Description - Helene Cixous, Rootprints by Helene Cixous

Helene Cixous is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant and innovative contemporary thinkers. Published here in English for the first time, Hel D ne Cixous, Rootprints traces Cixous's development as a writer and intellectual whose remarkable perspicacity and poetic force are known world-wide. This unique collection speaks with many voices and in different registers, allowing the reader myriad entries into the rich diversity of Cixous's works. At once profound and limpid, Rootprints is an ideal introduction to Cixous's theory and fiction, exploring such vital questions as sexual difference, literary theory, feminism, philosophy, self and other, death and life. It weaves together a broad range of documents: extended interview, critical essay, photographs from Cixous's family album, pages from her private notebooks, with a stunning poetico-biographical musing by the author, complete bio-bibliographical information and a contribution by Jacques Derrida. This book provides endless fascination for all those who wish to get to know the author, the professor, the political activist, the dreamer, the mother, the daughter, the analyst, the the thinker, the person named Hel D ne Cixous.
