In Insister she brings a mixture of theoretical speculation, textual explication and scholarly erudition to a close reading of Derrida's work, always attentive to the details of his thinking. At the same time, Insister is a poetic meditation, a work of literature and of mourning for Jacques Derrida the person, who was a close friend and accomplice of Cixous's from the beginning of their careers."--BOOK JACKET+-+82540295354068ocn021972960book19910.66Cixous, HélèneThe book of Promethea = Le livre de PrometheaFiction+-+58981785354038ocn052623579book20030.70Cixous, HélènePortrait of Jacques Derrida as a young Jewish saint"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+-+307376687539212ocn012343837book19770.82Cixous, HélèneAngst""Voici la scène sans précédent : Ma mère me pose par terre.

"Savoir," by Helene Cixous, is a brief but densely layered account of her experience of recovered sight after a lifetime of severe myopia, an experience that ends with the unexpected turn of grieving for what is lost. Her literary inventiveness mines the coincidence in French between the two verbs savoir (to know) and voir (to see). Jacques Derrida's "A Silkworm of One's Own" complexly muses on a host of autobiographical, philosophical, and religious motifs including his varied responses to "Savoir." The two texts are accompanied by six beautiful and evocative drawings that play on the theme of drapery over portions of the body." "Veils suspends sexual difference between two homonyms: la voile (sail) and le voile (veil). A whole history of sexual difference is enveloped, sometimes dissimulated here in the folds of sails and veils and in the turns, journeys, and returns of their metaphors and metonymies." "However foreign to each other they may appear, however autonomous they may be, the two texts participate in a common genre: autobiography, confession, memoirs. The future also enters in: by opening to each other, the two discourses confide what is about to happen, the imminence of an event lacking any common measure with them or with anything else, an operation that restores sight and plunges into mourning the knowledge of the previous night, a "verdict" whose threatening secret remains out of reach by our knowledge."--BOOK JACKET+-+404282953534316ocn001294862book19690.70Cixous, HélèneDedansOm en ensom kvindes skæbne33036ocn017387643book19760.86Cixous, HélèneThéâtre3255ocn041119060book19990.77Cixous, HélèneThe third bodyExperimental fiction"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."--Jacket+-+623166563531511ocn015611291book19860.79Cixous, HélèneEntre l'écriture3154ocn028888977book19930.70Cixous, HélèneManna : for the Mandelstams for the MandelasA prose-poem on two married couples involved in the revolutionary struggle.

From collaborating with the acclaimed performance company Theatre du Soleil, to producing a weighty body of both fiction and non-fiction, Cixous is celebrated for her brilliant contributions to contemporary culture. Acclaimed by luminaries such as Jacques Derrida, her writing has nonetheless been misunderstood and misread to a surprising extent. With the inclusion of Stigmata, one of her greatest works, in the Routledge Classics series, this is about to change.

Penrod presents Cixous as a writer exemplifying an extraordinarily rich vein of women's writing in contemporary France - from her academic work centering on James Joyce, her copious essays on philosophy and theory, and her now-classic essays on ecriture feminine to her novels, stories, "fictions," and dramatic works. With its delight in wordplay and punning, the playfulness of its language, and its characteristic poetic style, Cixous's work, Penrod contends, provides an opportunity for exploring language in its purest form+-+79373205355015ocn808600259file20090.70Renshaw, SalThe subject of love Hélène Cixous and the feminine divineCriticism, interpretation, etcFitting well with contemporary post-modern scholarly preoccupations, this title makes a significant contribution to feminist engagements with the philosophy/theology of love+-+751415462548710ocn226360205book20080.70Cixous, HélèneWhite ink : interviews on sex, text and politicsInterviewsThese interviews from newspapers, journals and books address the major concerns of Cixous's critical work, such as her writing process, her views on literature, feminism, theater, autobiography, philosophy, politics, aesthetics, religion, ethics, human relations, and her roles as poet, playwright, professor, woman, Jew and French feminist theorist.

To prove this, he elucidates the epistemological and historical interconnectedness of four terms: genesis, genealogy, genre, and genius, and how they pertain to or are implicated in Cixous's work. Derrida explores Cixous's genius (a masculine term in French, he is quick to point out) and the inspiration that guides and informs her writing. He marvels at her skillful working within multiple genres. He focuses on a number of her works, including her extraordinary novel Manhattan and her lyrical and evocative Dream I Tell You, a book addressed to Derrida himself and one in which Cixous presents a series of her dreams. Derrida also delves into the nature of the literary archive, the production of literature, and the importance of the poetic and sexual difference to the entirety of his own work. For forty years, Derrida had a close personal and intellectual relationship with Helene Cixous. Clever, playful, and eloquent, Geneses, Genealogies, Genres, and Genius charts the influence these two critical giants had on each other and is the most vital work to address Cixous's contribution to French thought."--Publisher's website+-+53248668754042ocn023213435book19910.74Shiach, MoragHélène Cixous : a politics of writingHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcHelene Cixous' analyses of the relations between sexuality and textual production have transformed theoretical discussion of gender and writing. Her work on the implications of a feminine economy in writing, and insistence on the bodily dimensions of textual production have led to a new understanding of the project of feminist literary criticism. Morag Shiach provides an introduction for the English-speaking reader to the range of Cixous's creative and theoretical writings. In dealing with Cixous' theoretical arguments, Shiach both clarifies the philosophical and historical context of her work, and insists on its novelty and specificity. The book offers close analysis of Cixous' fictional texts, as well as her discussions of the relations between the political and the textual. There is also a detailed account of Cixous' theatrical writings, and of her collaboration with the Theatre du Soleil. -- Publisher description4013ocn033862623book19960.70Sellers, SusanHélène Cixous : authorship, autobiography, and loveCriticism, interpretation, etcThis book is a clear and accessible introduction to the writings of Helene Cixous, novelist, dramatist and critic, whose work has had a major impact on feminist theory and practice.

C. for Life, That Is to Say . . . is Derrida's literary critical recollection of his lifelong friendship with Helene Cixous. The main figure that informs Derrida's reading here is that of "taking sides." While Helene Cixous in her life and work takes the side of life, "for life," Derrida admits always feeling drawn to the side of death. Rather than being an obvious choice, taking the side of life is an act of faith, by wagering one's life on life. H. C. for Life sets up and explores this interminable "argument" between Derrida and Cixous as to what death has in store deep within life itself, before the end. In addition to being a memoir, it is also a theoretical confrontation--for example about the meaning of "might" and "omnipotence," and a philosophical and philological analysis of the crypts within the vast oeuvre of Helene Cixous. Finally, the book is Derrida's tribute to the thought of the woman whom he regards as one of the great French poets, writers, and thinkers of our time."--Publisher's website+-+76590295352866ocn053912698book20040.77Blyth, IanHélène Cixous : live theoryCriticism, interpretation, etcInterviewsThe book opens with an introduction and an overview of the key features of Cixous's theory of ecriture feminine (feminine writing).
