Reading with Clarice Lispector by Helene Cixous

Book Description

The texts that comprise this volume were selected from Helene Cixous's seminars on the work of Clarice Lispector. They reflect Cixous's own meditations on problems of reading and writing, and on related themes such as exchange and the gift, love and passion, as well as trace the influence of Lispector's work on her own development. Reading the Brazilian writer from the vantage point of modern theory, Cixous aims to draw her into the mainstream of current debates which question the concept of the so-called rational "Cartesian" individual and which note the increasing power of the social and applied sciences that seek to establish control over the individual. The book includes extracts of Clarice Lispector's prose writing, such as "The Apple in the Dark - The Temptations of Understanding" and "The Hour of the Star:How Does One Desire Wealth or Poverty?".

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, Paperback (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.
