Escape" is what some women writers do when they move beyond what Tucker .

Escape" is what some women writers do when they move beyond what Tucker describes as "patriarchally derived literary models" to achieve a "thematic and stylistic emancipation. Tucker uses the psychoanalytical theories of Lacan and Freud to discuss the ideas of the female subject and otherness. She deliberately selected women writers for her study whose writing could be characterized as both feminist and postmodern in an attempt to reconcile the problem of how to categorize these works.

Textual Escap(e)ades: Mobility, Maternity, and Textuality in Contemporary Fic-tion by Women

Textual Escap(e)ades: Mobility, Maternity, and Textuality in Contemporary Fic-tion by Women. The Rise of the Gothic Novel. Other Gothic texts such as Jane Eyre, Atwood's Lady Oracle, and Naylor's Linden Hills resist masochism by playing out the trauma caused by the prohibition of female autonomy (and therefore of identity in the real world), through repetition whose function it is to recognize that trauma. The Gothic can be self-sabotaging: it points to its own eventual cure.

Using both feminist and psychoanalytic theory, this study seeks to address questions of mobility in relation not only to the maternal presence, but also to the body itself and the constitution of the speaking subject within symbolic systems over which she has little control.

In literary theory, textuality comprises all of the attributes that distinguish the communicative content under analysis as an object of study. It is associated with structuralism and post-structuralism. Textuality is not just about the written word; it also comprises the placement of the words and the reader’s interpretation. There is not a set formula to describe a text’s textuality; it is not a simple procedure.

Textual escap(e)ades. mobility, maternity, and textuality in contemporary fiction by women. Contributions in women's studies,, no. 146. Other Titles. Published 1994 by Greenwood Press in Westport, CT. Written in English. Includes bibliographical references (p. -145) and index.

In linguistics, textuality is the property by which successive sentences form a coherent text in contrast to a random sequence. Textuality is a property that a complex linguistic object assumes when it reflects certain social and communicative constraints. The Domains of Texture, Structure, and Context "The three basic domains of textuality. are texture, structure, and context. The term 'texture' covers the various devices used in establishing continuity of sense and thus making a sequence of sentences operational (. both cohesive and coherent). Another source from which texts derive their cohesion and acquire the necessary coherence is structure.

This study explores the ways that contemporary women writers respond to problems of mobility, how they subvert plot conventions based on the oedipal configuration, how they combine and transform genre and myth, and how they mobilize language. Using both feminist and psychoanalytic theory, this study seeks to address questions of mobility in relation not only to the maternal presence, but also to the body itself and the constitution of the speaking subject within symbolic systems over which she has little control. Writers have been selected to represent both very different narrative styles--from the mimetic to the postmodern--and to represent difference in terms of race, ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation.
