Jeanne Hyvrard: theorist of the modern world
Like Hélène Cixous, Hyvrard has been described as a proponent of l'écriture feminine; yet as Hyvrard's undertaking confronts profound questions -- language; the body; physical and psychological oppression; colonialism; ecology and technology; madness and illness; birth and death; and mother-daughter relations -- her work emerges original, incisive, and committed to new ways of thinking. This, the first study of her complete works, establishes Hyvrad's singular place among theorists of the modern world.
