Overview

Feminist Poetics in concerned with all of these questions, but also with the issue of rewriting an older poetics for what it does not say about the marginalisation of the feminine. The first half of the book traces the trajectory of a particular, feminine, academic subject learning to find her voice.

This book is a feminist poetics for those who are engaged in the teaching of literacies, and in the making of Knowledge about literacies.
