Description

A 'wilful extremist' according to the London Times, Helene Cixous is hailed as one of the most formidable writers and thinkers of our time. 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 into the Routledge Classics series, this is about to change. Questions that have long concerned her -- the self and the other, autobiographies of writing, sexual difference, literary theory, post-colonial theory, death and life -- are explored here, woven into a stunning narrative. Displaying a remarkable virtuosity, the work of Cixous is heady stuff indeed: exciting, powerful, moving, and dangerous.

Author Biography

Helene Cixous (1937- ) Born in Algeria, Cixous spent her childhood in France. Known for her experimental writing that crosses the traditional limits of academic discourse into poetic language, she is equally well known for her work in education and as a novelist and a playwright.
