schema:reviewBody""Catalan Women Writers and Artists: Revisionist Views from a Feminist Space proposes a new way of considering feminist writing and painting in Catalunya from 1936 to 1990. Merce Rodoreda, Remedios Varo, Montserrat Roig, and Carme Riera all make groundbreaking literary and artistic strides through unique forms of artistic expression and by asserting a distinctly feminine voice. The idea of women ideologically and linguistically exiled from dominant discourse parallels the Catalan situation as a region of Spain politically and linguistically isolated from the rest of the nation. The thesis of this book posits that if women are forced or force themselves into a position of marginality then from that space they can better criticize dominant society. However, this "position" of societal exile introduces complications in terms of subjectivity and women's relationship to language. These theoretical issues are discussed throughout by way of textual analysis. Paul Ilie's theories of internal exile as well as Michel Foucault and Julia Kristeva on the problems of subjectivity guide the readings of the visual and verbal texts."--BOOK JACKET."
