8 Chance, Jane [Editor] Gender and Text in the Later Middle Ages (First Edition)
Gainesville, FL University Press of Florida 1996 0813013917 / 9780813013916 First Edition Hardcover Like New No Jacket as Issued Hardcover 
"A volume of the first importance to the scholarship of medieval women writers.... An ambitious attempt to understand that gender and text might have meant in the Middle Ages from the perspective of the woman writer and reader rather than through the more usual androcentric lens...[The] collection brings together for the first time in one place essays about a whole range of women writers from the twelfth to the sixteenth centuries and from places as distant as Spain and Sweden, as well as the more well-known French and English writers."--Laurie Finke, Kenyon College"Brings together, under three main categories, diverse methodologies from...some of the foremost scholars and interpreters of each type of material and approach."--Nadia Margolis, University of Massachusetts, AmherstThe women who spoke or wrote in the margins of the Middle Ages--women who were oppressed and diminished by social and religious institutions--often were not literate. Or, if they could read, they did not know how to write. Transforming or subverting Western and patristic traditions associated with the clergy, they also turned to Eastern and North African traditions and to popular oral theater, and focused in their choice of genre on lyric, romance, and confessional autobiography. These essays analyze their texts and reconstruct a medieval feminine aesthetic that begins a rewriting of cultural and literary history.Jane Chance is professor of English at Rice University. She has written or edited 13 books on Old and Middle English literature, mythology, medieval women, and modern medievalism, including Medieval Mythography: From Roman North Africa to the School of Chartres, A.D. 433-1177 (UPF, 1994), Woman as Hero in Old English Literature, the Mythographic Art: Classical Fable and the Rise of the Vernacular in Early France and England (UPF 1990), and Christine de Pizan, The Letter of Othea to Hector, Translated, with Introduction and Interpretive Essay. She is the editor of the Focus Library of Medieval Women.Dark royal cloth with silver spine lettering and design. Textured end papers. Frontispiece. 342pp., index. Solid copy.

13 Derrida, Jacques; Bennington, Geoffrey [Translator] The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume I (The Seminars of Jacques Derrida)
Chicago and London University Of Chicago Press 2009 0226144283 / 9780226144283 Hardcover Very Good Fine Hardcover 
When he died in 2004, Jacques Derrida left behind a vast legacy of unpublished material, much of it in the form of written lectures. With The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume 1, the University of Chicago Press inaugurates an ambitious series, edited by Geoffrey Bennington and Peggy Kamuf, translating these important works into English.The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume 1 launches the series with Derridas exploration of the persistent association of bestiality or animality with sovereignty. In this seminar from 20012002, Derrida continues his deconstruction of the traditional determinations of the human. The beast and the sovereign are connected, he contends, because neither animals nor kings are subject to the lawthe sovereign stands above it, while the beast falls outside the law from below. He then traces this association through an astonishing array of texts, including La Fontaines fable The Wolf and the Lamb, Hobbess biblical sea monster in Leviathan, D. H. Lawrences poem Snake, Machiavellis Prince with its elaborate comparison of princes and foxes, a historical account of Louis XIV attending an elephant autopsy, and Rousseaus evocation of werewolves in The Social Contract.Deleuze, Lacan, and Agamben also come into critical play as Derrida focuses in on questions of force, right, justice, and philosophical interpretations of the limits between man and animal.

16 Hewitt, Andrew Political Inversions: Homosexuality, Fascism, and the Modernist Imaginary (First Edition)
Stanford, CA Stanford University Press 1996 0804726396 / 9780804726399 First Edition Hardcover New New Hardcover 
Political Inversions attempts to understand the forces at play in conflations both theoretical and cultural of homosexuality and fascism. Taking its cue from Adorno s assertion that totalitarianism and homosexuality belong together, the book examines how aberrant political and sexual economies have been equated across a variety of literary, visual, and theoretical discourses in contemporary debate. At the same time, the author explores the ways in which queer theory and historiography have responded defensively to such conflations, thereby excluding from current discussions much important material. Thus, for example, Political Inversions reassesses the work of German masculinist writers of the early part of the century thinkers whose definitive (but politically troubling) contributions to the construction of homosexual identity have been overlooked by a history heavily invested in the liberal Weimar tradition represented by figures such as Hirschfeld. Rather than reconstructing a history of gay identity, the book reads its texts as interventions in the broader political crises besetting democratic institutions in the first half of this century. New copy. This book would make a great gift. Black cloth with silver spine lettering. 333pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied.
