Virginia Woolf and the Fictions of Psychoanalysis by Elizabeth Abel

Book Description

"A stunning, brilliant, absolutely compelling reading of Woolf through the lens of Kleinian and Freudian psychoanalytic debates about the primacy of maternality and paternality in the construction of consciousness, gender, politics, and the past, and of psychoanalysis through the lens of Woolf's novels and essays. In addition to transforming our understanding of Woolf, this book radically expands our understanding of the historicity and contingent construction of psychoanalytic theory and our vision of the potential of psychoanalytic feminism." Nancy J. Chodorow, University of California at Berkeley ""Virginia Woolf and the Fictions of Psychoanalysis" brings Woolf's extraordinary craftsmanship back into view; the book combines powerful claims about sexual politics and intellectual history with the sort of meticulous, imaginative close reading that leaves us, simply, seeing much more in Woolf's words than we did before. It is the most exciting book on Woolf to come along in some time." Lisa Ruddick, Modern Philology"

Books By Author Elizabeth Abel

Signs of the Times by Elizabeth Abel Signs of the Times, Paperback (May 2010)

Traces the career of Jim Crow signs - simplified in cultural memory to the 'colored/white' labels that demarcated the public spaces of the American South - from their intellectual and political origins in the second half of the nineteenth century through their dismantling by civil rights activists in the 1960s and '70s.

Female Subjects in Black and White by Elizabeth Abel Female Subjects in Black and White, Paperback (May 1997)

A collaboration between African American and white feminists that deals with the problems that have troubled feminist thinking for decades. It questions such issues as the primacy of sexual difference, the universal nature of psychoanalytic categories, and the role of race in the formation of identity.
