LAUGH OF THE MEDUSA CIXOUS PDF

In the essay, Cixous issues an ultimatum: that women can either read and choose to stay trapped in their own bodies by a language that does not allow them to express themselves, or they can use the body as a way to communicate. This text is situated in a history of feminist conversations that separated women in terms of their gender and women in terms of authorship.

The essay includes the argument that writing is a tool women must use to advocate for themselves in order to acquire the freedom women have historically been denied.

This is the concept that explains how language relies on a hierarchical system that values the spoken word over the written word in Western culture.

B, but, rather A vs. We are two French writers who cultivate a strange relationship, or a strangely familiar relationship with the French language — at once more translated and more untranslatable than many a French author.
