of Earthsea, of how young Ged becomes a wizard on the wizard island of Roke, is as good any you’ll find of an apprenticeship in magic and shamanism. Le Guin’s prose is totally confident as she depicts how the peasant boy from the sticks and the wrong side of the tracks becomes one of the most powerful wizards in the Roke School (and ultimately the greatest mage of them all).
     

    Jeremy Robinson's books include Glorification: Religious Abstraction in Renaissance and 20th Century Art (1990), Rimbaud (1992), Lawrence Durrell (1995) and Detonation Britain: Nuclear War in the UK (1997). He edits two magazines, Passion and Pagan America (a journal of American poetry).

    Andrea Dworkin


    ....

    by Jeremy Mark Robinson

    A very powerful feminist and public speaker, Dworkin is the author of the highly influential book Pornography: Men Possessing Women, of which Mary Daly wrote: 'An original, brilliant, courageous work combining massive and precise research with incisive analysis.' Cited by many feminists, often in passing, often in a negative light, Dworkin has rarely been the subject of a full-length treatment, as here. This book sympathetically and critically surveys the chief themes of Dworkin's polemical feminism, including her anti-pornography stance; the controversial bill of rights; sexual politics; and literary æsthetics. Robinson links Dworkin to French feminism, queer, gay and lesbian theory, Anglo-American feminism, and American literature.

    'It's amazing for me to see my work treated with such passion and respect.' (Andrea Dworkin)
     

    Jeremy Robinson's books include Glorification: Religious Abstraction in Renaissance and 20th Century Art (1990), Rimbaud (1992), Lawrence Durrell (1995) and Detonation Britain: Nuclear War in the UK (1997). He edits two magazines, Passion and Pagan America (a journal of American poetry).

    I am more reckless now than when I started out because I know what everything costs and it doesn't matter. I have paid a lot to write what I believe to be true. On one level, I suffer terribly from the disdain that much of my work has met. On another, deeper level, I don't give a fuck.

    (Andrea Dworkin, from Letters From a War Zone)
     

    The women's movement is like other political movements in one important way. Every political movement is committed to the belief that there are certain kinds of pain that people should not endure. They are unnecessary. They are gratuitous. They are not part of the God-given order. They are not biologically inevitable. They are acts of human will. They are acts done by some human beings to other human beings.

    (Andrea Dworkin, from "Feminism: An Agenda")


     


    Cixous, Irigaray, Kristeva

    The Jouissance of French Feminism


    ...

    by Kelly Ives

    As writers, philosophers, speakers and feminists, Julia Kristeva, Hélène Cixous and Luce Irigaray are among the most provocative, subtle and illuminating voices in contemporary culture. Their concepts and methodologies continue to excite debate and contention among feminists and cultural critics. Ives discusses their major ideas, which include: jouissance and 'explosive' sexuality; women and marginality; the 'gift'; the pre-oedipal chora and semiotic realm; labial lips that embrace; social oppression; the relations between writing, language and identity; and the politics of gender, patriarchy and motherhood. Ives studies the relation of Cixous, Irigaray and Kristeva to other feminists, and to figures such as Nietzsche, de Beauvoir, Hegel, Marx, Joyce, Derrida, Barthes, Rimbaud, Lacan and Freud.
    A useful guide to some of the key ideas of the three French philosophers and feminists, Julia Kristeva, Luce Irigaray and Hélène Cixous (though none of them were born in France). They all have highly individual approaches to philosophy and feminism - and sometimes quite eccentric ideas. They also don’t write like anyone else - Cixous in particular is a very poetic writer, and a very beautiful and emotional writer, too.
    Cixous, Irigaray and Kristeva have all written an enormous amount of material, and it can be daunting trying to absorb all of their many books. This study looks at some of their important ideas, and some of their more unusual views.

    Kelly Ives teaches women's studies and feminist theory at the University of California. Her books include Reading the Silences (1988), on writers such as Jane Austen, Emily Bronte and Virginia Woolf, Lesbian Tracks (1991), on lesbianism in pop music, Wild Zones: Pornography, Art and Feminism (Crescent Moon, 1994) and Cixous, Irigaray, Kristeva: The Jouissance of French Feminism (Crescent Moon 1996).

    For her joyous benefits she is erogenous; she is the erotogeneity of the heterogeneous: airborne swimmer, in  flight, she does not cling to herself; she is dispersible, prodigious, stunning, desirous and capable of others, of the other woman that she will be, of the other woman she isn’t, of him, of you.

    by Kelly Ives

    Julia Kristeva is a highly influential French philosopher and writer whose work encompasses semiotics; linguitics; women in China; modern America; the intellectual or dissident; concepts such as the power of horror; abjection; melancholy; and the chora or 'semiotic, pre-oedipal realm'; the Madonna and maternal world; and avant garde modernists such as Artaud, Joyce, Mallarme and Beckett

    Nights of wakefulness, scattered sleep, sweetness of the child, warm mercury in my arms, cajolery, affection, defenceless body, his or mine, sheltered, protected. A wave swells again, when he goes to sleep, under my skin - tummy, thighs, legs: sleep of the muscles, not of the brain, sleep of the flesh. The wakeful tongue quietly remembers another withdrawal, mine: a blossoming heaviness in the middle of the bed, of a hollow, of the sea...

