Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Three Steps on the Ladder of Writing, Hélène Cixous, 1993, Algeria, NONFICTION

"...What the reader will come away with is not a new set of skills on writing, but a new perspective on writing, a deeper understanding of reading (and the importance, difficulty, and seriousness of really reading), and lastly, a feel for the impulse to write, and what that impulse necessarily entails...Cixous understands so much that is pre-speech, pre-understanding, so much that is under the surface and she treats her subject with such care not to explain it away, but to bring just the smallest glint of light onto it..."

(Jimmy, review)

Zanna (zannastar) | 180 comments I'm glad Cixous is here because she is the favourite writer of one of my favourite (female) bloggers
