Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In this analysis of literary witness-bearing to psychic-cum-political trauma provoked by sexual violence, Horvitz (Salem State College; School at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) samples the fiction of seven North American women writers from the late 19th and 20th centuries<-->promising emancipatory, yet reactionary eras: Leslie Marmon Silko, Gayl Jones, Pauline Hopkins, Joyce Carol Oates, Margaret Atwood, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman. From a reading informed by psychoanalytic, feminist, and multicultural literary studies, the author reaffirms that there is a gender difference in equating inflicting pain with sexual gratification and that such analyses help break the vicious cycle. She also calls for a parallel study of male-authored fiction. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
