He Said, She Says: An RSVP to the Male Text
Mica Howe, Sarah Appleton Aguiar, Sarah Aguiar
Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2001 - Literary Criticism - 292 pages
The essays in this volume demonstrate the range of revisioning of women's reinterpretations of patriarchal texts. Women's responses are reaching beyond the story and into the primal bases for narrative: the philosophies, theologies, psychology, politics, and archetypal geneses that comprise the origins of narrative itself. 'He Said, She Says' brings together myriad perspectives that cover such primal narratives as the Bible, the Torah, mythology, traditional literary texts, male depictions of female sexuality, patriarchal Marxism, American democracy, and multiculturalism.
