Helene Cixous, Rootprints by Helene Cixous

Book Description

Helene Cixous is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant and innovative contemporary thinkers. Published here in English for the first time Helene Cixous, Rootprints is an ideal introduction to Cixous's theory and her fiction, tracing her development as a writer and intellectual whose remarkable prespicacity and electrifying poetic force are known world-wide. Unprecedented in its form and content this collection breaks new ground in the theory and practice of auto/biography. Cixous's creative reflections on the past provide occasion for scintillating forays into the future. The text includes: * an extended interview between Cixous and Calle-Gruber, exploring Cixous's creative and intellectual processes * a revealing collection of photographs taken from Cixous's family album, set against a poetic reflection by the author * selections from Cixous's private notebooks * a contribution by Jacques Derrida * original 'thing-pieces' by Calle-Gruber.

Abstracts and Brief Chronicles of the Time by Helene Cixous Abstracts and Brief Chronicles of the Time, Hardback (February 2016)

Helene Cixous has dreamed for years of "The Book-I-Don't-Write," but each time she approaches it, it withdraws. The-Book-I-Don't-Write is always just out of reach.

Death Shall be Dethroned by Helene Cixous Death Shall be Dethroned, Hardback (February 2016)

Death Shall Be Dethroned is the shadow book of Los, a Chapter, Helene Cixous tells us. It came along after Los, but it was always there "hidden" in her notebooks, in the Beethoven notebook, say, the one Jacques Derrida gave her. But when it tapped at the window, she ignored it until the day she had to let it in.

Tombe by Helene Cixous Tombe, Hardback (November 2014)

Masterfully translated by Laurent Milesi, this book preserves the sonic complexities and intricate wordplay at the core of author's writing, and reveals the struggles, ideas, and intents at the center of her work.
