New Essays In Ecofeminism Literary Criticism Books

This is postmodern theory at its best theory that resists totalizing language and closure theory that always points back to the text, the creative well-spring of philosophy and practice.
"Murphy is vibrant, insistent, and responsible as a scholar, literary critic, philosopher, and pedagogical theorist. He is a sharp deconstructionist, but also a strong postmodern optimist.
In this collection of essays, he acts as a web-weaver and a border crosser moving back and forth between the camps of philosophy, literary criticism, feminist theory and pedagogical theory linking strands of thought from such diverse realms as Lacanian psychoanalysis, Deep Ecology, postmodern theory, French Feminism, Bakhtinian dialogics and ecofeminism. Gretchen Legler, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis"
