Description

The Dialogue Conference at York University provided an opportunity for a number of scholars to bring a feminist perspective to women's writing in Québec and the rest of Canada. The essays in this volume explore women as readers and writers; the collection concludes with the first extensive bibliography of feminist criticism about Canadian and Québec literature, much of which is drawn from unindexed sources.

Editorial Reviews

“It's a first-rate but very scholarly leading-edge contribution to feminist literary criticism. Its interpretations of Canadian women's writings are creative and unapologetically radical.” —The Ottawa Citizen


Gynocritics is a welcome addition to the work being done in Canada and elsewhere to historicize and theorize feminist writing and critical practice.” —University of Toronto Quarterly
