A widely recognized and respected authority on French literature, women's writing, feminist theory, and Jewish studies, Elaine Marks wrote groundbreaking books on Collette, Simone de Beauvoir, and Jewish themes in French literature. "In Memory of Elaine Marks" continues her legacy of rigorous intellectual exploration, enlivening scholarship in diverse areas of thought. The eleven essays in the collection bring together a number of intellectual, political, and ethical domains that were central to Marks' work: pedagogy, feminism, lesbianism, women's auto/biography, Jewish identity, community, memory, mourning, isolation, and death. In their interpretations of works by Marks, Simone de Beauvoir, Helene Cixous, Philip Roth, Jacques Derrida, Roland Barthes, Saint-Simon, La Bruyere, Marcel Proust, and others, the authors illustrate and engage Marks' existential vision, fearlessly probing the human experience to make sense of how we live, die, and understand both.
