Tactical Readings: Feminist Postmodernism in the Novels of Kathy Acker and Angela Carter
"This study situates Carter's works from the 1970s and Acker's from the 1980s in relation to the political, economic, and cultural discourses commonly circulating during their day. In Carter's case, the immediate context is the recession-aggravated crisis of the British welfare state and of postimperial national identity; and in Acker's, the swallowing-up of oppositional identities and rhetoric by American capitalism during the heyday of "revolutionary" neoconservatism.
