Writing Selves by Jeanne Perreault
Book DescriptionThis work re-theorizes ideas of self, identity and community as embodied and textualized forces of change. Using the concept of autography it aims to make a major contribution to the questions informing the poetics and politics of identity. Looking to Audre Lorde's "Cancer Journals", Kate Millet's "The Basement", Adrienne Rich's later prose and poetry, and Patricia William's "Diary", among other works, Perreault compellingly examines writing as a significant element in the processes of self-making. Exploring the shifting boundaries of feminist communities, Perreault demonstrates how an intense reciting of "I" and "we" allows the reconceptiion of an ethically informed subjectivity.
