The Madwoman Can't Speak: Or why Insanity is Not Subversive
Cornell University Press, 1998 - 195 pagina's
In this work, the subversive madwoman first appropriated by feminist theorists and critics is re-evaluated. How, the author asks, can such a figure be subversive if she's effectively imprisoned, silent and unseen? Taking issue with a prominent strand of current feminist literary criticism, Caminero-Santangelo identifies a counternarrative in writing by women in the last half of the 20th century, one which rejects madness, even as a symbolic resolution.
