Description - The Feminine Subject in Children's Literature by Christine Wilkie-Stibbs

This text aims to extend the range of critical engagement with children's fiction by exploring the feminine subject in paradigm texts by Margaret Mahy and Gillian Cross. Drawing upon the works of Luce Irigaray, Helen Cixous, Julia Kristeva and Jacques Lacan, the author demonstrates how a feminist and psychoanalytical approach to these specific works opens up textual possibilities that might be applied to children's fiction in general.
