An easily accessible introduction to Kristeva's work in English. The essays have been selected as representative of the three main areas of Kristeva's writing--semiotics, psychoanalysis, and political theory--and are each prefaced by a clear, instructive introduction. For beginners or those familiar with Kristeva's work this is a good complement to "The Portable Kristeva" with a convenient selection of articles from Kristeva's earlier work some of which are otherwise hard to come by. -- Elaine Showalter
