This is the first truly representative selection of texts by Helene Cixous. The substantial pieces range broadly across her entire oeuvre, and include essays, works of fiction, lectures and drama. Arranged helpfully in chronological order, the extracts span twenty years of intellectual thought and demonstrate clearly the development of one of the most creative and brilliant minds of the twentieth century. Susan Sellers' introductions to each piece will be especially helpful to readers new to the writings of Cixous.
With a foreward by Jacques Derrida, a preface by Cixous herself, and first-rate editorial material by Sellers, "The Helene Cixous Reader" is destined to become a key text of feminist writing.

Industry Reviews

"An excellent selection." -Toril Moi, Duke University "An indispensable point of reference." -Nicole Ward Jouve, University of York "Invaluable to students and scholars of Cixous in the English-speaking and English reading world." -Helen Wilcox, University of Groningen
