Most widely held works by Ruth Robbins
The French connections of Jacques Derrida ( )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and Polish and held by 1,637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The French Connections of Jacques Derrida offers stimulating and accessible essays that address, for the first time, the issue of Derrida's relation to French poetics, writing, thought, and culture. In addition to offering considerations of Derrida through studies of such significant French authors as Mallarme, Baudelaire, Valery, Laporte, Ponge, Perec, Blanchot, and Barthes, the book also reassesses the development of Derrida's work in the context of structuralism, biology, and linguistics in the 1960s, and looks at the possible relationships between Derrida's writing and that of the Surrealist and Oulipa groups. Derrida is introduced as one whose work is as much poetic as it is philosophical, and who is strikingly French and yet not unproblematically so

Literary feminisms by Ruth Robbins ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Literary Feminisms provides a map for charting the difficult waters that feminist theories have created in literary studies. Ruth Robbins shows the reasons for the development of feminist literary critiques, explains the difficulties and exposes some of feminism's blindspots. A wide range of theorists is discussed from Wollstonecraft to Kristeva, showing the ways in which materialist, psychoanalytic and literary accounts of feminist thinking creatively intersect. Through a series of exemplary readings of texts such as Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and Gilman's The Yellow Wall-paper she also points out how the student reader can begin to make her or his own feminist criticism, and can learn to engage with both the politics and poetics of the literature." "'This is a lively, straightforward and highly accessible introduction to the varieties of feminist criticism which are found today. Robbins gives a brief and very useful overview of the history of recent feminist thought ... Particularly useful are the feminist readings she offers: exemplar of how to turn theory into practice. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to my own students Robbins writes with confidence and clarity. She explains critical concepts lucidly: her aim is to enable not over-awe, her audience. Even a student sceptical about feminist theory would gain greatly from this work, and those who already believe themselves familiar with the field will be led to see familiar texts - both theoretical and literary - in fresh ways. Literary Feminisms provides an invaluable introduction to its field' - Kate Flint, Linacre College, Oxford."--BOOK JACKET

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pater to Forster, 1873 1924" covers a period often named as an "age of transition", which exists uneasily between the apparent moral certainties of the Victorian age and the advent of a modernist aesthetics of instability and uncertainty. Ruth Robbins considers some of the central literary categories and themes of the period in writings by major and "minor" writers - decadence, realism and naturalism, nostalgia, New Woman writing, degeneration, imperialism and early modernism - to create a complex picture of transitions, continuities and breaks with the past
