The newly born woman by Hélène Cixous( Book )

50 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in France as La jeune née in 1975, and now translated for the first time into English, The Newly Born Woman seeks to uncover the veiled structures of language and society that have situated women in the position called "woman's place." Through their readings of historical, literary, and psychoanalytic accounts, Hélène Cixous and Catherine Clément explore what is hidden and repressed in culture, revealing the unconscious of history. Their work is set within the context of American feminism in Sandra M. Gilbert's introduction, and translator, Betsy Wing's glossary provides the special vocabulary necessary for English-language readers."--back cover

The third body by Hélène Cixous( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Third Body, the poet, novelist, feminist critic, and theorist Helene Cixous interweaves a loose narrative line with anecdotal presentations, autobiography, lyricism, myth, dream, fantasy, philosophical insights, and intertextual citations of and conversations with other authors and thinkers. Cixous evokes the relationship of the female narrator and her lover, a relationship of alternating presences and absences, separations and rejoinings - a passionate and ever-buoyant relationship in which the partners partake of life and death, memory and oblivion, desire and discovery, the transgressive and the visionary, and the chimerical and the "real." This relationship assumes protean forms within a complex web of writing, creating a "third body" out of the entwined bodies of the narrator and her lover. This is a sensuous body endowed with flesh-and-blood reality, and it is also the body of the text: for Cixous, writing is grounded in the physical body, and the physical body becomes writing." "The three dominant texts that Cixous cites or alludes to Wilhelm Jensen's novel Gradiva; Freud's interpretation of that work in the essay "Delusion and Dream"; and Kleist's "Earthquake in Chile"--Are integrated with reminiscences of the narrator's dead father, juxtaposed with thoughts about her lover; evocations of the narrator's mother; and ruminations on figures taken from Scripture, classical mythology, and fairy tales."--Jacket
The day I wasn't there by Hélène Cixous( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in French and English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title of Christine Schutt's second collection strikes the theme of swiftly passing time that runs through each of the stories. In "The Life of the Palm and the Breast" a woman watches her half-grown children running through the house and wonders: Whose boys are these? Whose life is this? The title story tells of a grandfather who has lived long enough to see his daughter's struggles echoed in his granddaughter and how her unhappiness leads him to unexpectedly feel the weight of his years. In "Darkest of All" a mother's relationship with her sons is wreaked by a repeated cycle of drugs and abusive relationships, the years pass and the pain-and its chosen remedy-remains the same. The narrator in "Winterreise" evokes Thoreau and strives to be heroic in the face of her longtime friend's imminent death, a harsh reminder of the time that is allotted to each of us. Schutt's indomitable, original talent is once again on full display in each of these deeply informed, intensely realized stories. Many of the narratives take place in a space as small as a house, where the doors are many and what is hidden behind these thin domestic barriers tends towards violence, abusive sex, and mental anguish. Schutt opens these doors in sudden, bold moments that also reveal how the characters are often hopeful, even optimistic. With a style that is at once sensual and spare, dreamlike and deliberate, she exposes the terrible intimacy of the rooms and corridors of our innermost lives."--Publisher's website
Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a young Jewish saint by Hélène Cixous( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who can say "I am Jewish?" What does "Jew" mean? In Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint, Helene Cixous explores what these questions mean for the influential philosopher Jacques Derrida, founder of deconstruction, scoffer at fixed identities, and explorer of the indeterminate. Cixous's kaleidoscopic portrait effortlessly merges biography, textual commentary, and discussions of Jewish rituals and past philosophers in a playful exploration of Derrida, his works, and being (or not being) Jewish." "Derrida, who died in 2004, and Cixous were lifelong friends and grew up as French Jews in Algeria. They shared a "belonging constituted of exclusion and nonbelonging"--Not Algerian, rejected by France, their Jewishness concealed or acculturated. In Derrida's family, "one never said 'circumcision' but 'baptism, ' not 'Bar Mitzvah' but 'communion.'" Judaism cloaked in Catholicism is one example of the undecidability of identity that influenced the thinker whom Cixous calls a "Jewish Saint.""--Jacket
Angst by Hélène Cixous( Book )

14 editions published between 1977 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Voici la scène sans précédent : Ma mère me pose par terre. La pièce se ferme. "Attends-moi. Je reviens tout de suite". Ma mère sort. La terre se ferme. Je suis dehors. Tout se met à mourir ..."
Veils by Hélène Cixous( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Something of a historical event, this book combines loosely "autobiographical" texts by two of the most influential French intellectuals of our time. "Savoir," by Helene Cixous, is a brief but densely layered account of her experience of recovered sight after a lifetime of severe myopia, an experience that ends with the unexpected turn of grieving for what is lost. Her literary inventiveness mines the coincidence in French between the two verbs savoir (to know) and voir (to see). Jacques Derrida's "A Silkworm of One's Own" complexly muses on a host of autobiographical, philosophical, and religious motifs including his varied responses to "Savoir." The two texts are accompanied by six beautiful and evocative drawings that play on the theme of drapery over portions of the body." "Veils suspends sexual difference between two homonyms: la voile (sail) and le voile (veil). A whole history of sexual difference is enveloped, sometimes dissimulated here in the folds of sails and veils and in the turns, journeys, and returns of their metaphors and metonymies." "However foreign to each other they may appear, however autonomous they may be, the two texts participate in a common genre: autobiography, confession, memoirs. The future also enters in: by opening to each other, the two discourses confide what is about to happen, the imminence of an event lacking any common measure with them or with anything else, an operation that restores sight and plunges into mourning the knowledge of the previous night, a "verdict" whose threatening secret remains out of reach by our knowledge."--Jacket
Insister : of Jacques Derrida by Hélène Cixous( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Helene Cixous is arguably the most insightful and unbridled reader of Jacques Derrida today. In Insister she brings a mixture of theoretical speculation, textual explication and scholarly erudition to a close reading of Derrida's work, always attentive to the details of his thinking. At the same time, Insister is a poetic meditation, a work of literature and of mourning for Jacques Derrida the person, who was a close friend and accomplice of Cixous's from the beginning of their careers."--Jacket
Poetry in painting : writings on contemporary arts and aesthetics by Hélène Cixous( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neither art criticism nor a collection of critical essays, Hélène Cixous responds to these artworks as a poet, reading them as if they were poems. Written between 1985 and 2010, most of these essays are unpublished in English, or published only in rare catalogues or art books."--Pub. desc
