Description


Transgression(s) in Twenty-First-Century Women's Writing in French analyses the literary transgressions of women's writing in French since the turn of the twenty-first century in the works of major figures, such as Annie Ernaux and V ronique Tadjo, of the now established writers of the 'nouvelle g n ration', such as Marie Darrieussecq and Virginie Despentes, and in some of the most exciting and innovative authors from across the francosph re, from Nine Antico to Ma ssa Bey and Chlo Delaume.
Pushing the boundaries of current thinking about normative and queer identities, local and global communities, family and kinship structures, bodies and sexualities, creativity and the literary canon, these authors pose the potential of reading and writing to also effectuate change in the world beyond the text.
