The Third Body

Description

In ""The Third Body"", the poet, novelist, feminist critic, and theorist Helene Cixous interweaves a loose narrative line with anecdotes, autobiography, lyricism, myth, dream, fantasy, philosophical insights, and intertextual citations of and conversations with other authors and thinkers. Cixous evokes the relationship of the female narrator and her lover, a relationship of alternating presences and absences, separations and rejoinings. This relationship assumes protean forms within a complex web of writing, creating a 'third body' out of the entwined bodies of the narrator and her lover.
