This work of Jeanne Hyvrard confronts some of the profound questions of our time: physical and psychological oppression; colonialism; ecology and technology; madness and illness; birth and death; and mother-daughter relations. This is a study of her work. Like Cixous, Hyvrard has been described as a proponent of "l'ecriture feminine", but the author of this book shows, by setting Hyvrard's work in a range of contexts, that Hyvrard makes her own distinctive contribution to Western intellectual thought by ranging from the female body to global politics, economics and environmental issues. The text is illustrated with examples of Hyvrard's work throughout, showing her writing style to the non-French speaker. It also examines her distinctive use of the "chaos theory" in her writing.
