Description

The focus of this work has been almost exclusively on deterosexual women, albeit not necessarily constructed as in the first instance sexual beings. Cairn's study focuses on realist texts that appeared after 1968. The importance of that date as a cultural watershed for contemporary France is now a matter of record whereas the concentration on realist fiction goes in some degree against the strongly theoretical and conceptual strain of most of what, especially in France, goes by the name of women's writing.
