Writing in no man's land: questions of gender and translation

Susan Bassnett

Abstract


One of the principal innovations in literary criticism in the last twenty years has been the debate inspired by feminist writers on the problems of gender and language. While Anglo-American feminist scholars have focused more on sociological issues concerning women, on the construction of gender in different cultural contexts and on historiography, elsewhere attention has shifted to an exploration of the vexed questions of gender and language, the relationship between writing, reading and the body.
