Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Does pregnancy render a woman "a body among minds?" Linking feminist, psychoanalytic, and cultural theory in confronting such questions in how mothers have been represented by themselves and their daughters, Siegel (English, Mount Mary College, Wisconsin) analyzes how metaphors of motherhood affect feminism and even how the "reborn" body is viewed in organ transplantation. Perspectives examined range from the rejection of motherhood in Simone de Beauvoir's to "the housebroken, domesticated gothics" of Erma Bombeck. Annotation c.

    Highly recommended to anyone interested in women's autobiography

    This book covers a wide spectrum of issues: women's autobiographical theory, feminist theory, and cultural theory. I particularly liked the diverse array of women autobiographers presented (the selections included more traditional women autobiographers along with those from popular culture). The book presents the material clearly without resorting to jargon.
