Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a young Jewish saint by Hélène Cixous( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 414 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
The day I wasn't there by Hélène Cixous( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and French and held by 412 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
The third body by Hélène Cixous( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 400 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

Volleys of humanity : essays 1972- 2009 by Hélène Cixous( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major new collection of texts by Hélène Cixous brings together a range of important untranslated as well as four previously unpublished essays. These essays deal with literature, politics, history, Algeria, and the university and include works from Cixous' most significant contributions to literary criticism (Joyce, Kleist, Stendhal, Kafka, Shakespeare) as well as her contemporary writing on human rights and geo-politics. They are all informed by Cixous' unique gift for combining a writer's love of idiom and life with a scholar's acute deconstructive reading. These texts present an extended account of what Cixous calls here 'autobibliography' in which writing, theory, politics and life combine to open up the world through critical reading and self-reflection. 'I am on the side of life', says Cixous. These essays affirm Cixous' reputation as one of our greatest readers and sources of critical light in the world today. Key Features *Author is a leading French theorist and writer *Essays cover a wide range of topics and contemporary issues
