Contemporary Women's Fiction and the Fantastic by Lucie Armitt

Book Description

This volume examines a wide variety of the ways in which the fantastic has impacted upon contemporary women's fiction. Some of the issues addressed include: the importance of the cyborg and the spectre to critical and fictional discourses of gender; the interface between the grotesque and contemporary readings of feminist utopianism; the growing similarity between late twentieth-century gothicism and the magical real. The study is based upon the work of fifteen writers and includes novels by Allende, Atwood, Carter, Head, Morrison, Weldon, Winterson and Wittig.

Where No Man has Gone Before by Lucie Armitt Where No Man has Gone Before, Paperback (March 2014)

From Mary Shelley onwards, women writers have played a central role in the shaping and reshaping of the science fiction genre, irrespective of its undeniably patriarchal image. Through a combination of essays on the work of writers such as Doris Lessing and Ursula Le Guin, this anthology takes a step towards redressing the balance.

Twentieth Century Gothic by Lucie Armitt Twentieth Century Gothic, Paperback (September 2009)

This book covers Gothic writing and film from Henry James to Sarah Waters. Among its primary themes are the role of the ghost in relation to childhood and cultural mourning, the relationship between Gothic Architecture and the 'landscapes' of dream and nightmare and the interface between Gothic and Horror modes of writing.

George Eliot by Lucie Armitt George Eliot, Paperback (April 2000)

Focusing on three of Eliot's most influential and widely-read "Midlands" novels, Lucie Armutt traces the effect of recent critical interpretations upon the reception and teaching of eliot's work, as well as revisiting some of the perspectives offered by the original reviewers and early critics.