    (Julia Kristeva, from "Stabat Mater")

    Luce Irigaray

    Lips, Kissing, and the Politics of Sexual Difference


    ...

    by Kelly Ives

    An exploration of the often controversial French thinker and feminist. Ives discusses Irigaray's relation with Nietzsche, Freud, Lacan, and other feminists. Irigaray's provocative notions include: labial lips embracing; sexual difference; the speculum; 'sexuate rights' and sexual ethics; women's language and power; angels; and female mystics.
    Luce Irigaray was born in 1932 in Belgium. Irigaray was, famously, a member of the Ecole Freudienne, presided over by Jacques Lacan. Irigaray's dissertation (Speculum de l'autre femme, later published) created some controversy among the members of the Freudian School, and Irigaray became an outcast of the ecole freudienne.
    During the 1970s and 1980s, Luce Irigaray taught at Rotterdam, Bologna, Toronto and Paris, among other places. With books such as Ce Sexe qui n'en est pas un, Et l'une ne bouge pas sans l'autre, Amante Marine: De Friedrich Nietzsche, Sexes et parentes, Sexes et genres a travers les langues and Le Oubli de l'air: Chez Martin Heidegger, Irigaray became a major philosopher.

    She is indefinitely other in herself... [women] are already elsewhere than in the discursive machinery where you claim to take them by surprise. They have turned back within themselves, which does not mean the same thing as within yourself’. They do not experience the same interiority that you do and which perhaps you mistakenly presume they share.

    (Luce Irigaray, from This Sex Which Is Not One)
     
     



     
     

    Hélène Cixous I Love You

    The Jouissance of Writing


    ...

    by Kelly Ives

    Hélène Cixous is a challenging and lyrical French feminist and writer, author of the influential esay "The Laugh of the Medusa" and (with Catherine Clément) The Newly-Born Woman. Cixous is immensely productive, writing novels, plays, essays and poetic prose. Her ideas have provoked much debate in feminism: on the body, orgasmic writing, 'feminine' texts ('écriture féminine'), essentialism and the Nietzschean 'gift'.
    Hélène Cixous was born in Oran, Algeria, on June 5, 1937. She studied at the Universite de Bordeaux, the Sorbonne, and the new, experimental post-1968 Universite de Paris VIII-Vincennes, which is now at Saint Denis. Her doctoral thesis, L'Exil de James Joyce ou l'art du remplacement, was published in 1968. Her best known works are The Newly Born Woman (written with Catherine Clement) and the the essay "The Laugh of the Medusa" (both 1975).
    By 1991 Hélène Cixous had written some 50 novels, plays, and texts. She has been aligned with the French publishing house Des Femmes, and collaborated with the Theatre du Soleil (Cixous has worked for years with the theatre director Ariane Mnouchkine).

    Almost everything is yet to be written by women about femininity: about their sexuality, that is, its infinite and mobile complexity, about their eroticization, sudden turn-ons of a certain miniscule-immense area of their bodies; not about destiny, but about the adventure of such and such a drive, about trips, crossings, trudges, abrupt and gradual awakenings, discoveries of a zone at one time timorous and soon to be forthright. A woman’s body, with its thousand and one thresholds of ardor...

    Emily Dickinson

    Wild Nights: Selected Poems


    ...

    selected and introduced by Miriam Chalk

    One of the most extraordinary poets of any era, Dickinson wrote a huge amount of poetry (nearly 2,000 poems). This new edition ranges from her early work to the late pieces.
    Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886) was born in Amherst, MA. Much of her later life was led in privacy, in the family home in Massachusetts. For some, she was a recluse, famous among locals for wearing white clothes, seldom travelled, preferred correspondence to meeting people in the flesh, and was known for talking to visitors thru a door. She wrote nearly 1800 poems, but only a few were published during her lifetime.
    The poetry of Emily Dickinson is among the strangest, the most compelling and the most direct in world literature. There is nothing else quite like it. Dickinson writes in short lyrics, often just eight lines long, often in regular quatrains, but often in irregular lines consisting of two half-lines joined in the middle by a dash (such as: ‘’Tis Honour - though I die’ in “Had I presumed to hope”). Her subjects appear to be the traditional ones of poetry, blocked in with capital letters: God, Love, Hope, Time, Death, Nature, the Sea, the Sun, the World, Childhood, the Past, History, and so on. Yet what exactly is Dickinson discussing? Who is the ‘I’, the ‘Thee’, the ‘we’ and the ‘you’ in her poetry? This is where things become much more ambiguous. Dickinson is very clear at times in her poetry, until one considers deeper exactly what she is saying - but this ambiguity is one of the hallmarks and the delights of her art.

