Derrida: the affirmative woman and the feminist - Irigaray: mimicry, contradiction and the subject of feminism - The anti-hero as Oedipus: gender and the postmodern narrative - Difference as spectacle: deconstructing mythologies of gender - 3. "We're all consequences of something": cultural mythologies of gender and race in the novels of Gayl Jones - Black.

Through theoretically informed readings of novels by Doris Lessing, Angela Carter, and Gayl Jones, the author argues that female subjectivity is engendered in discourse through the woman writer's strategic engagement in representational systems that rely on a singular figure of Woman for coherence.

Feminist literary criticism is literary criticism informed by feminist theory, or more broadly, by the politics of feminism. This school of thought seeks to analyze and describe the ways in which literature portrays the narrative of male domination by exploring the economic, social, political, and psychological forces embedded within literature.

Robinson sets up a dialogue between feminist critical theory and contemporary women’s fiction in order to argue for a new way of reading the specificity of women’s writing. Through theoretically informed readings of novels by Doris Lessing, Angela Carter, and Gayl Jones, the author argues that female subjectivity is engendered in discourse through the woman writer’s strategic engagement in representational systems that rely on a singular figure of Woman for coherence. Through this engagement, women’s self-representation emerges as a process through which women take up multiple and contradictory positions in relation to different hegemonic discursive systems, and through which they engender themselves as subjects.Finally, Engendering the Subject suggests how women’s fiction can provide a model for a feminist practice of reading that would simultaneously work against the historical containment of Woman, and for the empowerment of women as subjects of cultural practices.
