Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Marquerite Duras: Apocalytic Desires is the first fully detailed, complete account in English of the fiction and films of France's best-known and most controversial contemporary woman writer. It considers all aspects of the author's work, ranging from her early novels of the 1950s to her radically innovative experimental films of the 1970s and her best-selling autobiographical text of the 1980s, The Lover ; it contains the most extensive listing yet available in any language of all Duras' work, including her journalism, interviews, and television and radio appearances. Marguerite Duras: Apocalyptic Desires throws new light on Dura's relationship to feminism, psychoanalysis, sexuality, literature, film, politics, and the media; it shows how desire for Duras is conceived throughout as a profoundly transgressive, catastrophic force that lays waste to the world in order to reach the sublime intensity of pure affirmation. Marguerite Duras Apoclyptic Desires will be of concern to all readers with an interst in contemporary writing, writing by women, feminism, recent European cinema, literary theory, and modern French literature.
