Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a young Jewish saint by Hélène Cixous ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in French and English and held by 427 libraries worldwide
"Who can say "I am Jewish?" What does "Jew" mean? In Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint, Helene Cixous explores what these questions mean for the influential philosopher Jacques Derrida, founder of deconstruction, scoffer at fixed identities, and explorer of the indeterminate. Cixous's kaleidoscopic portrait effortlessly merges biography, textual commentary, and discussions of Jewish rituals and past philosophers in a playful exploration of Derrida, his works, and being (or not being) Jewish." "Derrida, who died in 2004, and Cixous were lifelong friends and grew up as French Jews in Algeria. They shared a "belonging constituted of exclusion and nonbelonging" - not Algerian, rejected by France, their Jewishness concealed or acculturated. In Derrida's family, "one never said 'circumcision' but 'baptism,' not 'Bar Mitzvah' but 'communion.'" Judaism cloaked in Catholicism is one example of the undecidability of identity that influenced the thinker whom Cixous calls a "Jewish Saint.""--BOOK JACKET.
The third body by Hélène Cixous ( Book )
18 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 419 libraries worldwide
"In The Third Body, the poet, novelist, feminist critic, and theorist Helene Cixous interweaves a loose narrative line with anecdotal presentations, autobiography, lyricism, myth, dream, fantasy, philosophical insights, and intertextual citations of and conversations with other authors and thinkers. Cixous evokes the relationship of the female narrator and her lover, a relationship of alternating presences and absences, separations and rejoinings - a passionate and ever-buoyant relationship in which the partners partake of life and death, memory and oblivion, desire and discovery, the transgressive and the visionary, and the chimerical and the "real." This relationship assumes protean forms within a complex web of writing, creating a "third body" out of the entwined bodies of the narrator and her lover. This is a sensuous body endowed with flesh-and-blood reality, and it is also the body of the text: for Cixous, writing is grounded in the physical body, and the physical body becomes writing." "The three dominant texts that Cixous cites or alludes to Wilhelm Jensen's novel Gradiva; Freud's interpretation of that work in the essay "Delusion and Dream"; and Kleist's "Earthquake in Chile" - are integrated with reminiscences of the narrator's dead father, juxtaposed with thoughts about her lover; evocations of the narrator's mother; and ruminations on figures taken from Scripture, classical mythology, and fairy tales."--BOOK JACKET.

Dream I tell you by Hélène Cixous ( Book )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and French and held by 369 libraries worldwide
"For years, Helene Cixous has been writing down fragments of her dreams immediately after awaking. In Dream I Tell You, she collects fifty from the past ten years. Cixous's accounts of her dreamscapes resist standard psychoanalytic interpretations and reflect her lyrical, affecting, and deeply personal style. The dreams, reproduced in what Cixous calls both their "brute and innocent state," are infused with Cixous's humor, wit, and sense of playfulness." "Dreams have always been a crucial part of Cixous's writing. They are her archives and it is with them that she writes. Without dreaming, Cixous writes, "I would crumble to dust." As in many of her other texts, Cixous's mother, father, daughter, and friends populate this work, which offers artistic and provocative meditations on the themes of family, death, and resurrection. Scenes of a daily life - getting a haircut, caring for her child, preparing for work - become skewed in Cixous's dreams. She also writes of dreams, both amusing and unsettling, in which she spends an evening with Martin Heidegger, has her lunch quietly interrupted by a young lion, flees the Nazis, and tours Auschwitz." "The "you" of the title is fellow philosopher and friend Jacques Derrida, to whom these texts are addressed. The book reflects on many of the subjects the two grappled with in their work and in conversation: the deconstruction of psychoanalysis, literary production, subjectivity, sexual difference, and the question of friendship."--BOOK JACKET.
