Summary:This critical introduction for the first time brings the work of the French theorist Jeanne Hyvrard to the English-speaking world. Hyvrard, by training a political economist, combines 'chaos theory', personal history, and political analysis to address the condition and future of the post-colonial world. Original, incisive and committed to new ways of thinking, Hyvrard's work confronts the profound questions of our time: language; the body; women's resistance to physical and psychological oppression; colonialism; ecology and technology; madness and illness; birth and death; and mother-daughter relations.
Much of Hyvrard's writing (like that of other French feminist writers) is semi fictional. Like Helene Cixous, Hyvrard has been described as a proponent of 'l'ecriture feminine', but, as Jennifer Waelti-Walters shows by setting Hyvrard's work in a range of contexts, Hyvrard makes her own distinctive contribution to western intellectual thought by working out from the female body to global politics, economics and environmental issues.
