About this book


This interdisciplinary book explores women's narratives in a wide variety of media and genre, from soap opera and film to the post-modern novel and Shakespearian drama. Adopting an innovative feminist perspective, it focuses particularly on the themes of hybridity and monstrosity in language and the body. In doing so, it raises issues to do with closure and temporal and spatial dislocation, drawing on themes of passion, paranoia and desire.
