Description

"Jeanette Winterson: A Contemporary Vritical Guide" is a comprehensive introduction to Winterson's writing. It brings together new essays by leading critics writing on key topics across her work from early successes like "Oranges are Not the Only Fruit" to recent works like "Lighthousekeeping". The guide provides students with an accessible and up-to-date critical guide to Winterson's most commonly studied texts, covering major themes and developments, and issues of style, technique and genre, from a range of contemporary critical and theoretical perspectives. Chapters identify and explore the key topics and debates including: story-telling; feminism and women's writing; historiographic metafiction; literary realism and postmodernism; religion and spirituality; masculinity; lesbian romance; queer theory; and psychoanalytic approaches. Each chapter includes an introductory overview outlining key themes, approaches and the texts covered. This is an ideal introduction to the variety of critical approaches to Winterson and her work.
