Old Wives' Tales: Feminist Re-visions of Film and Other Fictions

Front Cover
I.B. Tauris, 1999 - American literature - 238 pages
What stories are women telling about themselves? What are the narratives that shape women's fantasy lives and experiences? How can women use the existing media of film, performance and autobiography to tell their own stories, their own lives, their own fantasies? Offering answers to these questions, this book considers how, and under what conditions, women might become the makers and not simply the bearers of meaning; how, in other words, women can tell instead of being told.
