What makes Virtue and Propriety so loved in Persuasion but so hated in all other literature? This is not a rhetorical question.

Some say an army of horsemen, others
say foot-soldiers, still others, a fleet,
is the fairest thing on the dark earth:
I say it is whatever one loves.

Everyone can understand this—
consider that Helen, far surpassing
the beauty of mortals, leaving behind
the best man of all,

sailed away to Troy. She had no
memory of her child or dear parents,
since she was led astray
[by Kypris]...
...reminding me now of Anaktoria
being gone,

I would rather see her lovely step
and the radiant sparkle of her face
than all the war-chariots in Lydia
and soldiers battling in shining bronze.


To me it seems
that man has the fortune of gods,
whoever sits beside you, and close,
who listens to you sweetly speaking
and laughing temptingly;
my heart flutters in my breast,
whenever I look quickly, for a moment—
I say nothing, my tongue broken,
a delicate fire runs under my skin,
my eyes roar,
cold sweat rushes down me,
trembling seizes me,
I am greener than grass,
to myself I seem
needing but little to die.

But all must be endured, since…

— Sappho, Sappho's Lyre: Archaic Lyric and Women Poets of Ancient Greece, translated by Diane J. Rayor

This is a request for help from one scholar to many.

Hello. I'm new to this community, but I need some help understanding a certain scene in the "First Feminist Novel."

 Hey, will anyone tell me what "reading as a woman " really means, Culler discussed  it in his "On Deconstruction". I have a few questions: 

1)How is reading as a woman an act of deferral?

2)What does it mean to read like a woman then?

3)Exactly what relation has this hypothesis with deconstruction?

promiscuities by naomi wolf

hi! new member here. i have been reading quite steadily this summer and it occured to me that i'd love to read a swift, thought-provoking nonfiction book next. i own "promiscuities" by naomi wolf and did a little audition with it last night while taking a bath. i read the introduction and found, as with "the beauty myth" many points i agreed with and found beautifully eloquent. however, as the introduction went on, i started to wonder if maybe, despite being published in the 90s and featuring the women of that era, it might be a bit antiquated for the sexual times now. one of the blessings of the blogosphere is the constant new voices, information and intersectionalities offered to us. i was a little put off that the book contains only accounts of white middle-class women; also, the introduction mentioned "corruptions" such as viewing the rocky horror picture show at midnight (???), without really giving a voice to why that was considered corruption...

so. should i keep reading? what does everyone think? i loved the beauty myth. and if it has fallen a bit behind, are there other books on female sexuality that i should look into? thank you!

Kate Figes (ed.) The Penguin Book of International Short Stories by Women

I enjoyed reading this recently so thought I'd crosspost about it here.

I started reading this book a couple of years ago but it got sidelined somewhere along the way, so I went back to the beginning and started again. It’s the kind of strong collection you expect from Penguin and I was particularly impressed by the following:

Alice Walker (USA) ‘Nineteen Fifty-Five’. This is about the relationship between a black female blues singer and the young white rock n’ roll star who covers one of her songs.  

Alice Munro (Canada), ‘A Wilderness Station’. Where has Alice Munroe been all of my life? This story about pioneer life is wonderful. Munroe seems to have a way of getting you wrapped up in the lives of ordinary people.  

Sandra Cisneros (Mexico), ‘Woman Hollering Creek’. Cisneros is another great feminist writer I must read more of.  

Bessie Head (Botswana), ‘Jacob: the Story of a Faith-healing Priest’. This story is strange, offering no explanations and ending suddenly, but it's uplifting at the same time.  

Anita Desai (India), ‘Games at Twilight’. This is a fantastic evocation of childhood with its intense feeling.

Luisa Valenzuela (Argentina), ‘Blue Water Man’. This writer has an amazing style.

Janet Frame (New Zealand), ‘The Reservoir’. This is another story about childhood and is masterful in its use of symbolism. She takes you on the journey with the children as they face the fears represented in ‘the reservoir.’  I must read more of her work too.

Alison Lurie (USA), ‘Fat People’. I really liked this tale about the almost hallucinatory state that can result from dieting.

Bi Shumin (China), ‘Broken Transformers’, which is a great story about morality and the relationship between a mother and her son.   

A good book for getting a taste of international women's writing.
