Edition : New ed
Overview This study explores the encounter between feminism, psychoanalysis, semiotics and film theory. The author argues for the importance of sexual difference and fantasy as key concepts through which an interrogation of contemporary theory should be sustained. Always taking as her starting point the question of feminine sexuality, she examines the extraordinary intransigence and fragility of its representation in cultural and psychic life. With essays on Julia Kristeva and Jacques Lacan, George Eliot and Shakespeare's "Hamlet", mainstream cinema and the artistic avant-garde, this volume is a criticial intervention into some of the most challenging areas of thinking of today.
