Sinuosities, Lesbian Poetic Politics by Jeffner Allen
Book Description'Allen's work is virtually unique among American writers. It illustrates a deep knowledge of the issues raised by the postmodernists, yet she does not succumb to the playing field, constructing instead her own philosophical direction and aesthetic' - Sarah Hoagland. Jeffner Allen shapes a poetic politics that transforms textual and everyday realities. The surprising, resilient, and transformative windings of lesbian writing and lesbian lives - a poetics of sinuous movement, the turning of women to women - informs these reflections on existentialism, lesbian and feminist theory, motherhood, education, hunger, the use and abuse of female bodies in patriarchal economies, female friendship, anger, revolt, endurance, resistance, and survival. For inspiration and meaning, Allen looks away from the fictional poses of much postmodernism, turning instead toward an intimacy of the body as lived. To answer questions about how and whether to remember, to trust, and to befriend, Allen suggests a practice of ecological reading and an attentive listening to the shifting and unpredictable currents that cross women's lives.
