Description - On Not Being Able To Sleep by Jacqueline Rose
In these powerfull essays Jacqueline Rose delves into the questions that keep us awake at night, into issues of privacy and publishing, exposure and shame. Do some women writers - Christina Rossetti, Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath - have a special talent for self-revalation? Or are they simply more vulnerable to the invasions of biography? Turning to psycoanalysis, Rose explores tis affinity with modernism and asks what it can tell us about the limits of knowledge, both about the most intimate and baffling components of experience and about the furthest, halucinatory, reaches of the mind. Written with style, power and clarity, these fine studdies move deftly between public, political and private, unconcious worlds. Offering new links between feminism, psycoanalysis, literature and politics, On Not Being Able to Sleepprovides a resonant and thought provoking collection for the present day.
