The making of the Hawthorne subject by Alison Easton( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive study of Nathaniel Hawthorne's early writings analyzes the development of Hawthorne's work over the first twenty-five years of his career. Alison Easton studies that process in relation to current critical debates on subjectivity. By examining Hawthorne's novels, sketches, tales, letters, notebooks, reviews, and children's books up to the publication of The Scarlet Letter, Easton shows how Hawthorne tried to understand the complexities of the clash between desire (that which is unrecognized by the social order) and circumstance (the conditions under which one must live in society). The Hawthorne who emerges from this study proves to be a sophisticated theorist of subjectivity, whose project was central to his times. The author contends that over the first half of his career Hawthorne explored, experimented, and negotiated his way toward a better model of the human subject than the ones that are usually seen as his cultural inheritance. This approach implies a complex, dialectic development in Hawthorne's work, arising from twenty-five years of accumulated experimentation and ongoing debate. Nearly all critics of Hawthorne have ignored this element of development, thus missing the complex evolution of the subject and the revealing intertextual play of meaning that is evident in everything Hawthorne wrote during this period. Easton's study is the first to supply a full chronology for the works written during these years, and the only one to consider in close detail the full and bewilderingly diverse range of his writing throughout this period and to find an overall pattern in the several stages of his intellectual and artistic enterprise
Angela Carter( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Angela Carter's writings have been a source of pleasure, puzzlement and controversy ever since she started publishing in the 1960s. Until her death in 1992, she was one of Britain's most exciting contemporary authors, particularly with her fantastical fictions and her feminist political essays on sex, gender and class. Carter identified herself as a feminist and most of her writings explore the subject of gender, usually in difficult and daring ways." "This collection of literary critical studies provides a selection from the many different responses which her works have evoked over the past twenty years. Together they explore most of Carter's major writings and demonstrate a variety of feminist theoretical approaches."--Jacket
Women, power, and resistance : an introduction to women's studies( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women, Power and Resistance is an accessible introductory book on Women's Studies. It is divided into interdisciplinary sections covering key aspects and major debates, centering on four main areas: the social organization of gender relations, the cultural representation of women, gender and social identity, and women and political change. These sections are linked by the concepts of women, power and resistance: each section investigates how women have been defined by dominant social structures, and how they have resisted such definitions, both within and outside those structures. In the process, a range of different feminist perspectives and methodologies are explored. Theory is introduced through the in-depth study of specific topics and themes. Each chapter is written in a clear and accessible style, and is followed by questions to promote further discussion and an explanatory further reading section, making the book ideal as a course textbook, or as an introduction to anyone who wishes to know more about Women's Studies and feminism
