Does gender have a poetics: What difference does gender make? How does it affect writing, reading, and the functions of text in society? The Poetics of Gender is a brilliant assembly of leading feminist critics whose collective effort presents the most up-to-date research on these important issues. The range of techniques and theories represented here are applied across a broad spectrum of texts and cultural forms, extending from women's writing of the Renaissance and the fiction of George Sand to the relation between quiltmaking and nineteenth-century literary forms, the pornography of Georges Bataille, and the theories of Julia Kristeva.

This anthology is based on papers pre sented at the recent imporant "Poetics of Gender" colloquium held at Colum bia University. The papers include a study of survival tactics used by female Renaissance lyric poets (Ann Rosalind Jones), an analysis of Cellini's "Nymph of Fontainbleau" (Nancy Vickers), and an imaginative juxtaposi tion of 19th-century American wom en's handicraft and writing (Elaine Showalter). For readers who want to find out how European feminist critics are placing Mom square in the middle of feminist ideology, there are in-depth discussions of the critical works of Julia Kristeva, Helene Cixous, and Luce Ir garay. Of particular interest to femi nists is Susan Rubin Suleiman's cri tique of Andrea Dworkin's response to George Bataille's pornography. Joyce Nower, Academic Skills Ctr., San Diego State Univ.