    The book has been newly revised, with more poems added.

    Emily Brontë:

    Darkness and Glory: Selected Poems


    ...

    selected and introduced by Teresa Page

    This book collects together Emily Bronte's finest poems. 'Alone I sat; the summer day', 'High waving heather'', 'O Dream, where art thou now?'', 'Shall earth no more inspire thee' and 'No coward soul is mine'' are among the heartfelt poems in this new collection.
    Emily Brontë as a poet is still neglected today. Her novel Wuthering Heights, however, remains one of the great English novels. It continues to sell, continues to be adapted for radio, theatre, film and television, continues to inspire readers and be cited by critics.
    Wuthering Heights has entered British culture as both a serious work in academic circles and a series of cliches in popular culture. For scholars, Wuthering Heights is a superbly crafted and atmospheric piece of fiction which takes its place beside the great works of the 19th century (Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Middlemarch, Great Expectations, Pride and Prejudice). For feminists, Emily Bronte has been appropriated as a proto-feminist, working largely in isolation in patriarchal Yorkshire, away from the metropolitan centres of culture, yet producing fiery fiction and poetry. For the general reader, Wuthering Heights is a fabulously moody, passionate and romantic book, with a powerful sense of pace, fully rounded characters and a thrill of mystery about it.

    Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
    Lengthen night and shorten day;
    Every leaf speaks bliss to me
    Fluttering from the autumn tree,
    I shall smile when wreaths of snow
    Blossom where the rose should grow;
    I shall sing when night's decay
    Ushers in a drearier day.

    TO APHRODITE

    Aphrodite splendour-throned immortal, wile-weaving child of Zeus, to thee is my prayer. Whelm not my heart, O Queen, with suffering and sorrow, but come hither I pray thee, if ever ere this thou hast heard and marked my voice afar, and stepping from thy Father’s house harnessed a golden chariot, and the strong pinions of thy two swans fair and swift, whirring from heaven through mid-sky, have drawn thee towards the dark earth, and lo! were there; and thou, blest Lady, with a smile on that immortal face, didst gently ask what ailed me, and why I called, and what this wild heart would have done, and Whom shall I make to give thee room in her heart’s love, who is it, Sappho, that does thee wrong? for even if she flees thee, she shall soon pursue; if she will not take thy gifts, she yet shall give; and if she loves not, soon love she shall, whether or no; -
    O come to me now as thou camest then, to assuage my sore trouble and do what my heart would fain have done, thyself my stay in battle.

    (Sappho)

    Alison Wilding

    The Embrace of Sculpture


    ...

    by Susan Quinnell

    Alison Wilding (born 1948) is one the most powerful and erotic of contemporary British sculptors. Her sculptures are mysterious and sensual, made from materials that are traditional (wood, beeswax, copper, stone), modern (steel, plastic, rubber) and dangerous (hemlock, lead) or unusual (silk, even meteorites). Wilding's art deals lyrically with notions of volume, form, space, nurturing, the 'feminine', and symbiotic relationships. This is the only full-length study of Wilding's art available.

    [The body's] form, capacities, behaviour, gestures, movements, potential are primary objects of political contestation. As a political object, the body is not inert or fixed. It is pliable and plastical material, which is capable of being formed and organized in other, quite different ways or according to different classifactory schema than our binarised models.

    'Cosmo Woman'

    The World of Women's Magazines

    (new edition)


    ...

    by Oliver Whitehorne

    Fashion, image-making, sexism, gender, identity, materialism, feminism, commodity capitalism in the 'women's magazine' market. Ranging from the monthly 'glossies' (Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Elle and Vogue) to the 'homely' weeklies (Bella, Best and Woman's Own), through the 'style press' (Arena, GQ, i-D, The Face) to 'teenage' magazines (Jackie, Smash Hits, Mizz and Just Seventeen), this is one of the very few full-length analyses of the cultural products that sell in their millions.
    As well as Cosmopolitan, the author also studies many other magazines in the women's magazine market, and related magazines, such as lifestyle magazines and men's magazines.
    The author looks at the use of advertizing and consumerism in women's magazines and other lifestyle and consumer magazines, drawing on many examples of ads which are deconstructed in detail.

    Oliver Whitehorne is a freelance writer who has written extensively on the media. His previous books include TV Texts (1985), Eat the Media: Advertizing and Consumerism (1989), and Media Hell: Explorations of Radio, Television and the Press (Crescent Moon (1995).

    The book has been completely revised and updated for the new edition.
