Booknews
Bronfen, (English, Zurich U.) explores the philosophical underpinnings of Dorothy Richardson's novel cycle . She argues that Richardson's work has been marginalized in the study of gender, genre, and modernism, and she wants to recuperate it beyond its current standing as a voice of feminine modernism. Bronfen moves her examination past this issue to examine how identity emerges as a result of both corporeal and cultural "enspacement." Translated from the German by Victoria Appelbe. Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
